Super Mario Run just landed on the Google Play Store 1 day early from its official release date. The runner game was supposed to live on the Play Store on 23rd of March but Nintendo surprised the fans with an early release.
Super Mario Run was released on iOS 3 months ago and remained exclusive to Apple until now. The game went on to become the number 1 game on Apple charts with over 78 million downloads in early January.
The game surprised critics with its performance especially because it was priced at a hefty $10 on the Appstore. Most games are available for $1-$5 while bigger and premium games are usually under $10.
Surprisingly, even with the price tag being so high, about 5% of people from that 78 million downloads purchased the game bringing in $53 in revenue for Nintendo.
Nintendo is following the same price policy for the game on Android. You can download the game for free, but to play beyond world 1-4, you are required to pay a one-time fee of $10 (about RS 1,048).
Nintendo has also released an update for the game on iOS as well. Players are now able to play worlds beyond 1-4 if they complete Bowser’s challenges for free. You’ll also get new characters to play starting today along tons of minor changes.
