Puzzle & Dragons surpasses 11 million downloads in North America

GungHo’s hugely successful mobile game Puzzle & Dragons has surpassed 11 million downloads in North America in the four years since its 2012 release.

That game has been a hit in its native Japan, but has struggled to consistently replicate that same money-making success outside of the country.

More downloads, more money?

According to App Annie, as of Sunday, November 13th the game was ranked at 139th in the US App Store top grossing chart and 50th on Google Play’s top grossing chart.

It should be noted however that Puzzle & Dragons often jumps up and down the charts. On November 11th the game had risen to 22nd in the top grossing rankings on the App Store, before falling away again.

Sensor Tower data claims the English version of Puzzle & Dragons on the App Store made $300,000 in October.

“GungHo Online Entertainment is proud of the massive success Puzzle & Dragons has achieved over the last four years, thanks to our dedicated fans,” said Jun Iwasaki, president and CEO, GungHo Online Entertainment America, Inc.

“We are fully committed to continue providing our players around the world innovative gameplay through new partnerships and engaging content for many more years to come.”
