It represents over 70% of Nintendo’s mobile game revenues.
Fire Emblem Heroes has been Nintendo’s most successful mobile game so far. How successful? It’s made them almost half a billion dollars. Analysis firm Sensor Tower reports that the game has made $452 million in revenue since it launched last February.
This tremendous amount of money that the game has made means that it actually single handedly represents about 72% of Nintendo’s mobile game revenues thus far. This share would be higher, but the recently launched Dragalia Lost actually has done well enough for itself that it encroached somewhat on Fire Emblem’s piece of the pie.
Do note, however, that Pokemon GO is not included in this number, since it is not considered a Nintendo mobile game. Niantic develops and manages that game, while The Pokemon Company is who they have to go through for it. From that perspective, given the relative underperformance of games like Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, it really isn’t much of a surprise that Fire Emblem Heroes has done as well as it has.
