Clash of the Titans: Familiar Faces, New Frontrunners

The top of the charts witnessed both dominance and surprise. Honkai: Star Rail maintained its stellar momentum, surging to a remarkable $145 million in March, solidifying its position as a gacha powerhouse. Genshin Impact, despite a slight dip from February, retained its stronghold with $68 million, proving its enduring global appeal.

Free-to-Play Players Should Thank Whales and HSR Development Team for March 2024 Revenue

I wasn't particularly surprise by this because HSR recently had two big marketing moves namely Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.1 Special Program Livestream and also the introduction of Acheron on March 27th!

Uma Musume Pretty Derby - 3rd Anniversary Song [U.M.A. NEW WORLD!!] - It's very addictive.

However, the spotlight isn't exclusive. Uma Musume: Pretty Derby emerged as a frontrunner in the Japanese market, experiencing a notable climb to $33 million. I believe the game is still carrying that 3rd anniversary aura I mentioned in last month's report.

Challenges and Setbacks: Not All Games Shine

However, the picture isn't all sunshine and rainbows. One Punch Man: World took a significant hit, experiencing a staggering 79.23% revenue decrease. Similarly, Love Live! SIF2 MIRACLE LIVE! and Archeland faced struggles, with revenues plummeting to $17,000 and $10,000, respectively. It just goes to show that sometimes, manga turn gacha game doesn't guarantee success... and... uh... greedy developer moves could also bring death to a gacha game.

Established Titans: Arknights and FGO Prove Their Worth

Fate/Grand Order Still Continues to Pump Great Content

Meanwhile, established gacha giants like Arknights and Fate/Grand Order showcased remarkable stability, securing consistent revenue streams of $24.8 million and $24.4 million respectively. This highlights the enduring strength of these well-developed and well-maintained games.

Puzzle & Dragons: A Gacha Gaming Enigma

Honestly, I forgot this game existed until I noticed it's still earning big bucks monthly

Puzzle & Dragons remains a fascinating anomaly in the gacha gaming landscape. Despite a relative lack of coverage by major YouTubers, gaming journalists, and even Twitch streamers, it continues to generate millions in revenue each month. This begs the question: what keeps Puzzle & Dragons thriving? I have no clue.

Conclusion

March 2024 show that there's not much changes within the top 10 gacha game earners but Honkai: Star Rail revenue for March 2024 proves that it's going to stay on the throne for much longer than anticipated.
