Nintendo's mobile business hasn't exactly been an overnight success, but it appears to be slowly catching on. Its most recent release Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has hit a revenue milestone. Sensor Tower describes it as a "major" accomplishment, with the app based on the popular lifestyle simulation series now reaching $50 million in player spending globally. Back in June, it grossed $35 million worldwide following its release last November.
The Sensor Tower chart below shows how this game has performed against previous releases in Nintendo's mobile line. It's taken Pocket Camp an additional two months to reach the $50 million mark compared to Super Mario Run. Fire Emblem Heroes achieved this in 20 days and has now grossed more than $400 million since its release in the first quarter of 2017.
Pocket Camp's main revenue has come from Japan - with players located within this country responsible for 81 percent of in-app spending. The US placed second with 14 percent of in-app purchases. Pocket Camp has been downloaded over 25 million times since its release.
