The three-month period ended in the HD games (high definition) sub-segment June 30, 2021 included the release of titles like “Outriders” and “NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 …”, but net sales decreased compared to the same period last year when “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE” was released.

In the MMO games (massively multiplayer online) sub-segment, net sales increased year-on-year due to the increase in the number of monthly paying subscribers to “FINAL FANTASY XIV”.

In the Games for Smart Devices / PC Browser sub-segment, sales were due to earnings contributions from “DRAGON QUEST TACT”, “OCTOPATH TRAVELER: Tairiku no Hasha” and “NieR Subject[in]Nelke “, all of which were published in or after the second quarter of the previous financial year, as well as due to changes in the presentation of sales revenues resulting from the application of the revised accounting standards for sales recognition.

Revenue in the Entertainment segment increased significantly compared to the same period of the previous year, and the segment was in the black on the operating line after it was strongly affected by the temporary closings of entertainment facilities in the previous year Japan issued in response to the Japanese government’s declaration of a state of emergency to combat the spread of COVID-19.

In the publications segment, sales of e-books and other digital media grew significantly. In addition, the sale of print media also developed briskly, which led to higher sales revenues and operating income than in the same period of the previous year.

In the Merchandising segment, sales and operating profit declined as new character merchandising and other products based on the Group’s own content were published in the previous year.
