Overall downloads for the first day according to various estimates ranged from 5 to 10 million more than the previous record holders Pokémon GO and Clash Royale.
Really need to consider a few things. The release of Super Mario Run unlike Pokémon GO was one-time in 150 regions. Second, the App Store is promoting the project more aggressive than Pokémon GO, Royal Clash and any other game in its first week of release. Game in the Apple app store took just five main banners at the main page.

And other interesting statistics worth noting that iPad users spend in game much more time than iPhone owners. On average one game session takes about 5 minutes.
Super Mario Run became available for download December 15. The game can be downloaded free of charge, but fans of “freebies” can only count on a few introductory levels. After that, the developers will be asked to pay an impressive $10, or 750 rubles. The latter fact has disappointed investors, who had arranged the sale of Nintendo stock. The main reason for the pessimism is too high, according to experts, the cost of the game.
“To claim $10 per game is too much, especially in the era of freemium mobile games. The first three levels are too short, and the game does not specify what will get the user $10,” — said an analyst at research company Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad.
Shares of Nintendo are getting cheaper after the release of the Super Mario games Run for mobile Apple devices.
