Nintendo’s second mobile game launched earlier this week and it has made a lot of money on the first day. Fire Emblem: Heroes is available for free, but it includes in-app purchases and a solid stamina system, which will eventually force you to pay to play more if you become addicted to this game.
It looks like many players who have tried the game have become addicted or decided to invest some money, because Fire Emblem: Heroes has earned $2.9 million on just the first day of release. Not bad at all for Nintendo.
This amount makes it the third highest ranking app by gross revenue in App Store and Google Play worldwide. Still, with $10.2 million earned, Pokemon GO leads the top of game launches by first-day gross revenue. Super Mario Run came close with $8.4 million and is ranked second in the same top. Supercell’s Clash Royale follows Fire Emblem: Heroes with $1.4 million revenue earned on the day of its release.
As far as downloads are concerned, Super Mario Run is the most popular game with 6 million downloads on release day, followed by Pokemon GO with 4.2 million, and both Fire Emblem: Heroes and Clash Royale, each with 2 million downloads. The takeaway is that Nintendo is off to a good start with their mobile games.
