Marvelous AQL attributed the gain to continued Pokémon Tretta arcade game sales and reorders for titles released earlier this year like Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Muramasa Rebirth. Additionally, Valhalla Knights 3 has sold 82,000, units so far which Marvelous AQL said was positive. The PlayStation Vita game will be re-released with extra content as Valhalla Knights 3 Gold.

 

In the near future, Marvelous AQL plans to maximize revenue of Pokémon Tretta and considers the upcoming Harvest Moon game for 3DS which comes out in February 2014 “killer content.”

 

Their strategy is to create strong IP, expand mobile business, and to strengthen overseas business.
