Square's financials skyrocket.
Squaresoft has had an incredible year due to their three blockbuster titles that have been released this year: Vagrant Story, Chrono Cross and the recently released instant classic, Final Fantasy IX. These three masterpieces have propelled the ever-popular company to unprecedented financial success. The company's midquarter earnings were released, which shows a consolidated sales figure of 45.7 billion yen, as well as a consolidated profit of 4.2 billion yen. Despite this success, the company still isn't ready to sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor just yet. With highly touted titles The Bouncer and Final Fantasy X creeping ever closer, the famed third party projects profits of approximately 83.3 billion yen. If Squaresoft has projected these figures correctly, Square will experience the most successful fiscal year in the company's history.
