Nintendo have announced that Super Mario Run for iPhone and iPad will launch next month, December 15th.
Super Mario Run can be downloaded from the App Store at no cost, and players can try “elements of the game” for free. From there – should players choose – a one-time payment of £7.99/$9.99 will unlock the full game, granting 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 – and also the mostly aptly named employee ever.
“Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run brings 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 December 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.
