Today’s a big day for Super Mario Run, as Nintendo revealed some statistics about its major mobile game and also released a new update for it.
Nintendo says that Super Mario Run has been downloaded more than 78 million times to date, with more than 5 percent of customers paying $10 to unlock the full game. Super Mario Run has earned Nintendo $53 million in revenue so far.
Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima isn’t totally pleased with the numbers that Super Mario Run has put up so far, as Nintendo was hoping to get at least 10 percent of players to pay. Super Mario Run could get a nice boost in paying players in March, though, when it finally arrives on Android. We’ll just have to wait and see if that boost is enough to push the percentage of paying players above 10 percent.
Meanwhile, current Super Mario Run players on iOS should keep an eye out for a new update to the game that's now rollng out. The most notable addition is Easy Mode, which adds unlimited Bubbles and removes the time limit to make it easier for players to finish levels.
Today’s Super Mario Run update also adds new events, Korean compatibility, and tweaks to Toad Rally that make you lose fewer Toads and make it easier to gather Toads.
