Mario Kart Tour Becomes Nintendo's Fastest Mobile Game Launch

90 million downloads in first week makes Mario Kart Tour Nintendo's fastest mobile game launch by far. However, how does Mario Kart Tour make such a great success? Except their helpful app store optimization, what more elements also played an important role? Apprb.com will reveal these details for you today!

For your information, the number of Mario Kart Tour downloads is six times greater than the company's second best launch, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, which generated 14.3 million downloads in its first week.
