Konami Now Boasts 20 Million Social Gamers In Japan [Social Games]


It’s no secret that Konami is clearly the most successful of all video game makers in the Japanese social gaming market. Their flagship title, Dragon Collection, for example, just hit 6 million users on GREE.

And now Konami announced that it now counts a whopping 20 million registered players across all their social games in Japan.

The company explains:

In addition to “DRAGON COLLECTION,” which has garnered over 6 million registered users, and “SENGOKU COLLECTION,” which has garnered over 3 million registered users, the number of several other social games registered users are still growing, including “CROWS X WORST – Saikyou Densetsu,” based on the popular mangas CROWS and WORST, the Japan Professional Football League-licensed “J.League™ Dream Eleven,” and the original title “HISHO COLLECTION.”

To commemorate the milestone, Konami started various in-game “thank you” campaigns that allow users to get points and special virtual items for a limited period of time.

The company reported 15 million users for their titles in February.

For context, Bandai Namco hit 10 million registered users for their social games in Japan in January (although this number is surely around 15 million now).
