Square Enix made more money this year than it lost last year

Which is impressive when you look at how much money it lost last year...

Earlier this year, we noted that Square Enix was no longer bleeding money. In the first three quarters of the company's 2014 fiscal year (the last nine months of 2013), it boasted a net income of 5.18 billion yen ($51.15 million).

At the close of the 2014 fiscal year (March 31, 2014), Square came away with about 6.5 billion yen ($65M) in net income. This is a dramatic swing from the previous fiscal year, wherein the company saw a net loss of 5.75 billion yen ($56.72M).

A lot of this has to do with the success of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, now at over 2 million registered users. Square also deemed Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster, Thief and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition sales "favorable." 

Remember when you said Final Fantasy XII HD was a possibility if Final Fantasy X HD sold well, Square? Holding you to that.
