Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow helped Konami to an income high last year, the company confirmed in its FY2011 financials.

Operating income was at ¥21 billion (£159 million/$259 million), up from ¥19 billion in the previous year.

Net sales were down at ¥258 billion (£1.9 billion/$3.1 billion) from ¥262 billion last year.
