Namco-Bandai Q3 Fiscal 2011 Figures
Published by 03 February 2011, 2:08 PM EST

Namco-Bandai has posted a ¥5.6 billion (approximately $68.6 million) profit for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

For the first time in quite a while, the Dragon Ball franchise did not perform well enough to show up in the top five-to-six franchises to allow for more extensive net sales figures.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise dropped in net sales from ¥2.6 billion the first three quarters of fiscal 2010 to ¥1.7 billion this year, and the company is still forecasting a drop down to ¥2.7 billion (same as forecast last quarter) for the full year compared to ¥3.3 billion in fiscal 2010.

No individual Dragon Ball video game sales were noted in the report — both TAG VS / Tenkaichi Tag Team (PSP) and Raging Blast 2 (PS3/360) were released this past quarter (the latter having a first week that could be spun as either “good” or “bad”, being the best-selling game that week, but selling 10,000 less copies than its predecessor).
