Dragalia Lost becomes second highest-grossing Nintendo mobile game

Game still sits well behind Fire Emblem Heroes, but continues trend of high spend per install

Despite being available in only 11 markets, Dragalia Lost is now Nintendo's second highest-grossing mobile game.

According to market intelligence firm Sensor Tower, it has grossed $100 million since launching in September 2018, and boasts player spending of $33 per install.

When the game first launched, it had the highest spend per install of any Nintendo mobile title; it now sits behind Fire Emblem ($38 per install) and well ahead of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp ($3.30 per install).

Of the limited markets where it's available, Dragalia Lost saw the most revenue from Japan, where players have spent more than $58 million, followed by the US which accounts for roughly $21 million.

Hong Kong sees the highest spending per download at $63, followed by Japan at $47, and the US at $17.

Fire Emblem Heroes remains Nintendo's mobile golden child, with over $500 million revenue since launching in February 2017

Meanwhile, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has grossed 99 million since launching in October 2017.

Arriving in March 2017, Super Mario Run was Nintendo's first foray into mobile, and has a relatively meagre lifetime revenue of $72 million; Dr. Mario World, which was released earlier this month, grossed $790,000 so far.
