Last week, Nintendo announced that they will be releasing their first mobile Mario game on Apple iOS. Super Mario Run, an automatic runner game, (similar to the excellent Rayman Adventures) will be available in December 2016. In the game, Mario moves to the right. Your device must be held Vertically. Tapping the screen will make Mario Jump over obstacles and on enemies. You will also be able to play this game one-handed.
Ever since I got my hands on my first Samsung S3 (which I still have!) and later on my first iPhone, I always used to search the app store and the web for Super Mario type games for my Phone. All you get is lousy copies of one of the best games of all time. So finally Nintendo brings one of the best games of all time to iOS, one of the biggest gaming platforms in the world (Nintendo actually stated this during Apples iPhone event).
Super Mario Run will feature 3 modes:-
- Challenging Courses.
- Challenge the play data of other players courses. Try to finish the course with the most style.
- Create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected from the first 2 modes.
More info here on the App Store
There’s also a cool video on Twitter of the creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, playing Super Mario Run with one hand as he eats a Burger.

Being an Avid iOS gamer, I am absolutely excited by this news and can’t wait for December. Pricing should be released later on this year. Oh and Super Mario Run will also be available on Android “at some point in the future” after being released on iOS
