Sony becomes the top earning mobile game company in Japan

#1
They technically took the spot in August, but now that it's held through to September with increasing revenue from Madoka, they're potentially set up for some long term dominance.

This is driven by Fate/Grand Order, the #1 top grossing mobile game in the world right now, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record, which to my understanding is like Fate/Grand Order, but for Madoka.

Also, these are games published by Sony's Aniplex division, and should not be confused with their Sony Interactive Entertainment's PlayStation driver ForwardWorks division, which is doing poorly.

Also of note is that a foreign developed and published game (Lineage 2 Revolution) is in the top 10, which is basically unheard of.

Carry on, just don't add anyone interesting from hollow ataraxia / tsukihime / mahoyo. Don't need the remaining good type-moon entities to be tainted by the fgo fanbase. The 3 hours where people pretended to care about kara no kyoukai was enough.

Do these get lumped into the Gaming segment or Mobile segment revenue during earnings call?

You seem kind of teed that Ryougi was not a permanent thing? :p

I don't even think introducing Arc to the game would be fair honestly speaking, but i think its inevitable that Mahoyo and Tsukihime get in on the action, in addition to avenger..

Shirou has just made a full on appearance in FGO after all, its a matter of time

I never cease to be impressed by how well an IP that started as porn has managed to do for itself.
:l Calling Tsukihime or FSN porn is like calling a rated R movie porn, especially after the realta nua versions came out.

It was such a small part of fate and tsukihime to begin with....HF aside. And kohaku/hisui's routes

Kara no kyoukai isn't porn.

FGO can have Shirou. Also Arc and maybe Tohno.
If I see news of Karen, anyone from mahoyo, or anyone else from tsukihime / melty blood, eternal ddosing of FGO servers will commence!

Sony beat Nintendo in a handheld market? Pinch me!
You joke but this is an area they have years of experience in.

It was funny seeing ppl saying they should copy Nintendo, not knowing they have been doing mobile gaming years before Nintendo.

I know it's a bit an exaggeration compared to the contemporary use of the word, and I don't at all mean it in a derogatory manner! Amazing things have been done with the original concept, which coincidentally happened to be the best damn hero fantasy battle setting ever. If you tried to explain the roots of the series to the average (western) person on the street, however, you'd most easily describe it as porn.

Sony/ForwardWork's newest game cratered I assume. They quickly dropped off the dls list and never in top grossing; was it the same on the Play store?

No I meant Kara no Kyoukai light novels literally don't haver sex in them. I think? Have never read. They came before Tsukihime. Calling that or FSN porn is fair enough I guess. People will know what you mean.

I'm pretty sure FSN was pretty terrible in that regard lol.
