Puzzle & Dragons’ small but enthusiastic North American fan base

Via Gamebiz.jp, there’s news that the North American version of Gungho Online Entertainment’s hit mobile game Puzzle & Dragons has surpassed 4 million downloads.

This isn’t an especially impressive figure, but as someone who has played the English version since it’s release [1], I’m continually surprised by the amount of fan engagement that I see on the game’s English Facebook page, in chat forums, and over on Reddit. Check it out and see for yourself. Puzzle & Dragons may only have a few million English-speaking fans. But they’re pretty hard core.

In its home market of Japan, P&D has over 26 million users.

  1. I confess, I’m such a fan of the game that I have English and Japanese versions of the game running on my mobile.  ↩
