Super Mario Run is an upcoming mobile game from Nintendo, featuring characters and familiar game elements from the insanely popular Super Mario Bros. franchise. The game was a surprise announcement at the recent Apple presentation for the new iPhone 7. Super Mario Run will launch exclusively on iOS 10 and follow soon after on Android.
Nintendo has long said that they would stay away from Android and iOS, preferring to make games available on their own hardware. But they relented with the Pokémon franchise, and allowed Niantic to use the IP to create the wildly successful Pokémon Go game this Summer. It’s bringing in the big bucks. So why not go for it this holiday season? The Verge has more thoughts from Super Mario creator Miyamoto on why Nintendo is moving to mobile.
