Ending the year on a high note
Not long after Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima revealed plans for the possible release of two to three smartphone games a year after 2017, the announcement of another milestone for Nintendo’s newest mobile game was reported via Super Mario Run’s Japanese Twitter account:
“Super Mario Run in celebration of 50 million downloads worldwide, we have a gift of 10 “Rally Tickets” from Kinopio Rally. I’d like to thank you for supporting Super Mario Run” #SuperMarioRun”
Super Mario Run has been a success by every possible measure, but shareholers are still skeptical about its $9.99 price tag, as they are more in favor of a Free-to-Play format with micro transactions.
Congratulations to Nintendo and Super Mario Run on its continued success as they close out the year on a high note. Next year plans to be a big year for Nintendo, with the relesae of mobile offerings of Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, as well as the Nintendo Switch console.
