The new milestone was reached on May 31.
Quiz RPG stood at 17 million users at the beginning of this year.
It seems to be just a matter of time until Quiz RPG will actually be the biggest game in Japan by number of downloads – ahead of Puzzle & Dragons.
There are two big bullet points to take into account here.
First, Puzzle & Dragons was launched much earlier than Quiz RPG (namely in February 2012, on iOS first). When the Colopl title was released in Japan (in March 2013, on Android first), Puzzle & Dragons already boasted over 10 million users and had been advertised on TV for half a year.
Second, Quiz RPG is growing faster than Puzzle & Dragons as of late. While it took Colopl just 18 days to increase downloads from 25 to 26 million for its title, Puzzle & Dragons needed 37 days to get from 27 to 28 million.
In fact, the last time it took GungHo such a long time to add a million downloads was in the fall of 2012, before TV advertising began.
However, the key bragging rights, namely for operating Japan’s top grossing game, still belong to GungHo.
