Puzzle & Dragons isn’t using the Mobage or GREE networks but has racked up 1.5 million users so far – in Japan only, and until late September on iOS only (where the game was launched in February this year).
To give the game an extra boost, Puzzle & Dragons will be advertised on national TV in Japan starting Monday, October 15. GungHo says there will be 15- and 30-second versions of the spot that is embedded below (in its longer version).
As I previously mentioned, Japan is the only country in the world where social games are being advertised on national TV, “at scale” and during prime time.
Puzzle & Dragons in English is expected to launch next month.
