Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle Revenue February 2019

More than three and a half years after its July 2015 release, Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle continues to be publisher Bandai Namco's star performer. Despite its age, the title brought in more player spending than ever before last month, Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data shows, totaling an estimated $78.6 million worldwide on the App Store and Google Play. This was 36 percent more than the $57.7 million we estimate the game grossed in February 2018.

This sum was also about 9 percent greater than the $72.4 million our data shows the game brought in during its previous best month of December 2017. Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle had grossed $1 billion as of its three-year mark last July, and we estimate that, thanks to an increased rate of player spending, the game has added another $600 million since then for a total of $1.6 billion to date.

Looking back at last month, the title's record spending was driven primarily by players in Japan, who contributed approximately 57 percent of the total or about $44.8 million. The United States ranked second with 24 percent or nearly $19 million.

Combined global player spending led to Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle ranking as the world's No. 3 grossing mobile game for February, behind only Tencent's Honor of Kings and Sony's Fate/Grand Order. It ranked an impressive No. 5 for revenue among all mobile games in the U.S. last month, having placed at No. 20 in February 2018.
