Points to strong sales of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Japanese publisher Square Enix enjoyed a much improved fiscal 2012 compared to the previous year, reporting a profit of ¥6.1bn ($76m) - FY2011 ended with a loss of ¥12bn ($150m).
The Digital Entertainment Division - home of gaming - was a major contributor thanks to strong sales of both Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution (2.18 million copies shifted worldwide since its launch in August 2011).
Mobile game Final Fantasy Brigade is also a roaring success, boasting in excess of two million registered users.
There was some bad news, with Tomb Raider unable to meet its planned holiday 2012 release - the game will now launch in Q1 2013.
