Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links continued to perform well for the company, having achieved 40 million downloads as of April 2017. Its release has also prompted a renewed interest in the physical Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

Jikkyou Pawafuru Puroyakyu was once again pointed to as a key performer, having now passed 30 million downloads. Professional Baseball Spirits A was also highlighted for its success in Japan, while PES Club Manager and Star Wars: Force Collection continued to do well overseas.

Looking ahead, Konami has just one mobile game currently announced for release, the already soft-launched PES 2017. The game popped up in December 2016 and has been relatively quiet in terms of updates so far.
