Nintendo has confirmed that Super Mario Run, its first standalone mobile game, has broken the 150 million downloads-mark.
Available since March on Android, having initially launched for iOS in December 2016, the game is now one of the most popular of all time on both platforms.
While the news will be welcomed by the Japanese gaming giant, there is one major caveat.
Super Mario Run is free to download, but users are required to pay £7.99 in order to access the full game after playing a handful of early levels.
At this point, it’s unclear how many have been willing to stump up for the game.
Initial reactions following the iOS launch suggested iPhone and iPad owners were unhappy at what they saw as a high cost.
As if to reiterate the point, Nintendo said its Fire Emblem Heroes racked up 10 times fewer downloads but made it more money than Super Mario Run.
Nintendo has said it intends to launch more games for iOS and Android later this year.
