Monolith Soft Profits Grow from 404M Yen to 800M Yen
More profits for the company is only a good thing. This will allow them to provide more funding for upcoming titles currently in development. There has been no announcement on the next Monolith Soft title, but you can make a few educated guesses to figure out what it might be. It most likely will be Xenoblade Chronicles 4 if Future Redeemed is anything to go by.
Their most recent title, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, has proven to be a massive success for the company. The game has sold over 1.81 million copies to date, making it the second-best-selling Xenoblade title already. You can read our review of the game here.
