Square Enix reports $75 million profit for fiscal 2012

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Despite tough financial losses in recent years, Square Enix has managed to bounce back with some positive results for the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2012.

Net sales during the one-year period totaled 127.89 billion yen ($1.6 billion), resulting in a 2.1 percent year-over-year increase. Taking into account taxes and operating costs, Square Enix’s profit reached 6.06 billion yen ($75.9 million).

Square Enix President Yoichi Wada released a statement regarding the financial reports, citing Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIII-2 as key factors in the company’s success.

“During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, the Group’s results were favorable due to increased sales of console games boosted by our major titles, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIII-2, as well as continued expansion of content from growth areas such as the web and smartphones,” he explained.

With Square Enix back out of the red, hopefully the prospect of another Deus Ex sequel will seem reasonable.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
