Another month goes by and it is time to take a look at the highest-grossing mobile games of May. According to the data from AppMagic, Honkai: Star Rail, the hit mobile game from miHoYo, has taken the revenue and download lists by storm.

Honkai: Star Rail is a role-playing gacha video game developed by miHoYo, published by miHoYo in China and by its subsidiary HoYoverse worldwide. It was released on April 26, 2023, for PC and mobile devices. The game was released on April 26, 2023, and managed to make $116 million in revenue in just one month after its release. Honkai: Star Rail’s success is not surprising, considering over 10 million players pre-registered for the game, and it was bound to have success.

Tencent’s Honor of Kings finally gave its spot on top of the revenue mountain for Honkai. The game has been sitting at the top for months and had the highest revenue numbers. The game has a $9 billion lifetime revenue and almost 300 million downloads.

The rest of the list has no surprises or new releases. Pokémon GO climbed up to the 10th spot, but the game has been in and out of the top 10 for several months, depending on the content update. Shadow raids and Rising Shadow events carried the game in May. Who can decline an offer to catch a Shiny Shadow Mewtwo after all?

Genshin Impact‘s decline in revenue can be explained by its sister game Honkai: Star Rail’s rise. Both games are a part of HoYoverse, and players might have shifted from Genshin to Honkai. To explore HoYoverse’s ecosystem and player behaviors, we must wait a couple of months to get healthy data.
