Analyst Bulletin: Mobile Game Market Review December 2023

It’s a new year, which can only mean one thing—even more updates to the biggest and most popular mobile games! But before we get to that, let’s not forget all the exciting things that landed in December. Diablo Immortal shows its fangs with a new Vampire Survivors-inspired mode, Homescapes released its first new minigame event type in over a year, and Tencent released a worthy competitor to Eggy Party and Stumble Guys with their party royale game, DreamStar.

You’ll find more information on all the mentioned games, as well as many of the other major updates that landed in December 2023, down below.

That’s far from everything our analysts unwrapped during December. Last Fortress: Underground got into the Christmas spirit by launching a month-long collaboration event with Amazon’s hit superhero TV series The Boys, which included a new side mode in the style of Survivor!.Io. Meanwhile, CookieRun: Kingdom players sought clues to unravel a murder mystery in a narrative-focused event based on the works of Agatha Christie.

Royal Match’s digging minigame also appears to be shoveling its way into more mobile games, with Cooking Madness dishing up its own innovative interpretation of the event type that comes complete with a unique battle pass. Speaking of Royal Match, that ever-popular match3 title also kept itself busy in December with a Dragon Nest event inspired by Scopely’s Monopoly GO!.
