Super Mario Run has been downloaded nearly 150 million times. Fire Emblem Heroes’ downloads are less than a tenth of that, but the two games have an inverse relationship with revenue. According to Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima, Fire Emblem Heroes is earning more revenue than Super Mario Run.


Speculation about Nintendo bringing out a SNES Mini emerged last week. The Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki was able to ask president Tatsumi Kimishima about the rumor at the company’s financial results briefing today, though unsurprisingly, he didn’t say much. Kimishima simply said that he has nothing to talk about now.


Super Mario Run has been downloaded almost 150 million times, Nintendo has confirmed. That number applies to downloads across iOS and Android.

Super Mario Run accumulated 78 million downloads by the end of January. The game launched on Android last month, so that likely gave it a shot in the arm. 


Genyo Takeda has been working at Nintendo since the early 1970s. Sadly, his time with the company is coming to an end. A document included with Nintendo’s latest financial results confirms that he’s retiring.

Takeda was most recently assigned the role of Representative Director and “Technology Fellow” in 2015. He has largely worked on the hardware side of things at Nintendo, but was the director and producer of several titles such as Punch-Out!! and Pilotwings 64.

Ko Shiota should be taking over Takeda’s role. This should all be made official following the 77th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on June 29.
