Speaking with Japan’s Nikkei, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima revealed that Super Mario Run did not meet the company’s expectations. Though profitable, it didn’t hit its sales targets. There are a number of reasons why only five percent of Super Mario Run‘s users purchased the full game. The main one was its steep pricewall. Users can play three levels for free. If they want to unlock the rest of the levels, they have to fork over $10. Given how most mobile games rarely cost more than $5, $10 no doubt discourage many from purchasing the full thing.

Though certain modes in the game require an online connection to work, most of the game is single player. It was difficult to play the game anywhere that didn’t have a WiFi connection, making it decidedly less mobile friendly. Despite Super Mario Run not meeting sales expectations, Nintendo plans to continue that game’s pay model for future releases.
