Digital games success drives numbers up at Sega

Sega has reported a 102 per cent increase in operating income to ¥38.53bn for the year ending March 31st.

Net sales climbed 17.6 per cent to ¥378bn thanks in part to the launch of titles such as top performer Total War: Rome 2 (1.13m units), Football Manager 2014 (790k), Sonic Lost World (710k) and Company of Heroes 2 (680k).

Nonetheless, software sales were down year-on-year with the numbers instead being propped up by a strong digital performance. Online RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 and smartphone titles such as Puyopuyo Quest did the business, as did smartphone versions of Sega Sammy's pachinko titles.

As a result the company confirmed that it will increase its focus on mobile and continue to distance itself from the traditional games market.
