Dr. Mario World surpasses five million downloads in its first week
Sensor Tower has an update on the performance of Dr. Mario World. In its first week, the mobile game has surpassed five million downloads.
Comparing that to other Nintendo mobile releases, it places fourth in launch downloads. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was the best at 14.8 million players. Dr. Mario World secured roughly 60 percent of the first week downloads of both Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes. However, it was significantly ahead of Dragalia Lost, which was downloaded about 860,000 times in the five markets where it debuted.
Dr. Mario World has only earned $500,000 from players thus far, but it stacks up well against other games in the puzzle genre. While it grossed roughly $325 million last year, Toon Blast earned only $90,000 in its first week. Also, Candy Crush Friends Saga brought in just $170,000 more than Dr. Mario World in its first seven days with much more marketing than Dr. Mario World.
