Despite the fact that practically none of its great IPs have had recent releases, such as Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill, the truth is that Konami can get chest. At least on an economic level, since the figures of its last financial result shows the best year of the Japanese company.
And it is that as of March 31, 2022, Konami has registered record income and profits in all its sections. Revenues amounted to 2,300 million dollars, which represents an increase of 9.9% compared to the previous year. Most of them come from the digital entertainment segment, about 1,700 million dollars.
In addition, profits amount to 595.9 million dollars, an increase of 4.1%. On the other hand, we have the Gaming & Systems division, focused on slot machines, it does not fall short either. 199.7 million dollars in revenue, an increase of 54% over the previous year.
Among the reasons that Konami has put forward for these figures is the enormous success of Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel. The free-to-play multiplayer title has surpassed 30 million downloads. On the other hand, his baseball video games like Professional Baseball Spirits Y eBaseball Powerful Pro Yakyu 2022 have boosted the good streak even more.
We only have eFootball 2022 and its disastrous launch as the great brand that is still at the foot of the canyon. However, Konami is still looking to expand its possibilities in the NFT market, just as it did with Castlevania.
