When it seems Nintendo is taking the L in terms of cancelling their NES Classic and 3DS systems, they turn in around in mobile game sales.
Nintendo’s Super Mario Run is doing wildly successful!
The game just reached 150 million downloads for iOS and Android combined. That is a huge and fast increase from 78 million in the beginning of the year.
Mobile gaming is on the up and up. Gacha games such as Fire Emblem Heroes and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, adventure games such as Pokemon Go, and now Super Mario Run.
We can attribute its fast and awesome success on its wide availability in over 150 countries, and its cheap price of FREE. Of course there is the DLC and micro-transactions, $10 to unlock all the courses. Which is far cheaper than any game but hey, money.
