The strategy game passed the half a billion mark with 56 per cent ($280 million) of spending originating from Japan. The US placed second with 31 per cent ($155 million).
Interestingly, Fire Emblem Heroes has grossed nearly 10 times as much as some of Nintendo’s arguably better known properties like Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
Dragalia Lost, developed by Cygames, was the last game to be released on mobile from Nintendo in September 2018. In five months the title has become the company’s second best grosser on mobile, earning an estimated $74 million. Draglia Lost is currently only available in five countries.
Despite that performance, Fire Emblem Heroes has still grossed twice as Nintendo’s other three releases combined.
