Japanese mobile game making $4 million a day


Monster Strike is just printing money

Monster Strike, a mobile action RPG developed by Japanese social networking service group Mixi, made $387 million between April 1 and June 30, according to the company’s latest financial report.

As Tokyo-based consultant Dr. Serkan Toto notes, that averages out to roughly $4.2 million a day.

The vast majority of Monster Strike players reside in Japan, though the game is available in other markets. Mixi plans to push a “large scale” marketing campaign in the West, where the free-to-play title is already available on iOS and Android devices, sometime in the near future.

On the opposite side of the coin, Monster Strike hasn’t been anything close to successful in China, where it’s ceased to accept new users ahead of plans to withdraw from the country entirely.

An anime and Nintendo 3DS game are also in the works, though not confirmed for western release.
