Mixi has released its financials for its Q3 FY18 for the nine months ending December 31st 2017.
The company posted revenues of $1.27 billion for the period, down 5.3 per cent year-on-year. Profits also fell by 35.3 per cent year-on-year to $236.4 million for the period.
Mixi is attributing most of its profit drop to the closure of its Ticketcamp service. The service was shut down following allegations that a former representative of Hunza, a Mixi subsidiary, was an accessory to fraud.
On the games side of business, Mixi has continued to focus its attentions almost entirely on Monster Strike. This included running a fourth-anniversary event in the game, orchestral concerts around Japan and a Monster Strike Bingo event.
The company did not offer any suggestions as to its future plans for the series. It cleared 40 million downloads of Monster Strike in Q2, and the game has seen a small increase in downloads since.
Monster Strike is estimated by SuperData Research to have been the third-highest grossing game of 2017, generating $1.3 billion for the year. Sensor Tower believes it was the highest grossing game of the year on mobile, but did not provide a revenue estimate.
