Bandai Namco has presented its financial results for the fiscal year that ended on March 31.
Between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019, the Japanese company received 732,347 million yen (about 5,945 million euros), a year-on-year growth of 8%. Of that money, 340,927 million yen (about 2,770 million euros) correspond to the video games section, 4.4% more than the previous year.
Although the company has not given concrete figures, it has remarked that Soulcalibur VI, Ace Combat 7 and Jump Force have had good releases.
Reviewing the figures by country, Europe has been the largest market for the company’s home video games, with 12.7 million titles sold in the fiscal year compared to 10.25 million in the Americas and 4.65 million in Japan. In total, excluding localized versions, the company had 91 launches between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019.
Bandai Namco expects a calmer fiscal year to come, with revenue declining nearly 8% and nearly one million games sold less than in the overall tally for this fiscal year.
