Great start. Just 2 questions remain.
Will there be a drop off or will it rise/sustain in the upcoming weeks.
How many people will actually pay $10?

It'll definitely drop off quickly (cuz app store fads), but great start.



Pokémon Go didn't have a worldwide release or a subscription program though. I don't know why people keep comparing both games anyway.



Proves me right again. I said Nintendo were crazy avoiding iOS and android for so long and I was proved right. They've a massive audience there and big bucks to be made.

This launch is just iOS I believe? Will do very well whenever the android release happens. When is it?

"Biggest launch on history of App Store" sure sounds like a great start.

I agree. Just copy+paste from gaf. Lol



Is that WW or just US? Can't check the source because OP doesn't know how links work.

Yeah you tell em!  http://www.theverge.com/2016/12/16/13982844/super-mario-run-first-day-downloads



So it's world wide. That's 3m free downloads of the supposedly biggest icon in gaming on a 1 billion unit install base.

Hooray?
