Pokemon GO is huge across the world, with Japan having the iOS game topping charts at the number one spot. This is impressive, considering it topped number one in other places like the US and UK too.
Japanese mobile games also are gigantic money makers. The Japanese mobile app market is bigger than the US’s mobile app market despite Japan having a notably smaller population.
At its height, the top grossing mobile game in Japan was estimated to be making around $4.2 million per day. The #1 spot is usually at least $2-$3 million per day.
