Capcom's heaviest hitters -- Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando are just about to release. But that means there's little to profit from in the publisher's third quarter, and so its just-released financial results were weak.

In the three months ending December 31st, Capcom's profits dropped 95 percent to ¥179 million ($1.99m), while net sales were down 8.6 percent to ¥47.22 billion ($526.5m).

Aside from the lack of new releases, Capcom says the global economy and the shrinking Japanese market also played a role in its current weakness. The yen is still quite strong against global currencies, an issue that impacted Nintendo as well, and Capcom has the added burden of a continually challenged arcade business.............

The crisis hits everyone, there are layoffs and it doesn't seem to get any better. Perhaps the end of the world in 2012 isn't just a mere rumor after all?

True. I'm pretty sure they have to meet a quota though. Which Square-Enix itself has fallen for. The first days of Final Fantasy were the exact opposite.
