In Japan, Quiz RPG is catching Puzzle & Dragons

Quiz RPG,  the high grossing game from Japanese publisher Colopl (TYO: 3668), has hit the 23 million download milestone in Japan.

That's up from 17 million players in January, thanks in part to a TV advertising campaign.

It's now only a few million behind GungHo's (TYO:3765) $1 billion franchise Puzzle & Dragons,  which announced it had 25 million Japanese downloads in early March.

Colopl has also released promising numbers for Slingshot Braves,  one of its newer titles, which surpassed 1 million downloads on 2 April despite only launching on iOS in February, and Android in March.

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
