Super Mario Odyssey sold 511625 units within first three days in Japan

Each month has essentially brought a high-quality release to the new system after its launch back in March from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, to Splatoon 2. Even with the shortages that followed nearly immediately after its release, Nintendo managed to sell more than 2 million units within a month of release. Overseas downloads of the game make up more than 90 percent of the total and that includes countries and regions that Nintendo has previously not been able to reach with their gaming consoles, Kimishima says. That not only means IPs we haven't seen in years, but also potentially another Mario adventure. And with the holiday season fast approaching, Nintendo is set to sell a whole bunch more. Even ignoring those pieces, Super Mario Run seems to have received a more lukewarm reception than Fire Emblem Heroes did, possibly because of the mechanics of the former versus the latter. None of this has been lost on Nintendo.

'Super Mario Run' follows a free to start policy.

Super Mario Odyssey might be a runaway hit for Nintendo on its Switch platform, but its mobile game Super Mario Run hasn't been as big of a success.

Considering that a huge number of mobile games are now free-to-play, it's easy to see why having an obvious up-front cost would make a game less popular than freebie alternatives. Super Mario Galaxy 3, please. Nintendo suddenly finds itself in a good place. It's incredibly popular, with over 200 million downloads, but "we have not yet reached an acceptable profit point", for the game, said Tatsumi Kimishima, president of Nintendo, in a briefing about the company's financial results. Nintendo also bumped up its revenue forecast from 750 billion yen (~$6.6 billion) to 960 billion yen (~$8.5 billion).
