Super Mario Run was the most downloaded game released in 2017 on Google Play throughout the year.
Google has released its "Best of 2017" categories which rank the top five apps, games, and more in terms of downloads, streams, and so on.
According to the Google blog, Super Mario Run topped the chart, with King's Bubble Witch 3 Saga taking second place. Magic Tiles 3, CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, and Ballz complete the top five.
Interestingly, Google Play's own Best of 2017 store category tells a different story. While Super Mario Run and Bubble Witch 3 Saga took the top two spots, Voodoo's Snake vs Block came third, Playdemic's Golf Clash fourth, and CATS placed fifth.
Super Mario Run cleared 200 million downloads worldwide on iOS and Android earlier in 2017. However, Nintendo stated that the game has "not yet reached an acceptable profit point".
Nintendo and DeNA most recently launched Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on mobile. It secured an estimated 15 million downloads in its first week of release.
