Nintendo’s Mario Kart Tour has achieved 90 million downloads in its first week, according to new data from SensorTower.
A new report from mobile analytics company SensorTower indicates that Mario Kart Tour is Nintendo fastest-performing mobile title. The game has easily surpassed Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Super Mario Run with an eye-watering 90 million first-week downloads.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was the previous top performer, achieving 14.3 million downloads in its first week.
The data comes from SensorTower’s Store Intelligence product, which uses and a mixture of algorithms and data points to generate download and revenue estimates.
Surprisingly, Mario Kart Tour is not top of the podium for player spending. Despite its controversial $5 monthly pass, the game has generated $12.7 million in revenue so far. This puts it behind Super Mario Run – which managed $16.1 million with its equally controversial premium price point – and the free-to-play tactical RPG Fire Emblem Heroes, which earned $28.2 million through its Gacha mechanics.
SensorTower’s analysis also reports that despite the game being downloaded to more Android devices, iOS users have provided 75 per cent of its revenue.
Whatever your views on the game, it’s certainly doing better than Nintendo’s other recent mobile release, the disappointing Dr Mario World. Mario Kart Tour is available now via Google Play and the Apple App Store.
