It has indeed attracted a lot of us with the nostalgia of playing the yesteryear game on an iPhone/iPad/iPod.
Super Mario Run Trends In “Top Free” And “Top Grossing” Apps
We can’t deny that the $9.99 selling price and the requirement for a persistent internet connectivity weren’t upsetting in the beginning. However, the game has become a great success despite the odds. A recent report from a Japanese Press release together by Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo and Phil Schiller from Apple confirms the success of the game. The press release says that Super Mario Run has seen 40 million downloads in four days after its official launch in the iTunes store. Also, the game ranks in the Top charts of Apple AppStore for “Top Free” and “Top Grossing” apps in 140 countries and 100 countries respectively.
“Top Free?”- So Is The Game Actually Free?
You may be wondering how the game is featured in the “Top Free” category. The Super Mario Run is actually free to download from the App store. However, you have to make an initial purchase of $9.99 to play the FULL game. Most games in the App store ask you to pay for power-ups and access to extra content. Similarly, the Super Mario Run also asks for a one-time purchase of the game’s content.
Mario Games Are Always On the Top
The original Super Mario Bros game is the irreplaceable top-sold Mario game ever. Nintendo sold 40.28 million copies as it has been included into most of the new gaming consoles. After this epic game, the Super Mario Run has become a grand success, owing to the obviously larger iPhone user strength than any current gaming console crowd. It is notable that Nintendo’s Pokémon Go may not be on the top for long like the Mario game. However, Nintendo is heading towards a promising future in the mobile gaming through new ventures like the Super Mario Run.
