Final Fantasy XIV and Nier Automata called out for rise in Square Enix digital revenue

Square Enix has said that its digital portfolio of titles helped boost its revenue for the most recent quarter.

The Japanese publishing giant called out Nier Automata in particular, saying taht it had strong download sales on the console side of things.

Meanwhile, long-running MMO Final Fantasy XIV was also called out with the publisher saying that the recent Stormblood expansion had helped boost monthly subscriber figures, as well as net sale and operating income year-on-year.

Overall, the Digital Entertainment sector generated ¥44bn in net sales, a 17.7 per cent rise, while operating income saw a 44.9 per cent hike to ¥13.7bn.

This figure helped make up for declining physical sales that the publisher saw in the quarter ending June 30th.
