Konami Holdings Corporation (soon to be Konami Group Corporation, by the way) has recorded its most profitable year ever in its financial results for FY2022.

Konami attributes Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel as a strong driver for its ‘Digital Entertainment’ performance, with the game exceeding 30 million downloads as of April 2022. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game is also performing well and “continues to gain global support”.

Looking ahead to FY2023, Konami is forecasting continued growth across all of its business sectors, with a predicted increase of 13.1% in its ‘Gaming & Systems’ sector a key point of interest. The company will be launching the highly anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection later this year, but it’s possible the company may have other surprises up its sleeve.
