Super Mario Run is hosting an event based around Friendly Run, which will let players earn Rally Tickets. The event will run until January 11. While this normally is more of a practice mode, participating during the event period will earn Rally Tickets, whether you win or lose. Friendly Run can still only be played a limited number of times a day, and it requires at least one friend on your friend list.

Bloomberg reports, based on data from App Annie, that Super Mario Run is no longer the highest-grossing iOS app in any country as of December 24. That’s a big turnaround from the previous week, when it was the most profitable app in 49 territories.

It’s not all bad news for Super Mario Run, however. While it’s dipped from 138 countries on December 17 as the top free download, it remains at that spot in 88 nations.

Super Mario Run features a very different pricing structure from another Nintendo-related mobile title, Pokemon GO. Niantic’s game is entirely free-to-play, though Super Mario Run requires a $10 purchase to experience a majority of the game. Apptopia believes that a lower price point would give Nintendo $50 million in revenue this month as opposed to $30 million as things stand now.

Kyoto Shimbun published a new article about Nintendo’s mobile plans yesterday, which included comments from president Tatsumi Kimishima. Sankei has now followed up with its own report.

Kimishima previously mentioned to Kyoto Shimbun that the company was looking at two or three mobile titles each year starting in 2017. However, Sankei has a different quote from him in which he says that Nintendo is always considering pushing out three, and maybe even more than that per year.
