"Pokemon Go" Sets New Record in First Month

Pokemon Go
"Pokemon Go" has just set a new record when it raked in US$ 200 million in net revenue globally on the App Store and Google Play in its first month alone. It beat other top-earning games such as "Candy Crush" and "Clash Royale", according to the latest research.

App intelligence firm Sensor Tower crunched the numbers on the first 30 days of the viral game where players have to hit the streets and catch Pokemon.

Sensor Tower found that at the point when the game was launched in Japan on 22 July 2016, revenue growth accelerated significantly.

As a comparison, "Clash Royale", which was released in early March, earned just under US$ 125 million in its first 30 days. "Clash Royale" was made by Supercell, the company behind "Clash of Clans" which was recently bought by Chinese internet giant Tencent for US$ 8.6 billion.

"Pokemon Go" also earned more than seven times as much net revenue in its first month as "Candy Crush Soda Saga", the viral hit which was released in 2014.
