Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour released worldwide yesterday for iOS and Android mobile devices, and it became clear pretty early on that the game’s enjoying a solid debut. Now, more data has emerged on the game’s launch day performance, courtesy of Sensor Tower, and it shows figures that Nintendo are sure to be extremely happy with.

The kart racing mobile game has been downloaded approximated 20 million times within the first twenty-four hours of its launch across all Android and iOS devices. That means it’s the most-downloaded game of all titles Nintendo has put out on mobile devices, exceeding Super Mario Run (7 million downloads), Fire Emblem Heroes (1.8 million downloads), Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (1.7 million downloads), Dr. Mario World (650k downloads), and Dragalia Lost (180k downloads). It’s worth noting that at launch, Super Mario Run was available only on iOS devices, while Dragalia Lost was available only in five markets.

Sensor Tower also reports that in terms of player spending in-game, Mario Kart Tour has accrued roughly $1 million in revenue on its launch day, which puts it behind Fire Emblem Heroes (which gathered $4.3 million in revenue at launch) and Super Mario Run in terms of launch day revenue performances. Mario Kart Tour also has a battle pass-style Gold Pass system, which costs $4.99 per month, but since the first two weeks are being offered for free, the game hasn’t recorded any revenue through this avenue yet.

Mario Kart Tour is available now for all iOS and Android devices. The game is in line to receive a multiplayer mode in a future version update.
