Super Mario Run Gets an 'Easy Mode' in New Update

  • You won't be able to play Animal Crossing on mobile until April at the earliest

Super Mario Run has now been downloaded more than 78m times, Nintendo announced today in its latest financial briefing.

The popular mobile app "Super Mario Run" has brought Nintendo Co. more than US$50 million since it was released for Apple Inc.'s iPhone in December.

This update also claims to have tweaked the Toad Rally mode so that you'll lose fewer Toads when you don't win a match, and you'll earn more Toads when you do win a match. That might not seem like a high amount, but analysts have said that mobile games that charge less for full unlocks get around 3% of players to purchase the full game. The game is expected to make its Android debut sometime in March. The second mode has you challenge the play data of other players to show who can beat a course with the most style to impress Toads into joining you. But although it hit 78 million since its December 15 release on the iPhone previous year, only 5 percent of players paid the $10/£8/AU$15 to unlock the full game, Bloomberg reported. Nintendo made six billion yen ($53/£42/AU$70 million) from Super Mario Run, but that number could have doubled if it hit its target.

Fire Emblem Heroes is still on track for February 2.
