Namco App Store games top 23m downloads

Publisher enjoying boom in iPhone/iPod content

Namco Networks has announced that its iPhone applications have been downloaded over 23 million times since June 2008.

The company currently offers 24 titles for the iPhone and iPod Touch including entries in best-selling franchises Pac-Man, Ace Combat, Galaga and Dig Dug.

"With over 100,000 applications available and three billion downloaded apps, the App Store is booming," said Jonathan Kromrey, general manager of Apple Games for Namco Networks.

"Not only are we excited that our worldwide audience is checking out Namco’s premium iPhone content, but that consumers are coming back for more."

The company claims downloads are averaging 36,450 a day. Namco Bandai continues to pursue the social and casual audiences, last week announcing the Namco Arcade for networking site Facebook.
