Nintendo wants games that push mobile players to their consoles, and it seems like they think they'll find that success with games like Super Mario Run.
Super Mario Run is a traditional pay-once-and-it's-yours type of game. FEH, in particular, already pulled in $5 million in revenue back in February, taking full advantage of its arguably exploitative randomizer-based Gacha model and a deceptively massive Fire Emblem fanbase (why won't you give me Lucina, Nintendo?!). "We honestly prefer the Super Mario Run model", a spokesperson is quoted as saying.
According to Nikkei, the former approach meant that Super Mario Run didn't meet Nintendo's lofty sales expectations. The download is still free that needs a one time in-app purchase of $10 to unlock the levels beyond worlds 1-4.

We probably did a couple of things wrong in Bangalore where we could have wrapped up there series or had a two-nil lead. It is only befitting of the way this series has been played that it will be decided in the last Test", he said.
The App Store description revealed that the update to version 2.0 on iOS is that Nintendo has made more parts of the game free to play.
Super Mario Run gets an earlier release date on Android as the game is now available on Google's popular platform. $9.99 unlocks everything. Still, it's an auto-runner, and that price is a tall order for the genre. "A senior company official told Nikkei, "[Fire Emblem] Heroes is an outlier. It'll stay to be perceived how the most recent update will pack only after it is released, however, Nintendo is without a doubt expecting to grab the attention of millions of users across the world to download the game. 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.
Meanwhile, Fire Emblem Heroes, with its traditional mobile freemium pricing structure requiring players to buy additional playable characters has been very profitable.
