Pokémon GO hasn’t even been out for a week yet and it has already managed to make around $14 million, according to digital analysts SuperData.
Pokémon GO has been hugely successful since its launch and it’s really no surprise to learn that the game has already achieved such a feat. As SuperData states:
“Pokémon GO! doing so well initially should not be a surprise. It is one of the most enduring and widely popular game franchises in the world. It has produced no fewer than 18 full feature films, a cartoon series, trading card games, and a slew of swag. More so, even though Pokémon is operated independently, it is part of the Nintendo empire, which saw a similar consumer response with Miitomi. It is hard to underestimate the strength of this Japanese giant and its assets, even if contenders have emerged in the last few years.”
Pokémon GO can most likely look forward to more success given that it still hasn’t been released in all territories. The UK version has been delayed due to issues with the servers that are still being worked out. No doubt the game will become even more successful once it is available world wide.
Only one question remains, do you have what it takes to catch ’em all?
