Konami’s Card Battler Dragon Collection Hits The US App Store [Social Games]

Konami’s top social game Dragon Collection is now available for download in the US App Store, after a 3-month test drive in Canada.

The game didn’t really do that well in Canada, but it seems Konami and its distribution partner GREE are now ready to see how American users react to the title that kick-started the social card battle game boom in Japan about 2 years ago.

Dragon Collection currently boasts over 7 million users in Japan across feature phones and smartphones (even though Konami boasts in the English app description that they are spread “around the world” – not really true).

One out of four Japanese GREE users is registered. There are Dragon Collection cookies, a manga, or an arcade game. The title still makes boatloads of yen for Konami every month.

Dragon Collection (which is F2P) in English can be downloaded from the US App Store here. Konami is also working on an Android version.
