Sega has revised its full-year forecast after weaker than expected packaged game sales after nine months of the fiscal year.
In the nine months ended December 31, 2019, Sega's Entertainment Contents business earned 186.26 billion ($1.7 billion) in revenue, an increase of 12.1% over the prior year.
Entertainment Contents -- which includes arcade products and toys, as well as video games -- made an operating profit of 16.2 billion ($148 million), up 52.8% year-on-year.
In terms of games, Sega had a relatively busy third quarter, with Persona 5 Royal, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and New Sakura Wars all launching in the three month period.
Those releases helped to push nine month unit sales to 19.33 million, up from 18.51 million over the same period in the prior year.
