Today Konami announced its financial results for the first nine months of the fiscal year 2021, related to the period ending Dec. 31, 2020.
As you can see in the tables below, Konami’s Digital Entertainment business (which includes games) performed very strongly with +33.1% higher revenue and +79.4% higher profit year-on-year.
The rest of Konami’s businesses underperformed due to the closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a matter of fact, the Digital Entertainment business was the only one showing year-on-year growth.
Yet, the growth in the Digital Entertainment business still drove record high profits for the company for the first nine month of a fiscal year.
From the press release, we learn that Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa Heisei Reiwa mo Teiban! for Nintendo Switch hit and surpassed 2.5 million shipments as of January 2021.
Mobile games recorded record quarterly revenues once more, driven mostly by Professional Baseball Spirits A.
In the pipeline, we still hear that Konami is “working hard” to develop the two Edens Zero games announced for consoles and mobile.
