Since its release this summer, more Japanese have played Pokémon GO (Niantic) than any other mobile game.


This is reported by The Asahi Shimbun. In a survey conducted by the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, 13 thousand people were interviewed. The publication was interested in what games users played and what money they spent on.

The project in which the largest number of respondents played turned out to be Pokémon GO. He was ahead of such middle-aged and popular titles as Puzzle & Dragons (GungHo) and Monster Strike (Mixi).

In Japan, the game on November 27 was not included in the Top 100 apps by downloads on iOS, but ranked 5th among all apps by revenue. In Russia, the game has not yet been officially released.
