According to statistics released by app marketing firm Sensor Tower, Nintendo’s second mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, grossed a total of $2.9 million in worldwide revenue after just 24 hours on the App Store.

According to the firm’s Store Intelligence data, combined worldwide downloads have surpassed the 2 million mark, bringing in estimated $2.9 million in its first day of availability. The estimate is substantially lower than first-day performances put in by Nintendo’s blockbuster Super Mario Run, which grossed $8.4 million. However, Pokemon Go is still on top of the list with a total of $10.2 million in gross revenue generated in the first 24 hours.

The comparison with Super Mario Run is a bit misleading as Nintendo requires a $9.99 in-app purchase to unlock the full game, while Fire Emblem uses in-app purchases for in-game assets like battle orbs.

Fire Emblem earned about 2 million downloads on day one, on par with Supercell’s popular Clash Royale.┬áThe report notes Japanese customers account for an overwhelming majority of Fire Emblem downloads, with the U.S. coming in a distant second.
