Dragon Ball Legends has made over $65 million in mobile revenues to date, Sensor Tower reports.

Bandai Namco's new Dragon Ball Legends has proven a lucrative smartphone game that folds into the company's current multi-pronged strategy. The game has made in excess of $65 million worldwide via in-game microtransactions on both Android and iOS. Typical for the region, Japan generates the lion's share of Dragon Ball Legends' earnings with more than $40 million in spending, or about 62% of total revenues.

We should see continued growth as Bandai Namco rolls out fresh content updates including new characters, movesets, and spending opportunities for gamers to consume and buy. New releases in the Dragon Ball brand should also catalyze downloads and spending, and I'd be interested to see if the Switch's release of Dragon Ball FighterZ will spark more downloads in all regions.
