Fate/Grand Order Topped Revenue Charts During Golden Week

Fate/Grand Order made over $15 million during Golden Week, earning over $3 million more than Monster Strike, which is in second place. As a note, Monster Strike had way more daily active users than Fate/Grand Order did. Other games on the list include Nikke: Goddess of Victory, Arknights, Honkai: Star Rail, and Genshin Impact. This is the second year in a row that Fate/Grand Order topped the Golden Week earning charts.

As Golden Week was April 27 to May 6, 2024, it coincided with the Kumano Hot Springs Killer Case on the Japanese server. This event ran from April 26 to May 17, 2024. This was the Witch on the Holy Night collaboration event in Fate/Grand Order, which may have explained why the game made so much money. During the event, players could get a Berserker version of Shizuki for free. Meanwhile, the gacha Servants were Aoko (SSR Foreigner) and Alice (SSR Caster).

In 2023, Fate/Grand Order had the first Lilim Harlot event during Golden Week, giving players the chance to obtain Sodom’s Beast/Draco in the gacha. As of the time of writing, she is still the only playable Beast Servant. She is also very powerful, which might have incentivized players to spend enough money to push the game to the top of the revenue charts. The Lilim Harlot re-run event is now available in the Japanese version of Fate/Grand Order for a limited time.

Fate/Grand Order is readily available on mobile devices.
