Nintendo has revealed that its Super Mario Run has earned more than most analysts expected: about $53 million. The mobile game has been downloaded more than 78 million times, and more than 5 percent of users have paid $10 to unlock the entire game.

Nintendo’s revenue was down overall, but profits more than doubled year-over-year, partly because of currency fluctuations.
