Today Bandai Namco released its financial results for the third quarter of the current fiscal year, related to the period between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. They also talked about the performance of the fighting game SoulCalibur VI.
We notice that all relevant numbers are in the black. Both sales and profits show a significant improvement year-on-year.
The same can be said about the Network Entertainment business, which is the one that includes video games.
Interestingly we learn that SoulCalibur VI is considered to have had a successful launch worldwide, and that contributed to the positive results alongside sales of catalog games and new games on the Japanese market.
As a result of the figures from the first three quarters of the fiscal year, Bandai Namco increased its full-year forecast sizable, both for sales and profits. We’ll see on March 31 whether they’ll match the new prediction with actual results.
