Bandai Namco Reveals Sales for Dark Souls III Were “Favorable” During the First Quarter of the Fiscal Year


Developers and publishers released their reports and sales percentages for the end of the first quarter of the fiscal year, and Bandai Namco is one of those who did well during that period.

As reported by DualShockers, the company revealed that Dark Souls III managed to receive “favorable”sales’ figures, as well as other games that belong to the company, in North America and Europe.

In the first quarter (three months) of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, there were favorable sales for overseas home video game software and Japanese and overseas network content in the Network Entertainment Business, and in the Visual and Music Production Business.

For home video game software in the Network Entertainment Business, in North America and Europe, sales were favorable for the new title DARK SOULS Ⅲ, repeat titles, and titles owned by other companies sold utilizing the Company’s sales network.


The percentages show a massive improvement in terms of operating and recurring incomes, which is definitely a good sign for Bandai Namco’s future plans. Let’s see how they will do in the next quarter of the fiscal, and I hope they do even better.
