(NEWS). WOW!! Super Mario Run downloaded 78 million times, full game paid by about 4 million
Super Mario Run has been downloaded 78 million times, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima revealed today. The news was shared during the company’s financial results briefing. Kimishima also said that more than 5 percent of those who downloaded Super Mario Run paid for full version, or roughly four million.
The Super Mario games follow Mario's adventures in the fictional Mushroom Kingdom, usually with Mario as the player character. He is usually joined by his brother, Luigi, and occasionally by other members of the Mario cast. As in platform video games, the player runs and jumps across platforms and atop enemies in themed levels.
The games have simple plots, typically with Mario rescuing the kidnapped Princess Peach from the primary antagonist, Bowser. The first title in the series, Super Mario Bros., released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1985, established gameplay concepts and elements prevalent in nearly every Super Mario game since. These include a multitude of power-ups and items that give Mario special magic powers such as fireball-throwing and size-changing into giant and miniature sizes.
