Nintendo's upcoming Super Mario Run mobile game for iPhone and iPad now has both an official release date and an official price tag. Apple brought in Nintendo's Shigeru Minamoto on stage earlier this year during the iPhone event in September to officially unveil the upcoming game for iPhone and iPad, which is an iOS-exclusive to start. During the time, people were assuming the game to be launched in December and be a free-to-try with an in-app purchase to be able to fully unlock the full version. Now, we have solid details for both the price and the release date.

Official release date and price

Nintendo has officially announced today that the very first official Mario game for iOS will be released this coming December 15th, along with an in-app purchase of $9.99/10, which will unlock the full version of the game. Nintendo has been experimenting some unique apps for iOS before like Miitomo, but Super Mario Run will mark its first official release on Apple's platform. And as expected, more games are to follow in the future.

Promotions for the game is running wild

To hype the game, even more, the App Store has already held a spot for the game way ahead of its official release since September, where users can sign up to be notified when it finally launches. Nintendo has also made an iOS10 Messages sticker pack to promote the game even further.

Official Price breakdown

The first-ever mobile game which will be featuring the most iconic video game hero of all time will officially go on sale for iPhone and iPad on December 15, 2016, in U.S. time zones. When released, anyone can download Super Mario Run the App Store at no cost, where players can try elements of the game's three modes absolutely FREE. However, once the game has been downloaded, a one-time payment of $10, U.S price, will grant access to the full version of the game.

Super Mario will finally Run on mobile devices

"The wait is almost over! A Super Mario game will finally be played on mobile devices," said Doug Bowser, Nintendo America's Senior VP of Sales and Marketing. "Developed under the direction of original Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run will bring a whole new take on the series' beloved action-platforming gameplay to the iPhone and iPad for the very first time."

Super Mario will be available in 151 countries

Super Mario Run will be compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS8.0 to the latest iOS 10. Starting on December 15, the game will officially launch in 151 countries and regions. Super Mario Run will support English, German, Japanese, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Dutch, Russian and traditional Chinese language options.

Super Mario Run will be the first Super Mario Bros. game developed intended for mobile devices. In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a single finger to avoid enemies, jump over obstacles, pull off stylish moves, and of course, collect coins and reach the flagpole to complete courses.
