It was last year that Nintendo confirmed its intention to enter the world of mobile games. Its first game arrived last month, it was released only in Japan initially where it racked up over a million downloads in just a couple of days after launch. Miitomo, Nintendo’s first mobile game, was launched in the United States and worldwide on March 31st and it appears to have done quite well after its launch, particularly in the United States.
Sensor Tower, an industry tracking firm, reports that Miitomo was downloaded more than 1.4 million times by users in the United States after the game was launched on March 31st.
This figure represents downloads across both iOS and Android devices and doesn’t include the days that Miitomo spent on the top download charts for both platforms.
The Miitomo app has seen over 51 percent of its installs originate from the United States even though it had a head start in Japan. Other top regions for this game include the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Canada, however, these markets represented about ten percent of the total download volume each.
Miitomo is Nintendo’s first foray into the world of mobile gaming. Nintendo is planning to come out with four additional games for iOS and Android over the next year.
