Capcom's profits for the nine months to December 31 have jumped 866 per cent from ¥179 million to ¥1.73 billion (£11.9m / $19.06m), due to a corporate tax refund.
Sales for the nine months to December 31 were ¥49.98 billion (£345.3m / $549.8m), up 5.9 per cent from the same period in 2008.
According to the company, sales of Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite PSP the Best were significant sellers, while sales of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and Mega Man Exe: Operating Shooting Star were satisfactory.
Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles and Okami for Wii saw "slow sales" said Capcom. Resident Evil 5 continues to perform well. PSP title Sengoku Basara Battle Heroes was also credited for attracting a dedicated female audience.
Capcom's home videogame and licensing segments were the only divisions to perform well during the period, with the arcade operations, arcade game sales and mobile business all suffering a decrease in sales.
