Select Game Content Available for Free; One-Time $9.99 Purchase Opens Full Game

The first-ever mobile game featuring the most iconic video game hero of all time goes on sale for iPhone and iPad on Dec. 15 in United States time zones. 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.

“The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Runbrings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to iPhone and iPad for the first time.”

Super Mario Run is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later. Starting on Dec. 15, the game will launch in 151 countries and regions. Super Mario Run supports English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian and traditional Chinese language options.

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

Fangirl Thoughts: This game sounds a lot like Temple Run but within the Mario World. Frankly I loved Temple Run so I am interested to play this game and see how well Mario translates in the mobile world. I think it is a good first approach and I am sure it will be a success. Nintendo is taking its time and being smart as it moves which we can see with the success of Pokemon Go (they own a third of the Pokemon Franchise) and the amazing release of NES Classic. I believe they may have another success on thier hands with Super Mario Run.  It visually looks great and the operating systems and power of the phones today can support it. What do you think about the game?
