Tsum Tsum by the numbers
Since the launch of the game, 137 Tsum Tsum have appeared in the game (as of May 31, 2017), from well-known Disney mainstays Mickey Mouse and Princesses to characters from their new films such as Jedi Luke and Darth Vader from "Star Wars," appealing to a wide range of users. The game will surely keep its fans entertained as it continues to introduce more characters in the future.
Throughout the game, players collect Disney, DisneyPixar and Star Wars Tsum Tsum. Each collectable character can be leveled up over time and has a special ability that provides in-game help. The most popular character for leveling up is Cinderella Tsum Tsum with a clear skill that allows players to connect long chains of different Tsum Tsum and clear them as many times as they can within the time limit. Beast (from Beauty and the Beast) was the second most-popular and Maleficent Dragon (Sleeping Beauty) was ranked third.
