Hit mobile SRPG Fire Emblem Heroes has passed the $400 million threshold worldwide, making it the most profitable Fire Emblem game to date. This is after clearing the $300 million mark at its one-year anniversary back in February, meaning it’s made about $100 million in the past six months.

The game has a staggering lead over other Nintendo mobile games in terms of revenue, as Super Mario Run is its nearest competitor with “only” $64 million while Animal Crossing Pocket Camp sits at a cool $42 million. (The Niantic-developed Pokémon GO still stands ahead of the pack at a blasphemous $1.8 billion, however.) Japanese revenue accounts for over half of FEH’s coffers (56%) while the US is a respectable second (31%). More than $20 million in earned by the game each month, and June saw the second highest profits since launch.

With those kinds of numbers it would appear that FEH isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Stay wired for more news and updates on the game in the future.
