Super Mario Run Coming To Android This March 23
The gaming app, Super Mario Run which was originally released for iOS devices exclusively back in December 15, 2016 and accumulated around 78 million downloads by Nintendo's latest count is said to be coming to Android devices next week. Specifically, the gaming app will be launched on March 23.
Nintendo Announces The Specific Date
According to an article at Games Spot, Nintendo has confirmed last January that the Super Mario Run would arrive for Android in March. However, the company did not give any specific date - that is until just recently via a post on Twitter last March 18, 2017.
The game itself will be available for download at Google Play Store and arrive with the version 2.0.0 update. Users are also able to pre-register for the game, which will allow them to know instantaneously when it is available for download.
Though the Super Mario Run is free for download and comes with a sampling of levels, players will need to pay $9.99 to unlock every course in the game. In fact, Nintendo mentions that five percent of the game's players have paid to buy all the courses, which means that the game has brought in many millions of dollars in revenue so far.
As for the reason as to why the game comes with a price, Nintendo stated that the pricing was designed to reassure parents that they would be charged just one, not multiple times. Furthermore, the company also hopes to maximize the number of people who interact with the characters on mobile, to bridge them to console gaming and to create synergies.
