Despite the fact that Cygames’ Uma Musume Pretty Derby limited to Japan, it is one of the top grossing mobile games of April 2021.

Sensor Tower split its research into three categories: total revenue, App Store revenue, and Google Play revenue. In all three categories, Uma Musume Pretty Derby made the top five. It is currently only officially available in Japan, although players who can use a proxy service to download the game can access it from anywhere in the world.
Other games that made it onto the list are Genshin Impact, Pokemon GO, and PUBG mobile. In terms of total income, PUBG mobile and Tencent’s Honor of kings managed to beat Uma Musume Pretty Derby, however PUBG mobile doesn’t sell that well specifically on Google Play.
