Apart from the exceptional success of Mario Kart, there aren’t many surprises. The rankings of the free titles are full of titles of big names like Call of Duty, as usual, while Minecraft continues to dominate the space of mobile games for a fee. With the exception of Stardew Valley, the indie games premium are generally absent from the charts for a fee.

The news represent a kind of change for Nintendo. The company has made a big leap with the launch of Super Mario Run in 2016, but a year after the company declared that, despite 200 million downloads, the game had not reached a “point of profit” acceptable”. Since then, the company Kyoto has shifted to mechanical the most aggressive and free-to-play with titles such as Fire Emblem, Dragalia Lost and Animal Crossing, culminating in the success of the Mario Kart Tour this year.
