Super Mario Run downloaded nearly three million times in its first day
Update: Bumped to the top. There are some discrepancies in these reports. Business intelligence and analyst firm App Annie says Super Mario Run was downloaded an estimated 3.5 million times in the U.S. alone in its first 14 hours.
Original: Super Mario Run was downloaded on 2.85 million devices in its first day, data from Apptopia reveals. It managed to surpass Pokemon GO, which only had 900,000 downloads during its first 24 hours.
It is important to point out that Pokemon GO had more of a staggered launch whereas Super Mario Run was issued worldwide. Hitting three million downloads is still an impressive feat, however.
