Capcom reportedly received a mystery IP royalty payment of ¥2 billion ($18.74 million) during its first fiscal quarter ended June 30.
The payment was highlighted on Twitter by Japan-based analyst and investment advisor David Gibson.
The one-off booking is also thought to be the subject of a question fielded by Capcom during its quarterly earnings call.
Q: I would like to know more about the temporary income recorded in the first quarter.
A: Although it is included in the digital content business, we will not disclose the details because some items have confidentiality. In addition, about this income, it has been taken into the plan.
On Thursday, Capcom announced record first quarter profits on the back of strong digital sales of recent instalments in its core franchises.
