The Japanese giant plans on setting up shop overseas.
Capcom has unvieled a strategy for increasing their overseas sales. Currently, sales outside of Japan account for 52% of their total income. Capcom has stated that their goal is to raise that number to 65%. To do so, they have laid out a three-part strategy in their 2009 annual report statement.
First, Capcom intends to continue to develop sequels to popular titles. Second, they plan on resurrecting older franchises that were popular overseas, such as Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Thirdly, they intend to develop new titles that match the preferences of overseas gamers in a partnership with overseas developers. Games that match this strategy might include Bionic Commando and Dark Void, both of which are for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Capcom didn't specify which platforms their strategy would focus on, but they have been a prolific third party developer for Nintendo in the past. Titles like Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles and Tsatsunoku vs. Capcom, both Wii exclusives, seem to fit the first and second part of the strategy. Monster Hunter Tri, another Wii Exclusive, matches up well with the strategy's first and third objectives.
