On Mobage: Rage Of Bahamut Tops 2 Million Downloads [Social Games]

Rage Of Bahamut continues to do well outside Japan: the social card battle game, developed by Tokyo-based Cyberagent company Cygames, hit 2 million downloads outside this country on July 10.

The title was released on Mobage for Android by DeNA/ngmoco in late February this year.  Rage Of Bahamut hit the No. 1 spot in Google Play’s top grossing app in the last week of April, and it’s still there – after 14 consecutive weeks.

The iOS version followed in May and topped Apple’s top grossing app ranking on June 12 (in the US). Rage Of Bahamut was even the No. 1 money-making game on both platforms, albeit for a short time.

Other popular card battle games from Japan that do well elsewhere include Dark SummonerGREE’s Zombie Jombie (mainly made in the US), or Applibot’s Legend of the Cryptids.
