Nintendo is going headfirst into mobile now, and their biggest franchise to make headway is the Pokemon IP. Already the franchise has seen several mobile entries, and if there’s any doubt that Pokemon is here to stay on mobile devices, Pokemon Masters is here to dispel it.
We already knew that the game had a lot of downloads in just a few days, but downloads don’t always equate to revenue. But in the case of Masters, it does. According to data collected from Sensor Tower, Pokemon Masters made a whooping $26 million in just one week. As you can see from the chart below, that’s only behind Pokemon GO, which was a brief worldwide phenomenon, but miles ahead of the other offerings. According to their data, the overwhelming majority of revenue came from Japan with 63% of revenue coming from the series’ homeland.
Pokemon Masters is available now to all compatible iOS and Android devices.
