Namco-Bandai Q1 Fiscal 2010 Figures
Published by 04 August 2009, 10:08 AM EDT

Namco-Bandai has posted a ¥2.8 billion loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

In terms of Dragon Ball overall, the franchise dropped in net sales from ¥4.3 billion in Q1 2009 to ¥2.3 billion this quarter, though the company is forecasting a full year net sales figure of ¥17 billion, up from ¥15.8 last fiscal year.

Additionally, Dragon Ball Kai: Saiya-jin Raishū for the Nintendo DS (listed in the document under its international name, Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans) was the company’s third-best selling game of the quarter, despite only being released in Japan for the time being, with 190,000 copies sold.

It is possible that with the international release of the DS game, as well as the domestic and international releases of new Wii, PS3, and 360 games, this will give the DB franchise the push that the company seems to expect it will have.
