Nippon Ichi increases net income forecast to ¥203m
Vita and PS3 sales of Disgaea franchise higher than expected
Nippon Ichi's latest consolidated earnings estimate for the fiscal year has increased totals for operating income and net income.
Net income estimates are up to ¥203 million from ¥59 million, and operating income is now ¥303 million, previously ¥107 million. Strong sales on both PlayStation Vita and PS3 for the Disgaea have helped boost the numbers for the Japanese publisher.
Sales are down from ¥2,288 million to ¥2,246 million, which the company attributes to release delays for The Witch And The Hundred Soldiers and the US edition of Disgaea 3 Return.
