Capcom's esoteric RPG, Dragon's Dogma has been performing rather well in Japan according to the company's quarter 1 (April-June) 2012 financial report, that states "shipments have surpassed 1 million units".
Despite the game's success in Japan, Dragon's Dogma has struggled in other territories, although it's "exceeded expectations" on Capcom's native soil. This success in Japan has led to sales of 1.05 million units, that could mean the beginning for a series of sequels.
By comparison, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City limped to 450,000 sales, but Capcom also highlighted that "aggressively" launching DLC has helped the company find its way back to profitable status. In fact, Capcom's profits climbed by 300% to £11 million with total revenue reaching £151 million.
