According to market analyst Serkan Toto, who translated Puzzle & Dragons developer GungHo's recent earnings report covering the period from January to June 2013, the company is seeing a sales increase of 945.5 percent in the last six months alone.

Additionally, Toto reports that between April and June 2013 GungHo brought in $4.9 million U.S. in sales per day, for a net income-per-day of $1.8 million U.S. These figures are up even from when we last reported on GungHo's revenues in May.

Naturally, even the most successful moneymaker can't continue on an upwards trajectory forever, although it's anyone's guess just how much further Puzzle & Dragons will go in its market dominance. Toto notes that that growth may already be slowing, with GungHo projecting "just" $138 million U.S. in July sales.

...they have three million dollars of operating costs each day?

[edit]Ok, if the 4.9 million include provider share (1.6m) and taxes, net income could be realistic.[/edit]

Amazing numbers anyway, I wonder what the ARPPU is.

Small note: the game's title is "Puzzle & Dragons," not "Puzzles & Dragons". :)
