Today, publisher Square Enix announced strong increases in annual revenue (¥111.9 billion/$932.7 billion) and operating income (¥17.3 billion/$144 million) for the end of FY2015.

This positive announcement couldn’t have come at a better time. After Capcom posted its lowest revenue earnings since 2004 less than a week ago, it started to look like a meager financial year for game publishers. With impressive increases of 18.4% and 61.3% for revenue and operating income respectively, other publishers can look to Square Enix as a perfect example of how one can be successful in both the traditional (i.e.: console/PC) and mobile games market.

With an impressive lineup of traditional games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Just Cause 3 expected to launch during the holiday season, the company expects to see even more significant growth in this market for the upcoming fiscal year.

In the mobile sector, the company mentioned that games like Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Dragon Quest: Monsters Super Light “continued to show strong performance” on iOS and Android-based platforms.

With Square Enix hosting its first press conference at E3 since 2012, one can only expect that the publisher will have a plethora of announcements to give gamers, further expanding upon their initial successes so far this year.
