    A: Although “Soul Hackers 2” is currently struggling to reach the expected sales level, we believe that it is a title that can be sold over the long term, so we will continue to update the game in the future with the aim to expand sales.

    Two Point Campus” is compatible with multiple platforms, including subscription services, and has achieved a record number of users and user evaluations, however the sales volume is weaker than expected.
