Umbrella Corps

Capcom is planning a “full-scale offensive” for the second half of its fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the company’s latest financial results reveal.

The news comes via the following quote:

In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company is scheduled to release the strategic titles of “Sengoku BASARA: Sanada Yukimura-den” (for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3), which showcases the life of Sanada Yukiura, and “Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps” (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the “Resident Evil” series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as a warm up to the full-scale offensive planned for the second half of the year. Additionally, the Company is also scheduled to launch “Ace Attorney 6” (for the Nintendo 3DS system) and “Monster Hunter Stories” (for the Nintendo 3DS system).

Ace Attorney 6 is due out for 3DS in Japan on June 9. Umbrella Corps is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe on June 21. Sengoku Basara: Sanada Yukimura-den is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in September. Monster Hunter Stories is still to be dated.

(Editor’s Note: We had originally misinterpreted this quote as Capcom planning to release a “full-scale” Resident Evil before the end of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017. However, looking at the Japanese version of the press release, it is clear that Capcom is referring to a “full-scale offensive” in general following the releases of the aforementioned games.)
