Pair of Mobage Games Rule Android Top Grossing Charts

blood brothers

DeNA (TYO:2432) points out today that its mobile RPG Blood Brothers reached the top of the Google Play top grossing app charts in the US over the weekend. The fantasy RPG has been doing well for the past few months, gradually climbing up in the top ten until it briefly took the top spot this past Saturday (see chart below).

Interestingly, the app that Blood Brothers knocked out of the first spot (temporarily) was another Mobage title, Rage of Bahamut. That game held that position for almost six months. DeNA’s executive games director Kenji Kobayashi is pleased with the success of this up-and-coming title:

Following the success of Rage of Bahamut, we are delighted to see Blood Brothers also gaining remarkable popularity in the U.S. and other countries. […] In Japan, DeNA has accumulated extensive know-how on rapidly iterative game design, where we constantly and quickly incorporate user feedback to our games. We see Blood Brothers’ success as another solid proof point that the model works across borders, not just in Japan.

And indeed, Blood Brothers has been very popular in a number of regions, becoming the top grossing app in more than 22 countries, including France and Canada, plus India, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines here in Asia.

How’s Blood Brothers doing on iOS? That version of the game launched back in August, and ranks as a top ten top grossing app for the ‘role playing’ and ‘adventure’ categories. The app claims over 150,000 downloads to date.

If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
