Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle passes $1.6 billion during its best month ever

Bandai Namco mobile fighter Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle has passed over $1.6 billion in lifetime revenue.

That’s according to Sensor Tower, who reports that February 2019 was an all-time high for the title, earning around $78.6 million. That’s a 36 per cent increase over February 2018’s estimated $57.7 revenue intake.

Dokkan Battle’s previous best-performing month was December 2017 with $72.4 million, putting February 2019 on top by nine per cent.

A real fighter

Most of Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle’s player spending comes, unsurprisingly, from the game’s home field in Japan. The country makes up 57 per cent of total revenue at $44.8 million.

The US follows in distant second, with $19 million making up 24 per cent of the total.

In February, Dokkan Battle was the world’s third-highest grossing game across both Google Play and the App Store, sitting just behind Honor of Kings and Fate/Grand Order.

Bandai Namco ended Q3 this February with $1.76 billion in net sales and operating profits of $233.6 million, in part thanks to the sledgehammer strength of Dragon Ball branded mobile games.
