Mobile As 2019 Most Downloaded Free iPhone Game

Apple has revealed the best selling paid games and most downloaded free games on iPhone and iPad in 2019, and despite being released so late in the year Mario Kart Tour resulted the top free iPhone game. 

The Cupertino company has not shared detailed figures, but we do know that Call of Duty: Mobile, one of the strongest runner ups in the free games category, has been downloaded more than 100 million times in its first week alone. This further states how much successful Mario Kart Tour has been thus far.

          Nintendo has managed to build a quite profitable mobile business, despite sparking controversy when it came to monetize that strong amount of downloads. Mario Kart Tour was particularly debated as it was the first game from the Japanese developer to feature a paid monthly subscription.

          Talking about monetization, Nintendo’s Shuntaro Furukawa has mentioned in an interview earlier this year that the company plans on how to make its products profitable on smartphone and tablet “on an app basis”, which means that it has not a fixed schedule when it comes to how manage this delicate matter.
