Kim Kardashian’s mobile game made $51 million in revenue in 4 months

SuperData Research’s roundup of the US digital gaming market has just come out. One key figure for me: Kim Kardashian: Hollywood made $51 million in its first four months. Given that this is a US report, that might be in the US only, which suggests the game is more than on-track to deliver $100 million in revenue in its first year.

Kudos for Glu for realising that taking a game with proven mechanics and reskinning it (and doing it well) with a popular celebrity would do very well financially.

And, as SuperData say, expect to see “a run on celebrity-based mobile and social games.”
