Square Enix’s latest income report is out and the results are pretty positive. For the nine month fiscal period ending December 16, net sales amounted to 190 billion Yen, a 24.4% increase over the same period last year. Operating income meanwhile dropped nearly ten percent, although Square is expecting a positive outcome by the end of the fiscal year in March. Sales this period were driven by big blockbuster hits including Rise of the Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy XV.
Over on the mobile side, sales have been boosted thanks to strong performances by Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, Hoshi No Dragon Quest, and Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light. Square Enix’s MMO’s have seen a significant drop in income over last year due to the lack of an expansion pack release during the period. The upcoming launch of Stormblood will no doubt rectify that, however it does not come out until the next fiscal year.
