Fire Emblem Heroes helps catapult Nintendo to $1bn in mobile player spending
What you need to know
- Nintendo's mobile games have now generated more than $1 billion in revenue on iOS and Android.
- That's according to the latest data from Sensor Tower.
- The biggest contributor by far was Fire Emblem Heroes, which has drawn $656M in revenue.
Sensor Tower data suggests that Nintendo's mobile games on iOS and Android have combined to generate over $1 billion in lifetime player spending.
According to the report:
Surprisingly, Mario Kart Tour and Super Mario Run actually contributed quite a small share, 8 and 7 percent respectively, but still drew a lot of money, a combined $162 million.
More than half of that revenue, unsurprisingly, was generated in Japan. $581 million to be precise. Next was the US with $316 million, 29% overall.
Perhaps the most eye-opening statistic is the fact that Fire Emblem Heroes, the highest-grossing title by far, only accounted for 4 percent of Nintendo's mobile download share. Conversely, Super Mario Run accounted for 244 million downloads, but a very small portion of Nintendo's overall revenue.
