Namco Bandai posted improved financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2010, despite recording less than expected sales for Ninja Theory's Enslaved.
Tekken 6 was the company's biggest seller during the quarter, moving 1,080,000 copies, but Enslaved only managed to shift 460,000 units.
Net sales during the quarter were up 1.8 percent over the same period a year earlier to 288,030 million yen (£2.2b), while the company swung from a loss of 11,744 million yen to a profit of 3,673 million yen (£27.8m).
Namco Bandai marketing director Lee Kirton said of Enslaved last week: "It didn't perform as well as we hoped it would, but we're very proud of how it was received by both the media and the gamers who have experienced it.
"I can't discuss where we are in terms of a sequel, but we're looking at reviews and feedback from the press and because of the gameplay and quality that Enslaved delivered, we see it as a great catalogue title going forward."
