Just one month to go.
Nintendo recently dropped a trailer and new info on their upcoming mobile title, Super Mario Run. The game is set to release on December for iOS devices in 151 countries and regions. It is being made by an experienced team of developers, including the director Takashi Tezuka, who worked with Shigeru Miyamoto on the original 1985 classic Super Mario Bros.
Apparently, the first part of the game is free to download on any iPad, iPhone, or iTouch devices that run iOS 8.0 or any later versions. Once you try out the game’s three modes, you have the option to purchase the full version for $9.99.
You can check out the new trailer for Super Mario Run, which was uploaded today:
The game plays like you would expect from a modern Mario game, except with a few gameplay changes that come from being on a mobile device. Super Mario Run is an auto-runner, which you can play with one hand. Just tap the screen to make Mario jump while the level auto-scrolls. Do a quick tap to make the plumber hop and a long tap to make him jump higher.
If you don’t own an apple device, you may still be able to play it for yourself in the future. Nintendo has stated that it intends to put Super Mario Run on Android devices, too. They also stated that they plan to make Super Mario Run as popular as Pokemon GO. With the widespread popularity that the Mario franchise possesses, it may not be too hard to do.
