Smartphone Super Mario game dated.

Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run will launch for iOS on December 15, Nintendo announced.

The game can be downloaded from the App Store at no cost, and players can try elements of the game’s three modes for free. A one-time payment of $9.99 will grant unlimited access to each of the three modes.

In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off moves, collect coins, and reach the flagpole to complete courses.

“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 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. It will launch in 151 countries and regions and support English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and traditional Chinese language options.
