One of the true surprises at last week’s iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 event was Shigeru Miyamoto announcing that Mario is finally making his way to the App Store with Super Mario Run.
On the run
Landing in December
You can sign up now to be notified when the game arrives.
If you haven’t heard, the game features a one-hand mode with tapping controls that let you control Mario’s jumps, movement, and more.
The goal of the game is to collect as many gold coins as you can before you move on to the next level. It’s not a full-fledged console game, but hey, we definitely don’t have any complaints.
There is also a battle mode, named Toad Rally, where you can try to beat other player high scores. All of the coins that you collect in the game can be used to upgrade the environment.
It will offically hit the App Store in December for both the iPhone and iPad. You can take a look at the game now, and be notified when the game is released. Miyamoto noted last week that the game won’t be a freemium title – thank goodness.
