TOKYO -- Konami Holdings appears likely to top its profit guidance for the year ending in March thanks to brisk demand for a popular line of pachinko machines.
The game maker has forecast a 10% rise in consolidated operating profit to 40 billion yen ($356 million) for this fiscal year.

Konami could clear that bar "by around 2 billion yen, even by conservative estimates," according to Junichi Motobayashi, corporate officer in charge of finance.
