Short Bytes: Nintendo has released the Super Mario Run games created after the long time famous character Mario. The game, priced $10, is currently available on the App Store for Apple iPhone and iPad. Super Mario also requires an always-on internet connection to play the game.Keeping up with their announcement made at the Apple iPhone 7 launch event, Nintendo has released the game Super Mario Run for iPhone and iPad on December 15, 2016. The game requires an always-on internet connection, just like Pokemon GO, which recently expanded to countries in South Asia along with a special edition Pikachu.
A mandatory internet connection for playing Super Mario Run is an attempt from Nintendo to keep the pirates out of the picture. However, this may limit the number of places where people can enjoy the game.
The game comes in 10 different languages and it’s released in 150 countries over the world. Nintendo touts the game by saying it can be played using one hand. So, you can enjoy the game while you’re on the subway.
Super Mario Run is free to download from the App Store but it only allows you to play the first three levels for free. After this, a $10 (varies by country) payment has to be made to continue the game.
The gameplay has three modes, Toad Rally, World Tour, and Kingdom Builder. You can choose from a total of six runners including Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, and Toadette.
Nintendo, in the post-2000 years, has underestimated has the potential of the mobile market. The company was picky enough to favor their own hardware to develop games for their franchise characters including Mario. It was only after Pokemon Go, Nintendo tasted the success fruit in the mobile gaming market.
For Android users, Super Mario Run is expected to release sometime in the year 2017.
