Yet [Super Mario Run] was less of a moneymaker for Nintendo than might have been expected, due to the pay-once-and-play model. Nintendo of America announced yesterday that Super Mario Run dropped on the Android app stores. Even when the full version was purchased, Mario Run frustrated players with a requirement for them to be connected to the Internet to play, a weird multiplayer mode that wasn't actually a multiplayer mode, and then an nearly real multiplayer mode that could only be played a certain number of times per day ... for no discernible reason. It made Nintendo less money than they and others had hoped. As iOS users tend to spend more money on games and in-app purchases than those on Android. Many got through the entire campaign very quickly, and unless you try and go for all of the special coins some felt the $10 price tag wasn't worth it.

The more recent Fire Emblem Heroes is a freemium game though, and according to the Nikkei Asian Review it has enjoyed the long-term success that has eluded Super Mario Run. Super Mario Run launched on iOS made huge earning over $50 million as of now. Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima admitted that the game has underperformed. This, combined with a major update to the game is certain to expand the quantity of offers originating from both iOS and Android essentially.
"Heroes is an outlier", a senior Nintendo official told the publication. In Mario's case, not many people apparently ended up playing the game; in Fire Emblem's case, Nintendo is devaluing its own characters by essentially tying them into a monetary gamble.
