Square Enix's HD Games division – aka console and PC titles – saw an 142 per cent increase in sales year-on-year, clocking in at ¥29 billion ($204 million).
The biggest contributor to this spike in sales was Final Fantasy 16 for the PlayStation 5, though speaking to investors – as reported by Bloomberg – president Takashi Kiryu said that the game had failed to meet expectations. A shocking turn of events for Square Enix.
The company's MMOs saw a 22 drop in sales year-on-year, making ¥11 billion ($77.3 million for the quarter.
