20 million of users have already “reserved” Super Mario Run, the game that Nintendo announced during the Apple Event that took place last September.
One of the major announcements in the keynote of Apple was Super Mario Run, which has already reached 20 million users waiting for its release. Super Mario Run will debut in December in the iOS system, coming later to Android.
Super Mario Run could surpass the success of Pokémon Go because of the figures revealed in the latest collaboration between Nintendo and Apple. And it is that Apple announced in its keynote an upcoming release of this game in the App Store at the end of the year, so it is not yet available for download.
When the game was presented at the conference of Apple, the company of the Apple activated some functions in iTunes. In this way, users interested in Super Mario Run, will receive a notification when the game will be available.
According to Apple CEO, Tim Cook, about 20 million users have requested this notification to play the Nintendo game.
On the other hand, it seems that the Cook himself had visited the headquarters of the Japanese company for an hour. The executive also met with the president of Nintendo, Tatsumi Kimishima.
As you can see, Apple could have hit the mark again with another marketing strategy and collaboration with other companies. We’ll see if the potential success in numbers we see today is finally translated into a real success when this game will be finally released.
