Square Enix Gets A Phoenix Down

Despite a 15.5% drop in net sales over the last six months, ending September 30, Square-Enix has reported that it has nearly doubled its net income from the same period last year.

Square-Enix thanks Eidos Montreal-developed Deus Ex: Human Revolution for helping tremendously with 2.18 million units shipped as well as better returns on mobile platforms and social-networking games. Dungeon Siege III also shipped 820,000 units and the (unfortunately) Japan-only Dragon Quest 25th Anniversary package shipped 350,000 units.

Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada says that this fiscal period was a "rebuilding year" (a self-cast Regen?), and they plan to create "10 major IPs", completely retool the slip-up that was Final Fantasy XIV Online, and follow through with its "Winter of RPGs" campaign on PlayStation Network that will see rereleases of Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy V, and Final Fantasy VI starting November 6th.
