Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Sensor Tower: Nintendo's Mobile Game Revenue in 2018 was $348 Million

The Super Mario Run model of higher price for all content really didn't work out.

Never heard of Dragalia Lost. Curious about Mario Kart. If something like Fire Emblem does as well as it does, Mario Kart could surely be gigantic.

People much prefer something more....insidious. 

Heroes is fine enough compared to other mobile games that do what it does, but it does strike as 'we tried a more moral approach than most phone games and it backfired. Let's do the less moral approach going forward.'



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Amazing! I really want Nintendo to do another game like FE Heroes. Maybe from the Mario universe since there are lots of characters in it.

Mario Kart Tour can be the next big game to come on the Smartphones. LOTS of People know MK just like Pokemon.

I also like to see a Zelda game in 2020.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Super Mario Run is about 20 times as popular as Fire Emblem Heroes, yet its revenue is 20 times less. So basically, Nintendo makes 400 times more money per player with FE Heroes than they do with Super Mario Run.

They really should have come up with a better monetisation model for Mario.

I'm surprised by Nintendo, amazing job. People seem to like Dragalia lost according to the reviews, and of all franchises to see FE outperform Animal Crossing and Mario by a very big margin goes to show that mobile is a different beast altogether.
