Monster Strike has generated over $10 billion in revenue exclusively in Japan since 2013, according to Sensor Tower

Celebrating a decade since its launch, the mobile sensation Monster Strike, developed by Mixi, has achieved a remarkable milestone. According to a recent report from Sensor Tower, the game's revenue has exceeded $10 billion in Japan alone, from its debut in 2013 to October 10, 2023.

In the realm of Japanese mobile gaming, Monster Strike stands out, outpacing its competition. The report draws a comparison with Puzzle & Dragons, another Japanese hit by GungHo Online Entertainment, which reached $6 billion in revenue over the same ten-year span.

Maintaining its dominance, Monster Strike secured a spot in the top 10 highest-grossing games on the Japanese App Store for an impressive 962 days over the past three years. Furthermore, it claimed the coveted #1 position for 245 days, solidifying its status as one of Japan's premier mobile titles.

From October 11, 2020, to October 10, 2023, Monster Strike emerged as the second-highest-grossing game in Japan, with a revenue of $2 billion, trailing only behind Cygames’ Uma Musume Pretty Derby ($2.1 billion). The top 5 also features Aniplex’s Fate/Grand Order, Konami’s Professional Baseball Spirits A, and the previously mentioned Puzzle & Dragons.

Noteworthy during this period is the game's robust user base, with an average of 5.8 million monthly active users (MAU). Sensor Tower attributes Monster Strike's enduring success to consistent updates and collaborations with popular IPs such as Attack on Titan and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Developed and owned by Japanese media company MIXI Inc., Monster Strike, a mobile battler blending RPG, puzzle, and strategy elements, has expanded its influence globally since its 2014 release. Despite discontinuing marketing support for the North American version in August 2016, Japan remains the powerhouse, contributing to 97% of the game's lifetime revenue, followed by Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Monster Strike's journey is not confined to the digital realm; it extends to a Nintendo 3DS port and an anime series, showcasing its multifaceted success in the entertainment landscape.
