Fire Emblem Heroes is Nintendo's first mobile game to spend $1 billion on it ...

Back in February, Fire Emblem Heroes was approaching $1 billion in lifetime global player spending. Today, Sensor Tower reports that the strategy RPG mobile spin-off has exceeded that figure, making Nintendo the most successful mobile game ever (thanks gameindustry.biz!). It also indicates that the crossover game is the most successful Fire Emblem game ever.

Heroes is now the only one of Nintendo''s mobile titles to achieve the $1 billion mark, and it is pretty ahead of the next-best competitors from the Big N Mario Kart Tour and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, which both raised $282 million in worldwide capital.

Dragalia Lost, which is currently in its final chapter and will begin closing later this year, is the fourth largest figure at $168 million.

Fire Emblem Heroes was first launched in 2017 and has now become one of Japan''s most popular mobile games, with over half of the game''s revenue generating from Japan ($540.6 million) and around 8.4 million downloads.
