Square Enix 8 Billion Yen Behind Last Year’s Figures

In a quarter without major title releases, our Group's sales and profit were lower compared to the previous fiscal year. At the same time, however, we are making solid progress toward our targets for the full fiscal year ending March 2012.

Our growing content and services areas such as ‘SENGOKU IXA’ and ‘Nicotto Town’ continued strong performance in the quarter.
