Super Mario Run launched for iOS last week, representing Nintendo’s first major push into the mobile market. While unofficial news about the game’s downloads have been circulating, the console giant decided to quell those rumours by releasing its numbers.
In a Japanese press release translated by NeoGAF (as picked up by Gamasutra), Super Mario Run has amassed over 40 million downloads in four days. That number is higher than mobile analytics company App Annie’s previous report of 37 million.
Note that this figure doesn’t reveal how many of those downloads translated into purchases. Super Mario Run can be downloaded from the App Store for free, giving users access to the first three levels. A $15 NZD fee is then required to unlock the full six levels. App Annie’s data suggest that the game pulled in $14 million USD in its first three days.
