Enhancing the Value of Content With the Development of New Games and Games Inspired by Our Proprietary Products

The Gaming Segment includes planning, development, sales, and licensing of game software and internet games.

ELDEN RING, an action RPG developed by FromSoftware, set a world record with cumulative worldwide shipments exceeding 20.0 million units since its launch on February 25, 2022, leading the Group's game business. This title won Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2022, an overseas video game award event.

Furthermore, we are actively developing games inspired by our proprietary works such as light novels and animated works. The Eminence in Shadow: Master of Garden was launched in November 2022 and has become very popular. This is an online game inspired by the popular title, The Eminence in Shadow. We published an original The Eminence in Shadow novel and made it available as a comic, an animated video and in other forms.

We released some new titles in fiscal 2023. ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON (FromSoftware) is the latest work in the “ARMORED CORE” series and the first in a decade. Master Detective Archives: Rain Code (Spike Chunsoft) is a dark fantasy mystery game that we have also released in comic and novel forms. Gotcha Gotcha Games released RPG MAKER UNITE, the latest product from the “Maker” series of game construction software with a history of more than 30 years, and it is rolling the program out across Japan and globally, including in Europe, the United States and Asia.
