Sales were 11,546 million yen, 89.9% of the same period last year, and operating income was 1,774 million yen, 61.2% of the same period last year.

Both sales and profit were down year-on-year due to the fact that they were competing against the release of Rune Factory 5, which had performed strongly.

Speaking of the Digital Content business, which includes video games, sales were 6,038 million yen, 74.3% of the same period of the previous year. Profits were 598 million yen, 23% compared to the previous year.

Interestingly, we learn that the mobile and PC game “Dolphin Wave” by Senran Kagura developer Honey Parade Games has gotten off to a good start ranking high in the charts of each storefront.

Marvelous intends to focus its efforts on the operation and further development of the game.

We also hear that Marvelous intends to launch projects involving the collaboration between different businesses within the company as part of its future investment plans. On top of that, it intends to promote the development of existing IP for the next generation.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
