"When we entered the mobile game publishing business in
November of 2005 we were committed to making Capcom Interactive a major player
in this space,” said Midori Yuasa, president, Capcom Interactive, Inc.
"Now after little more than a year, we’ve outperformed many veteran mobile

licensing strategy as they licensed ESPN Poker Club and Who Wants to Be a
Millionaire amongst others. Their revenue grow 340% in the last six months.
