Tecmo Koei reports increased revenue in fiscal 2012, Ninja Gaiden 3 ships 630K

Tecmo Koei's revenues for the fiscal year, ended March 31, were 35.5 billion yen ($443.8 million), up 10.7 percent year over year. The company reported strong sales of its games from the last year, including Samurai Warriors 3 Empires, Winning Post 7 2012, and games it co-developed for other publishers, including One Piece Pirate Musou and Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition.

Specifically, Tecmo said it shipped 630,000 copies of Ninja Gaiden 3 worldwide. In addition, Tecmo reported that it completed acquisition of Gust in December, a developer that should expand its mobile and online business. The company also plans to grow its revenues in this fiscal year by releasing launch games for unspecified hardware (likely the Wii U if it's something launching this year).
