But it isn't too soon to examine how the augmented-reality game's runaway success has provided a new template for developers and broader mobile app industry.

The game, which marries Pokemon, the classic 20-year-old cartoon franchise, with augmented reality, allows players to walk around real-life neighborhoods while seeking virtual Pokemon game characters on their smartphone screens - a scavenger hunt that has earned enthusiastic early reviews.

Let's also keep in mind that the majority of this revenue is in the U.S.as of right now, as the worldwide launch was halted for a few days while the servers were being sorted out.

Currently, the game is freely available for download on the App Store and on Google Play but offers in-app purchases for additional items and power-ups.

Niantic, the company behind the wildly successful Pokémon Go and its predecessor, Ingress, was once owned by Google.

Pokémon GO developer Niantic has declared drone use to be legal in its games, reasoning that the smartphone is still visiting the locations even if the person is not. Iwata, who was instrumental in turning Nintendo around by bringing hits such as the handheld Nintendo DS and motion-based Wii to market, had always advocated for games that got people out of their seats and moving.

On "Niantic's" part, the company has made some effort to address the issue, saying that the request for more access was a mistake and that those who did grant access have nothing to worry about as they did nothing with the information.
