Puzzle & Dragons passes 4 million downloads in North America

Apparently, puzzles + dragons = money.

 

Puzzle & Dragons (which, you can guess, is a puzzle game starring dragons) has just surpassed the four million mark for total downloads in North America. It hit this milestone just six weeks after it reached three million North American downloads. The Japanese mobile hit has performed well across the globe, with worldwide downloads reaching past 30 million. The mobile market is the fastest growing in gaming, and is now a multibillion dollar industry. Having that many downloads guarantees a decent piece of the mobile pie.

 

Puzzle & Dragons is a free-to-play, money-making machine. As of the end of March, it had an average revenue per user of $11.89. That was more than the next nine mobile games’ ARPU combined. Of course, most of that money is coming from Puzzle & Dragons home territory of Japan, but it is still a top-50 grossing game in the U.S., where it competes with the likes of Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans.

 

“A mobile gaming phenomenon, Puzzle & Dragons continues to see tremendous growth thanks to the game’s addictive combination of puzzle, dungeon-crawling, and monster-collecting gameplay,” developer GungHo Online Entertainment stated in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “Through its unique in-game collaborations across a variety of media properties from video games to comic books and Japanese animation, the title continues to see steady growth among Western audiences.”

 

GungHo plans to celebrate the four million download milestone with a special in-game event over the course of two weeks. It will announce the details of the event soon in the app and on its social media pages.

Puzzle & Dragons hits 3 million in North America

In the past 12 months Puzzles & Dragons has been downloaded over 3 million times in North America alone.

 

That’s according to the studio behind it, GungHo Online, with the game having recently hit 25 million downloads in its home territory of Japan.

 

It also became the first game to generate over $1 billion in revenue, quickly followed by King’s Candy Crush Saga.

Accessibility matters

The game has now surpassed 29 million downloads worldwide, with a natural slowdown in take up in Japan now offset by growth overseas.
GungHo has also announced that it will be updating Puzzle & Dragonswith added support for players with colour vision deficiencies.
The firm hopes to make its global phenomenon more accessible by making colour adjustments to HP gauges and element orbs, while also modifying certain in-game images.

GungHo’s president Kazuki Morishita on how Puzzle & Dragons became Japan’s biggest game

Kazuki-Morishita

When Kazuki Morishita set up GungHo Online Entertainment, he had the foresight to supplement his early forays into development by hosting the Japanese servers for South Korean MMORPG Ragnarok Online. It paid off: that game now has 40 million users worldwide, and GungHo acquired its developer, Gravity, in 2008. But GungHo would dwarf that success upon the release of Puzzle & Dragons in February 2012. It’s been the top-grossing app in the Japanese App Store consistently since its release, with peak revenue reportedly reaching around $3.75 million per day.

 

Now with almost 1,000 staff and a market value in excess of $10 billion – higher than Japan Airlines – GungHo’s subsidiaries include Grasshopper Manufacture (Killer Is Dead), Acquire (Rain) and Game Arts (Dokuro). And yet, as Morishita explains during our visit to GungHo’s Tokyo HQ, the focus is not on business but on evolving Puzzle & Dragons and making new titles.

 

GungHo has been around for years, but Puzzle & Dragons catapulted you into the collective consciousness. How did you come up with the idea?


At the time, social games were becoming popular. The term ‘social game’ means something different in Japan; they’re games like card battlers, where you buy extra cards and the stronger ones give you a better chance of winning. Everyone was making games like that, and all they changed was the character images on the cards. I thought that was not a good way to make games, and I wanted to make something that required some skill on the part of the player: a card game with action elements.

Puzzle & Dragons has had 23 million downloads in just two years. How do you explain the game’s success?


The puzzle elements appeal to casual users, but the game has a deeper system that appeals to more experienced players as well, like evolving your monsters and so on. I knew that for a lot of people to play the game, it had to be popular with women, and I had this idea that holding the smartphone horizontally would not appeal to them. Holding it upright with just one hand is more stylish. So we changed the game from its original horizontal orientation to a vertical layout that you can control with just one thumb. That was the major turning point.

Is that a formula you can apply to future games?
No. With hindsight, I could come up with a million reasons for the success of Puzzle & Dragons, but I don’t think I could apply them to a future project. For one thing, that game is already in the past; it worked well at that particular time, but if we’d released it today, it might not have. Players’ expectations change so fast…

We described GungHo’s smash as intelligently assembled, uncommonly generous and dangerously habit-forming in our Puzzle & Dragons review.

As president and CEO, are you closely involved with the business side, or do you focus mostly on development?


I only work on development. Making games is much more fun than business. And besides, without good games, we’d have no business. It’s better to leave the business dealings to the professionals, like our CFO.

Why did you buy Grasshopper Manufacture last year?
Well, the simple answer is that I met Suda 51. That’s all. At first I had no intention of buying the company; I thought they were better off being independent. But we would go out drinking together, and we would talk about it, and somehow the idea rubbed off on me. Suda can do things that I can’t. When I make a game, I start off by thinking about the mechanics, but Suda starts by thinking about the game world and the flavour of the game. We complement each other.

Why has GungHo been so aggressive about expansion, particularly overseas?
Well, the wider the potential audience the better, right? I want to find an audience wherever there are people. It’s less about finding success and more about finding people who enjoy the games we make. Of course, if the games are popular, then that will generate revenue we can put back into making more games. There are challenges to doing business abroad: the rest of Asia in particular does things very differently from Japan – especially South Korea – but every country has its own quirks.

What would you do if GungHo was closed tomorrow and you had to start again from scratch?
I’d have to start a game company again. Making games is the ultimate happiness – to me, anyway. So I think I’d be OK even if I had to start from scratch. Mind you, if the company did go out of business, I’d certainly be unhappy!

DVD/BD sales of the Rebuild of Evangelion film series alone exceed 2 million units sold. Last month, serialized publication of the Neon Genesis Evangelion comic concluded after 18 years, with the first 13 volumes in the series exceeding a total of 23 million units printed. The excitement surrounding the Rebuild of Evangelion films continues to build with the approach of the next installment, the series climax.
