Pokémon GO Made 1.2 Billion Last Year

Despite news of the recent decline in Pokémon GO users over the last few months, there is no denying that Nintendo’s move to bring the popular franchise to mobile was a resounding success. It has been reported that Pokémon GO made $1.2 Billion AUD in 2016 alone. This huge number is even more of a surprise given the game was only released in the middle of 2016.

Now that Nintendo have had a taste at the potential of the mobile market we’d expect to see more of their licensed games onto mobile devices, and we’re already beginning to see this with the release of Super Mario Run and Pokémon Duel.
