Square Enix is now in the red after the company failed to meet sales expectations for the period of April to December 2012. The blame is partly thought to lay with the company’s Dragon Quest X which is currently available on Wii in Japan. MSN Japan says that sales of the game have failed to meet the company’s expectations. However, Square Enix says that sales of Dragon Quest X are making steady progress. Dragon Quest X comes out on Wii U in Japan next month.
“The slump is reportedly down to the company’s new online RPG venture, Dragon Quest X,” reports MSN. “While the disappointing financial turn for the company can be partially attributed to the burden of running the new online service, it is also down to game sales not meeting expectations. The Wii (and soon to be Wii U) game is however, making ‘steady progress’ according to Square Enix.
