The company officially announced today that the first official Mario game for iOS will be released on December 15, 2016. As reported by 9to5Mac, Nintendo has experimented with unique apps for iOS before like Miitomo, but Super Mario Run will mark the first significant release on Apple’s platform. More games are expected to follow in the future.
The Oficial Price
Super Mario Run can be downloaded from the App Store at no cost, and players can try elements of the game's three modes for free. Once the game has been downloaded, a one-time payment of $9.99 (United States price) will grant unlimited access to each of the three modes in this release. That cost is also equal to £7.99 and AU$14.99.
According to Quart, the Super Mario Run game is coming to a total of 151 countries and regions. will be available in English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and traditional Chinese.
The game is a little bit different than the previous Mario games. Instead of being able to take your time collecting coins on every run, crushing blocks and going down large green pipes to secret areas, Mario never stops moving, and you need to rush to complete the level before time runs out.
