Bandai Namco Holdings has posted a ¥52.904 billion (approximately $482 million) profit for the first three quarters of fiscal year 2020, compared to a ¥53.501 billion profit the same time period last year.


Dragon Ball once again handily came in as the company’s best-performing franchise for the first three quarters, pulling in ¥87.9 billion (a dip from last year’s ¥90.8 billion in the same time period); Dragon Ball beat out the number-two franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam, by about ¥25 billion. The company is slightly upping its projection from ¥115 billion to ¥122.5 for full fiscal year 2020, which would still be slightly down from last year’s ¥129 billion.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise also jumped from ¥15.5 billion for the first three quarters of fiscal 2019 to ¥17.2 billion this year’s time period, also slightly upping their projection for the full year from ¥20 to ¥21 billion.
