Puzzle & Dragons clears 12 million downloads in North America

GungHo's main mobile game Puzzle & Dragons has now surpassed 12 million downloads in North America alone.

The game was initially launched in the region in November 2012. As of November 2016 it had reached 11 million downloads, meaning it has gathered another million downloads in the last 11 months.

It hit 46 million downloads in Japan alone back in July 2017. Overall, Puzzle & Dragons has seen over 62 million downloads worldwide.

Continued success

"GungHo Online Entertainment and Puzzle & Dragons have continued to enjoy success over the past year and are excited to announce our latest milestone," said Jun Iwasaki, President and CEO, GungHo Online Entertainment America, Inc.

"The relentless passion of the Puzzle & Dragons community has been a constant inspiration to us and we’re dedicated to supporting them with new content for years to come."

Puzzle & Dragons has not fared as well in other territories. GungHo shut down the Chinese version of the game in January 2017 just eight months after it was released, and outside of North America and Japan it has achieved only four million downloads.

GungHo was named as one of the top companies in the world in's Top 50 Developer 2017 list.
