That's impressive. I gave up on this game long ago, it's not bad, just not for me. I had a feeling Japan was its most popular market, surprised by the US market percentage. When I think of this game, I think of whales. And you know, Loot Boxes get an awful lot of stick, this game has them.

I still use it here and there. They've really added a lot to it since it began and I'm constantly summoning characters. I mostly use it when I'm on bus rides or just chillin for a little lite tactical gaming. Storylines are pretty impressive as you progress.
