Puzzle & Dragons surpasses 30M downloads in Japan

GungHo Online continues to dominate the Japanese mobile market with Puzzle & Dragons, which has now passed the 30 million downloads mark in Japan.

The news comes courtesy of a blog post published by industry veteran Dr. Serkan Toto.

Toto cites a Japanese press release [PDF] circulated by GungHo this week, and notes that GungHo also claims Puzzle & Dragons has seen 4 million downloads in the U.S. and Canada, 2 million downloads in South Korea and another 1 million downloads across Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Those numbers suggest that, on a global scale, the company still has significant room to grow. GungHo Online founder Kazuki Morishita noted plans to do so during an interview with Gamasutra earlier this year, stating his company is seeking to focus on expanding into foreign markets -- starting with North America.

"We're taking it one step at a time," Morishita told Gamasutra. "To have a presence in the U.S. that's as strong as it is in Japan."
