Super Mario Run Arrives Dec. 15

...

The wait is almost over: Super Mario Run hits iOS devices on Dec. 15.

Next month, nostalgic players can download the modified game for free, or make a one-time payment of $9.99 for unlimited access to the release.

"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," Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement.

Designed for one-handed play, the game is simple: Mario automatically runs forward, while you make him hurdle enemies and collect coins by tapping. The longer you hold, the higher Mario jumps and the higher your score.

The ultimate goal is to reach the flagpole at the end of the course before time runs out. Three gameplay elements include the traditional World Tour (rescue Princess Peach from Bowser's clutches!), Kingdom Builder (create a unique kingdom), and Toad Rally (compete against other players).

Nintendo's second mobile title is the first to feature the iconic video game hero. Interested fans with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8.0 or later can pre-register online to receive a notification from the iTunes App Store upon release.

Upon release on Dec. 15, Super Mario Run will be available in 151 countries and regions, with support for various language options, including English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and traditional Chinese.

The Japanese tech titan dipped its toe in the mobile gaming waters early this year, with the release of Miitomo. Within a month, the title had racked up more than 2.6 million downloads and attracted about 1 million daily active users. By May, momentum began slowing and user engagement fell to an average 2.3 days per week.

Miitomo has been overshadowed by the launch of the massively popular Pokemon Go by game developer Niantic, not to mention the recent release of the NES Classic Edition and unveiling of Nintendo's upcoming Switch console.
