Capcom claims to be fastest-growing publisher

Expects to break into top five during 2007

Capcom Interactive has declared itself to be the fastest-growing publisher of mobile games following the release of Telephia's latest rankings chart.

During the first quarter of 2006, Capcom was ranked 62nd in Telephia's list of publishers - rising to ninth place for quarter four. The company also reported revenue growth of 340 per cent during the past six months.

"When we entered the mobile game publishing business in November 2005, we were committed to making Capcom Interactive a major player in this space," said company president Midori Yuasa.

"Now, after little more than a year, we've outperformed many veteran mobile publishers and established ourselves as one of the top ten companies in mobile gaming."

According to Yuasa, Capcom's ascent up the Telephia chart is set to continue over the following months. "With our diverse slate of Capcom branded intellectual property and mass market casual brands, I have every expectation that 2007 will see Capcom Interactive breaking into the top five," she said.

Capcom attributed its recent success to the launch of titles such as Mega Man, Ghosts 'n' Goblins and Resident Evil: The Missions.

The company also cited its June 2006 acquisition of Cosmic Infinity, which led to the formation of an internal development studio and gave Capcom licences such as ESPN Poker Club and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
