It seems like Cygames and Nintendo’s Dragalia Lost is raking in the dough pretty well.
According to Sensor Tower, the game managed to hit a revenue of $28 million worldwide in its first month. This is just under half of what Fire Emblem Heroes managed in its first 30 days. Pretty impressive for a fresh mobile title that features none of Nintendo’s IP!
More impressively, the game apparently outdid Fire Emblem Heroes in terms of revenue-per download. Namely, $18 was spent per download of Dragalia Lost – which is about three times higher than what Fire Emblem Heroes pulled off in its first month!
