Back in February, Fire Emblem Heroes was approaching $1 billion in lifetime global player spending. And now, Sensor Tower reports that the strategy RPG mobile spin-off has surpassed that figure, becoming Nintendo's most successful mobile game ever (thanks gameindustry.biz!). It also means that the crossover game is the most successful Fire Emblem game ever.
Heroes is now the only one of Nintendo's mobile titles to pass the $1 billion mark, and it's pretty healthily ahead of the next-best competitors from the Big N — Mario Kart Tour and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp — which have both made around $282 million in global spending.
Fire Emblem Heroes launched back in 2017 and has remained one of the most popular mobile games in Japan, with over half of the game's revenue coming from Japan ($540.6 million) and around 8.4 million downloads.
