Dragalia Lost, Nintendo’s newest free-to-play mobile venture, has earned at least $3 million in its first weekend. The game had a limited release last week, launching in Japan, Macau, the United States, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
Mobile analytics site Sensor Tower recently released a new report that shows that the game was installed 800,000 times across Android and iOS platforms. The game has earned $3 million dollars in the United States and Japan combined. For comparison, Fire Emblem Heroes earned about $2.9 million in its first day, as per a previous Sensor Tower report.
It’s worth noting that Dragalia Lost hasn’t released worldwide yet, and it is a brand new IP. Fire Emblem Heroes’ large fanbase was able to bolster the game’s success, while Dragalia Lost stands alone. It will certainly be interesting to see how Dragalia Lost performs further down the line.
We thought Dragalia Lost was a fine, polished gacha game. However, we were hoping for a bit more. If you enjoy everything gacha games have to offer, you’ll probably get a lot of enjoyment from Dragalia Lost, though others may find the game missing a certain spark.
