Konami recently announced its quarterly financial reports, and profits and sales figures seem to be great for Q1 of the current fiscal year. The Tokyo-based giant reported 68,636 million yen in sales and 20,278 million yen in business profits. Numbers certainly look strong, despite Konami not having released any major games this fiscal quarter.
Konami experienced 29.2% year-on-year boost profits on sales and a whopping 64.2% growth in profits. The report also highlights revenue from Konami’s mobile offerings and the growing sales of Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card games being two strong factors in driving these numbers.
The company recently hosted a technical test for a new football game earlier this quarter, which is now confirmed to be eFootball. The game isgoing to be free-to-play, and joins the ranks alongside games like Super Bomberman R Online and eBaseball as titles currently under development at its studios. Many rumors have been doing the rounds regarding Konami making a comeback with its classic franchises like Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid– read more on that through here.
