It’s no secret that miHoYo’s Genshin Impact is a success. After earning over $100 million in revenue in less than two weeks, it’s hit a new milestone in player spending. Sensor Tower reported that the free to play action RPG accumulated $245 million in player spending in its first month.
By comparison, Fire Emblem Heroes saw $70 million in player spending in its launch month while Fortnite accumulated $25 million (though it was only available on the Apple App Store in its first month on mobile). Pokemon GO managed to emerge slightly ahead with $283 million earned in its first 30 days. While Genshin Impact earned $45 million in 30 days in the United States, becoming the the biggest mobile RPG launch in the region, China remains its largest market.
Player spending in China alone has crossed $82 million with Japan coming in at second with $59 million. Such a response isn’t unwarranted – Genshin Impact received ample amount of critical acclaim (as seen in the accolades trailer below) for its combat, production values and world design.
