Super Mario Run Android Version Gets An Early Release; Details Here

Super Mario Run Android Version Gets An Early Release; Details Here

The iOS users experienced the Super Mario Run on their iOS platform devices.

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima says that "Super Mario Run" revenues didn't meet their expectations.

Nintendo did offer the game's first few levels to players for free in order to get them to pay up for the full game, but not only did they then ask people to pay $10 up front to play the rest, but it seems most players didn't. Ahead of the game's release, it was reported that Nintendo was eyeing a pay-once model so that parents could download Super Mario Run for their kids without the added anxiety of in-app purchases appearing later in their iTunes purchase history. There are no micro-transactions.

The goal of Nintendo mobile game, states Kimishima, that it is not only to generate revenue, but also to introduce the characters and brand to a wider fanbase that usually does not play video games. Super Mario Run launched on iOS made huge earning over $50 million as of now. When asked about the success of Fire Emblem Heroes, a Nintendo spokesperson told Nikkei, "Heroes is an outlier". "We honestly prefer the "Super Mario Run' model".

Could this be a good thing for mobile gaming? Now, expanding the game for Android platform could make more revenue considering the Super Mario fan base. The company confirmed in a January earnings report that mobile-bound Animal Crossing will be coming in the next fiscal year. The company may have released "Fire Emblem Heroes" in February as a freemium game, but that might actually just be a one-off. Nintendo has since released another game, Fire Emblem Heroes which follows a freemium model. Let us know in the comments.
