Super Mario Run, mobile games

Super Mario Run to hit Android on 23 March

Nintendo has already released two mobile games, in the form of Fire Emblem Heroes and Super Mario Run. Of course, the former is available on Android and iOS, while the latter has been iOS-only for a long time.

Fortunately, that exclusivity ends this week as Nintendo announced that Super Mario Run is set to hit Android on 23 March (Thursday).

People have been able to pre-register for the title for a while now, allowing gamers to receive a notification when it’s actually out.

News of an Android release comes roughly three months after the title was released on iOS. The game was originally revealed at Apple’s iPhone 7 event in September, with Nintendo legend and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto presenting the game on-stage. It was then released in December 2016.

As for pricing? We’re expecting the Android version to follow the same formula as the iOS release, giving us a few levels as a taster before paying roughly US$10 to unlock everything.
