First of all, we get some news about Phantasy Star Online 2 and its spin-off Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, which share their userbase.

The games have generated cumulative sales of 100 billion yen (about $911 million) worldwide. Registered users have passed 9 million (6.5 million in Japan and 2.5 million overseas), and the release of New Genesis achieved the largest number of monthly active users ever for the game both in Japan and overseas in June 2021.

Moving on to Sega’s overall results, net sales were ¥59,447 million (+22.9% year-on-year), while operating
income was ¥3,844 million, which basically reverts the previous year’s result which was an operating loss.

The Entertainment Contents business, which includes games, exceeded expectations due to steady sales of new games and repeat sales of older titles.

According to the forecast for the full fiscal year, Sega expects an increase of launches of new games and also an increase of R&D and advertisement expenses.

Sales for the Entertainment content business were ¥47,440 million (+5.1% year-on-year) and ordinary income was ¥8,533 million (+3.1% year-on-year).

If you’d like to compare, you can check out the results from the previous quarter, released in May.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
