Super Mario Run Gets Free Friendly Run Mode

Super Mario Run Gets Free Friendly Run Mode

It's been one week since the Super Mario Run launch and there have been countless ups and downs for everyone involved. According to Slice Intelligence, a company which tracks in-game spending based on a claimed cohort of more than four million users, in its first three days of availability, Super Mario Run accounted for nearly 30-percent of iOS mobile game revenue.

App analyst Sensor Tower says that the game netted as much as $21 million in its first four days, but pointed out that Nintendo's stock simultaneously hit a one-month low.

For Nintendo, "Super Mario Run" represents their first big foray into mobile games after years on the sidelines, while Apple was hoping that its exclusivity would give smartphone buyers another reason to choose iOS over Android.

Also, note that this game is only on iOS devices at the moment.

Nintendo's first mobile game the "Super Mario Run" suffered bad reviews and led to an 11% drop in the firm's share price. So yes, no wonder investors aren't happy with the numbers Nintendo is putting up since the game launched. The game is free to download but it costs $9.99 to unlock the entire. The game is estimated to have made $5 million on its first day. But once the game comes to Android a whole new market of users opens up for Nintendo, the amount of revenue is virtually endless. What;s more, Super Mario Run has been released in over 100 countries simultaneously.

Regardless, it looks like the Mario craze won't die soon, and hopefully not has fast as Pokémon GO. Despite the effort of the company to fix bugs, the high price does not seem to justify the experience that players will get in playing the game. This comes after several third-parties weighed in on the potential of the game and the company releasing a new feature in Friendly Run. If you have Super Mario Run installed on your iPhone or iPad, then it would be wise to update to the latest release from the App Store.
