Nintendo will bring Super Mario Run to iOS this December

It’s finally happened… Nintendo is bringing a Mario game to the iOS App Store. Unveiled today during Apple’s Special Event today in San Francisco, Super Mario Run will be available to download for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad this December.

Introduced by Shigeru Miyamoto himself, Super Mario Run won’t be free-to-play, but it will include three different game modes. Players will collect Coins and heads for the Flagpole in Super Mario Run’s main “endless runner” mode. But in Toad Rally, they’ll be able to compete against friends in a battle mode to see who can get the highest score by impressing the most Toads. Finally, a third mode will let players create their own Mushroom Kingdom using the Coins they’ve collected in the other two modes.

“We have created Super Mario Run to be perfect for playing on your iPhone,” said Miyamoto. “Super Mario has evolved whenever he has encountered a new platform, and for the first time ever, players will be able to enjoy a full-fledged Super Mario game with just one hand, giving them the freedom to play while riding the subway or my favorite, eating a hamburger.”

Super Mario Run will appear on iOS devices “first,” so we can expect it to be available for Android devices sometime in 2017.
