Nintendo’s latest mobile game marked the first time that they released a new IP into the mobile market, with Dragalia Lost hitting mobile devices in September. While the critical response to the game has been lukewarm overall, it looks like the game has definitely been a commercial success so far.
Sensor Tower has released new data that shows that the game has just crossed a whopping $50 million in total revenue, which is truly impressive considering that the game is only a few months old and a brand new IP. This all comes from in-app purchases considering that it is free-to-play, with 60% of the money coming from iOS users.
The company points out that the game’s sales so far have been around $35 million less than the amount that Fire Emblem Heroes made in the same amount of time, with the latter making $75.8 million. However, Dragalia Lost has actually earned a lot more revenue per download so far, with an average of $22 on its 1.9 million installs. This is a significant increase compared to the $9 per install that Fire Emblem Heroes made in the same time-frame.
For those unfamiliar with the game, it is a swipe-controlled action RPG about the bonds shared between humans and dragons. Players will control both human characters and dragons themselves as they take on the game’s monsters, and can construct facilities to increase their battle power and improve their bonds with dragons.
Dragalia Lost is available now on iOS and Android devices.
