Capcom has become the latest Japanese publisher to pledge its support to the victims of Friday’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.

The company has donated 100m yen and implemented a number of other initiatives to assist relief efforts in the affected areas of Japan.

Firstly, Street Fighter IV on iPhone has been reduced to 115 yen/59p/99c. For the next week all proceeds in all markets will go to the relief efforts.

In addition to this, players of Monster Hunter Frontier Online affected by the disaster will not have to pay their monthly usage fees.

Friday’s earthquake and tsunami means that millions of people in Japan are still without electricity, and Capcom has promised to close or shorten hours at its amusement centres and offices in areas that are powered by Tokyo Electric Power or Tohoku Electric Power if necessary.

Finally, Capcom won't be holding any events in the near future and has already cancelled this year Monster Hunter Festa national fan tournament.

Other publishers showing their support for the victims of the earthquake include Sony, Nintendo, and Namco Bandai.
