Super Mario Runs Drops Off the Top 50 Money Makers List on iOS

Super Mario Runs Drops Off the Top 50 Money Makers List on iOS

Nintendo's first mobile had a decent tail, but it looks like Fire Emblem Heroes was announced at the right time.

According to app store market intelligence firm Sensor Tower, Super Mario Run has fallen out of the Top 50 highest-grossing apps on the Apple App Store. The firm told GamesBeat that app is currently listed at number 52 on the chart.

Super Mario topped the charts when it released back in December 15 for iOS worldwide. The game was an instant success for Nintendo, reaching 50 million downloads before the end of the year. Unfortunately for Nintendo, Super Mario Run is a done-in-one: the app lacks any sort of in-app purchases, so once you've bought it for $10 on the App Store, it's done. Given that, it's not shocking that the game dropped off the chart eventually.

Super Mario Run will continue to make money for Nintendo with its March expansion over to Android. The game will also be free-to-start on the Google Play Store.
