Konami Corporation's operating income jumped 244 percent year-over-year in its fiscal Q1 2011, from ¥367 million ($4.26 million) last year to ¥1.265 billion ($14.7 million). Within its Digital & Entertainment Business division (the one for video games), Konami attributed the income to Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Winning Eleven 2010 Aoki Samurai no Chosen
was launched on multiple platforms in May to coincide with the once-every-four-years festivities that excite soccer fans worldwide"), and the Japan-only DS girlfriend simulator Love Plus
, which has since been expanded with a followup release, Love Plus+
Other contributing games with "strong sales" included Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 3rd Story
and Fairy Tail Portable Guild
, both for PSP. In the future, the company is looking to make a bigger splash in "the expanding overseas video game software market" with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Winning Eleven, and music games like Def Jam Rapstar
and Karaoke Revolution Glee
. We're guessing we'll see more PSP games from Konami, as well, since that's going so nicely for them.
