Alone in the Dark boosts Infogrames sales 80 per cent

Dragon Ball Z also helps struggling publishing outfit

Sales for Infogrames' first quarter were up 79.8 per cent to EUR 95.9 million off the back of Alone in the Dark and Dragon Ball Z titles.

The company did not release any details of profit or loss in its latest financial press release.

"I am pleased with our Q1 sales which have been driven by having two hit products, Alone in the Dark and Dragon Ball Z," said David Gardner, CEO of Infogrames.

"It sets the pace for the rest of the year and gives us the time to begin our publishing turnaround as the next key step to revitalising the brand and company.

"I'm particularly pleased with the trajectory of our US business. Jim Wilson has put together a great team to help drive up our business results and regain our standing in this key market."
