Nintendo’s Mobile Games Generated $348 Million in Revenue in 2018

Most of that money came from Fire emblem Heroes, as you might expect.

Posted By | On 05th, Jan. 2019

While Nintendo’s mobile game efforts haven’t been a full fledged world conquering success like many may have expected, they have still mostly done alright. For instance, in the year 2018, Nintendo’s mobile games made $348 in revenue cumulatively, buoyed mostly by Fire Emblem Heroes and the newly launched Dragalia Lost, according to Sensor Tower.

$117 million of that revenue came in the fourth quarter, which is the most revenue Nintendo’s mobile games have generated in a single quarter thus far. As mentioned already, Heroes was the top grossing mobile game, earning about $225 million; Dragalia Lost came in second, with slightly over $50 million earned, and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp rounded out the top three with slightly under $50 million units earned.

Amazingly enough, this revenue from four Nintendo games put together is less than half of what Pokemon GO alone earned last year, which puts into perspective just how a) relatively muted Nintendo’s mobile efforts have been, and b) how massive Pokemon GO really is.
