Tecmo Koei posts massive, mega, gigantic profit

At a time where developers are being closed for just one failed game, and mid-tier publishers like THQ are shutting down for any number of economic reasons, one mid-to-large publisher, Tecmo Koei, is showing everyone how it's done. (Industry, Tecmo Koei)

They should rename the series:
''Alive not Dead,'' after those profits! xD

jiggly phisics and brutal dismemberment.

the two things that sells more than anything else.

also this: "That's right. Nearly 300 per cent profit increase. And most interestingly? That profit didn't come from either mobile or online gaming, which is the direction every other publisher seems to be pointing at the moment. Tecmo Koei's online and mobile division actually reported a 10 per cent drop in sales to ¥3.8 billion ($40.8m/£25.9m)."

Drugs and alcohol says "Hi"

Nice to see Temco Koei doing good in hard times. DoA5 is a great game. Looking forward future titles.

There goes Tecmo Koei, proving yet again violence and boobs sells everything lol

They do make some damn good games though.

oh yeah, violence and boobs do sell, but if their games played like shit they wouldn't have a 300% profit.

Good for them.

I hope we see more bad ass Ninja Gaiden's and DOA's or hell completely new IP's by them.

I hope Razor's Edge sold well for them on WiiU. Would really love for some good news in that direction because I would like to see more developers being profitable on a Nintendo platform, other than Nintendo that is.

Alright Koei...I know this will never happen, but how bout you remake Inindo: way of the ninja. This was an snes game that was ahead of its time in concept and gameplay features, but it was overlooked because of terrible graphics and sound.

well deserved i always liked them. and it seems that releasing DOA on PS3 was the right move cause lots of PS3 owners were waiting for a come back and i'm sure there are more DOA fans on PS3 than 360.

i want this game so bad but im waiting to get it on vita.. I would get both PS3 & vita versions but thats a waste of money.. The game is only $30 right now brand new but im still gonna wait it out.. I love the DOA series.. I was more interested in MK, MvC, virtua fighter, killer instict, etc when the 1st came out but dreamcast made me fall in love with DOA when part 2 came out
