Officially, Super Mario Run is the first game ever that Nintendo specifically developed to be played in mobile devices. But just recently, the app has achieved a new milestone -- becoming the fastest selling mobile game ever in the history of iOS. Super Mario Run accomplished this by managing to hit 40 million downloads in its first four days since wide release, as revealed as much by a press statement published by Nintendo.
