Nintendo shared all sorts of sale data about Switch milestones and the new Pokémon games over the past week, but one title that was perhaps overlooked was its tactical role-playing mobile hit, Fire Emblem Heroes.
According to Sensor Tower sales estimates, the free-to-play title has now generated close to one billion in revenue – with earnings of $959 million. It’s achieved this after five years, with its original launch taking place on 2nd February 2017.
No other Nintendo games come close to Heroes – with the second-highest title in terms of revenue going to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. So far that title has made $267 million. This follows with Mario Kart Tour in third, currently at $259 million.
The biggest Fire Emblem Heroes spenders by country are Japan ($523 million), US in second with $308 million and Canada in third – generating around 32 percent of the game’s total revenue.
