In 2018, Fate/Grand Order drew widespread media attention due to reports of a 31-year old Japanese man identified only as Daigo, claiming to have spent $70,000 to purchase the game's currency called Saint Quartz. This is used to summon servants. Daigo kept on spending cash in-game in his desire to get high-level characters and ended up spending more to strengthen them once they were acquired. In an interview, the gamer said, “Some people spend $18 on a movie and feel moved. I’ve spent $70,000 on FGO. But it moves me.” This incident highlighted the popularity of FGO. According to The Wall Street Journal, the game is now partly responsible for Sony's soaring operating profit, which is expected to break $1 billion this fiscal year. As of March 2018, the app contributes an average of $2.5 million every day. The game is very popular in Japan and reports indicate that the level is comparable to the success of Pokémon Go. FGO is also gaining traction in other parts of the world such as in U.S. and Canada where it already surpassed 1 million downloads after its June 2017 Android release there. According to weekly revenue estimates from analyst firm Priori Data, Fate/Grand Order grossed approximately $370 million from in-app purchases between August 2015 and December 2016, including $175 million on the App Store (peaking at $5.6 million weekly revenue) and $195 million on Google Play (peaking at $3.3 million weekly). The game later grossed ¥89.6 billion ($799 million) in Japan between January 2017 and October 3, 2017. Fate/Grand Order went on to gross $982 million worldwide in 2017, making it the year's sixth highest-grossing mobile game. In January 2018, it was the month's fifth highest-grossing game on the Google Play Store, where it grossed $17.81 million that month. The game had a monthly revenue of at least ¥10 billion ($89.15 million) in February 2018. The game had an estimated monthly revenue of $58 million in both April 2018 and May 2018 (grossing $116 million over the two months), with Sensor Tower estimating Japanese revenue at $29 million on the App Store and $24 million on Google Play, Chinese revenue at $3 million on the App Store, and the English version's revenue at $1 million on the App Store and $1 million on Google Play.
