Super Mario Run storms the charts with 40 million downloads in 4 days

Despite running into some bad press, Super Mario Run has so far stacked an impressive amount of downloads, cruising through the 40 million mark in just four days.

Nintendo revealed the accomplishment in a new press release issued earlier today. In addition to topping the “free” chart of the App Store in 140 different global markets (out of the 150 where it’s available), the game also made it into the top 10 best grossing games in 100 different markets.

By comparison, smash-hit augmented reality title Pokémon Go reached the 25 million milestone 11 days after its initial launch – which is almost a week more than Super Mario Run needed. However, unlike the new Mario game, Pokémon Go was available only in limited locations.

Given that earlier reports speculated Super Mario Run trumped Pokémon Go as far as first day downloads go, it’s hardly surprising Nintendo’s new game continues to shatter records.

Among other things, Nintendo revealed it has plans to make it easier for players to access all modes after purchasing the game.

Despite previous reports suggesting the Japanese giant has no intentions to add new features to the game, today Nintendo also rolled out an update that adds a new mode allowing users to compete with friends without paying any Rally Tickets.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Cheers!
