Tecom Koei had their business earnings presentation recently and has revealed their business plans for the year 2012 and beyond, revealing upcoming games, how they view the world market and sales of current games on the market.

First, Tecmo Koei have revealed their support for new platforms, looking mostly at the Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita and the Wii U. To show this support, they refer to three games, two of them will be released in 2012. Games mentioned include Dead or Alive Dimensions (3DS), Dynasty Warriors Next (Vita), Ninja Gaiden Sigma (Vita) and Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge (Wii U). It was also revealed that Razor’s edge is going to be a Wii U launch title. No region was specified.

Second, Tecmo Koei revealed that they will collaborate with other media entities, similar to the Dynasty Warriors Gundam series. One game that fits into the category is One Piece Pirate Musou, which will put the One Piece and Dynasty Warriors universes into one. There was also a mention of a “collaboration with a big title.” However, it is not specified if the One Piece collaboration is what Tecmo Koei is talking about or another popular franchise.

Worldwide sales figures were revealed for a couple of games. Dead or Alive Dimensions was Tecmo Koei’s biggest title in sales moving 310,000 units in the first six months of this financial year (which starts in April and ends in March in Japan). The next best game in sales was Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends, moving 160,000 units worldwide. Strong downloadable content sales were noted, as well as paid content for social applications like One Million Person Ambition of Nobunaga and One Million Person Sangokushi.

In terms of profit, Tecmo Koei has made a net profit of 412 million yen for this half of the year, with revenue from sales reaching 13,635 million yen. This is quite positive news considering that, in May, forecasts were quite negative. In fact, it was forecast that the company would have made a a net loss of 400 million yen.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
