Konami Financial Postings for Fiscal Year Shows 37% Decrease in Game Sales, “Solid” Sales for MGSV: Ground Zeroes
While the studio had a big entry in 2014 with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes in March, Konami Corporation’s latest financial results show that overall the last fiscal year for the company holds some highlights but also a few low points, as well.
Revealing its financial results for the last fiscal year (ending March 31, 2014), Konami Corporation posted an overall operating income at 10.3 billion year ($106 million), followed shortly by statistics mentioned an overall 37% decrease in game sales for the studio during the fiscal year. Included in the financial report were also several other statistics, such as a $2.13 billion earning in net revenue and $60 million in net income.
Konami’s sales information shows that its various soccer titles collectively sold 3.89 million units for the last fiscal year, while Metal Gear titles (including the recently-released Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes) moved 3.37 million units, with the divide between systems coming in at 49% of sales for PS3, PS4 at 8%, Xbox One at 3%, and the remaining percentage divided between all other consoles.
Overall, “solid” sales were reported for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Professional Baseball Spirits 2014, and its variety of Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card games. Konami also previously reported back in February that the studio will budget for the development of seven new titles scheduled for release on consoles this year, with hopes for a promising fiscal year for 2015.
