In the Digital Entertainment segment, the HD (High-Definition) Game sub-segment for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 saw the release of major titles including “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE” and “Marvel’s Avengers,” growth in digital sales of catalog titles, and licensing income that resulted in higher net sales than the previous fiscal year.

Net sales declined year on year at the MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) Game sub-segment due to the release of the “FINAL FANTASY XIV” and “DRAGON QUEST X” expansion packs in the previous fiscal year, but the recurring revenue was solid.

The Games for Smart Devices/PC Browser sub-segment saw net sales rise in comparison to the previous fiscal year, not only because of solid performances from existing titles such as “DRAGON QUEST WALK” and “WAR OF THE VISIONS: FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS,” but also because of earnings contributions from “DRAGON QUEST TACT,” “OCTOPATH TRAVELER: Tairiku no Hasha,” and “NieR Re[in]carnation,” all of which were launched in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 .

The Amusement segment saw a sharp decline in net sales compared to the previous fiscal year and booked an operating loss due to the temporary closure of amusement facilities in Japan during the first quarter of this fiscal year. The closures were designed to combat the spread of COVID-19 in response to the Japanese government’s declaration of a state of emergency.

In the Publication segment, sales in digital formats, including via the “MANGA UP!” comic app and of e-books, rose sharply in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 . This, combined with brisk sales of printed media, resulted in higher net sales and operating income than in the same period of the previous fiscal year.

In the Merchandising segment, brisk sales of character merchandise, soundtracks, and other products based on the Group’s own content during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 resulted in growth in net sales and operating income versus the same period of the previous fiscal year.
