Square Enix’s video game division stashed away a Metal Slime King’s fortune. The publisher reported 109,949 million yen – that’s $1.19 billion – of video game sales this past year. Compared to the same period a year ago, sales are up 128.4%.
Out of the $1.19 billion, 23,814 million yen ($258 million) was operating profit. In other words, Square Enix’s game division made $258 million after all of their expenses. This figure is up 254% compared to last year.
Million selling games such as Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie, Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, and Final Fantasy XIII contributed to those figures.
