Fire Emblem Heroes Makes $2.9 Million on it’s First Day

It’s safe to say Fire Emblem Heroes is a runaway success so far. According to SensorTower, Fire Emblem Heroes made $2.9 million during it’s launch day on both iOS and Android, with over 2 million downloads of the game. We can also see for ourselves how successful the game is today by examining the iOS and Google Play charts. For iOS at the time of this writing it currently ranks at #11 for top downloaded free apps and #11 in gross revenue, just ahead of Candy Crush. On the Google Play store, it ranks #1 in downloads but doesn’t appear in the top 50 grossing apps (possibly that revenue isn’t as up to date)

Still, $2.9 million in a single day is extremely impressive.

    It’s nice to see Fire Emblem Heroes so successful, but a mobile Zelda game or companion app to BotW would be nice.
