All Articles: Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run will be available for all iOS devices on December 15

Nintendo fans are waiting patiently to learn more about the Nintendo Switch, which will be available sometime in March. But today, the consolemaker gave fans an update on their other highly-anticipated upcoming project… Super Mario Run.

Nintendo announced this morning that Super Mario Run will be available to download from the iOS App Store on December 15. The game will be playable on all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices running iOS 8.0 (or later), and players who want to try before they buy can access a free-to-play demo as well. Players looking to get the complete Super Mario Run experience (the main game, the Toad Rally battle mode, and Kingdom Builder) will be able to purchase it for $9.99.

“The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run brings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to iPhone and iPad for the first time.”

Super Mario Run will also be released for Android devices sometime in 2017.

Shigeru Miyamoto shows us his favorite ways to play Super Mario Run in new trailer


When Shigeru Miyamoto stepped onto the stage during last week’s Apple Week, he joked that Super Mario Run could easily be played one-handed, freeing up your other hand to hold onto a subway handle or, more importantly, a tasty hamburger.

Naturally, Nintendo went ahead and actually made a video of Miyamoto playing Super Mario Run while riding a subway, eating a hamburger, and performing other activities…

Never change, Mr. Miyamoto. Super Mario Run will be available to download for the iPhone and iPad this December, with an Android launch planned for 2017.

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.
