Fire Emblem Heroes was an interesting choice of mobile IP for Nintendo. While Pokémon and Mario are household names, Fire Emblem is a bit more obscure. While the game didn’t get the first day revenue of the aforementioned Nintendo franchises, it still managed to generate roughly $2.9 million in just one day.
Nintendo is making excellent income of the mobile market, so it remains to be seen how much more of a push they have in this division. The next mobile game from the company, based in the Animal Crossing series, will be released later this year.
