Sensor Tower 123.9 million unique downloads across the App Store and Google Play during its first month. This makes it the most successful mobile game in Nintendo's. Super Mario Run saw 21.8 million downloads during its first month, followed closely by Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp at 19.1 million.
Mario Kart Tour has generated $ 37.4 million in player spending so far. This makes Mario Kart Tour the second most successful mobile game for Nintendo, trailing the $ 67.6 million grossed by Fire Emblem Heroes during its first month.
This comes out to an average of $ 0.26 spent per player:
Mario Kart Tour is a small improvement over Dr. Marie Kart Tour. Mario World’s $ 0.19 per player, while Dragalia Lost’s impressive $ 16.50 per player.
While Mario Kart Tour has been successful for Nintendo, Pokémon GO still has a clear lead. Niantic's game was downloaded 163 million downloads during the first 30 days – and it was limited to three countries at launch, compared to Mario Kart Tour's global launch.
