Was not expecting: Super Mario Run broke the record of Pokemon GO
When Pokemon GO has become the most downloaded and profitable games in the App Store, it’s hard to imagine that in the same year, someone will be able to catch up with her, but on the head to get around. Yesterday analysts from Sensor Tower summed up the first results after the release of Super Mario Run 15 Dec. To the surprise of many, the game set a new record for the number of downloads.
According to experts, the Super Mario Run took only four days to achieve the milestone of 25 million downloads. For comparison, the Pokemon GO it took to do this for 11 days and the card game from Supercell Clash Royale — 12 days. Information from Sensor Tower differs significantly from the data itself Nintendo: the company says that the free version of the game downloaded 40 million people in four days.
It is unclear how many of those 40 (or 25) million decided to buy the full version of Super Mario Run, which costs $ 10 or $ 749 in the ruble equivalent. Investors of Nintendo are not too appreciated this approach, as the users themselves: now the average game rating is 2.5 out of 5 stars based on almost 5 thousand reviews.
“We can only imagine how it would improve the conversion, if the full cost of the game was $ 10, and dollar 2.99 or even $ 4.99. The current price tag is not justified”, — analysts say.
If you haven’t tried Super Mario Run, this game can be downloaded for free — join the millions of users. And here to buy the full version or not — you decide.
