According to Sensor Tower (via our friends at Eurogamer), the title has been downloaded 2 million times in two weeks. 864k of those downloads were from players in Japan, US had the second-largest player base and the UK was in third.
While it might not seem like a bad start, it’s (unsurprisingly) nowhere near GO’s downloads in the first few weeks – coming in at around 75 million. And Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (which is being shut down), received 12.4 million downloads at launch.
As for spending, Pikmin Bloom has so far banked $473k in the first two weeks. In contrast, Harry Potter generated $8 million, and GO earned $116 million in the same time frame.
Niantic likely wasn’t expecting anywhere near the same level of success from Pikmin as its previous releases. Going forward, Niantic will apparently be creating more apps based on Nintendo IP.
