Monolith Soft received a 78.8% profit increase over last fiscal year

Definitely not a soft year for Monolith!

Monolith Soft has had a great year financially according to their latest fiscal year earnings report. 4.57 million USD was earned by the studio over the last fiscal year, which is a 78.8% increase over the previous! With the release of both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, it's no surprise the Nintendo-owned studio is thriving.


Based on the amount, it is profit. But when you say earned by the studio, it gives the idea of revenue, which would not be accurate.

Yes, they likely made some money off Animal Crossing, hence them working on it on the first place, but I think its really worth mentioning that as a codeveloper that likely made up a small percentage of the total staff, the percentage of AC revenue, even if its sales were far higher than Xenoblade, that they received is still not going to be huge.

Monolith could really benefit if they were to collaborate with Intelligent Systems more often.
