Video game news round-up: Legend of Zelda delay, Sombra arrives in Overwatch and Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run has been successful in its initial campaign achieving milestones left and right. Meanwhile, the game's Android version is coming near and Nintendo is ready to lay the red carpet for fans of the game on Google's mobile operating system. Furthermore, Nintendo will also release an update to the iOS version of Super Mario Run, which features more playable characters. However, the company has not yet revealed the details regarding who's coming in the game.

According to Game Rant, Super Mario Run currently feature characters such as Luigi, Yoshi, Princess Peach, Toadette, Toad and of course, the game's main character, Mario. With the current roster featuring the good guys of the franchise, it is possible that Nintendo will bring the "other guys" of Mario World. The primary examples of these "other" guys are Wario and Walugi. The Koopalings are also possible to be a playable character to spice things up a bit. However, there's nothing more than just speculations at this point.

On the other hand, Super Mario Run will officially launch on Android devices this coming Thursday along with the 2.0.0 patch on the iOS version. The update will unlock the World 1-4 after players complete one of Bowser's tasks in the free version. It would be great news for players who are still unable to purchase the full version of the game.

Before the game's Android release, Super Mario Run is enjoying an incredible success on iOS platforms. The report said that the game managed to generate $14 million in its first three days of release on the said Apple platform. Furthermore, it only accounts for the five percent of players who spent the money buying the full version. As expected, the game's profit will continue to grow when it officially arrives on Google's mobile platform.

Overall, it would be interesting enough to see how Super Mario Run keeps its momentum moving forward. Perhaps, Nintendo would offer more incentives for players who decide to jump from free version to the paid one.

Super Mario Run's Android release is scheduled on March 23.
