A new Super Mario app is coming to iOS this year! In a surprise announcement at an Apple event this morning, Shigeru Miyamoto took the stage to show off Super Mario Run.
The continuous runner game will be playable with just one hand. Mario will keep running to the right, and players will need to make him jump at the right time to navigate courses full of obstacles and collect plenty of coins. The game also features an asynchronous multiplayer mode where you can compete against the scores of your friends and players online.
The new app will be offered at a set price. It will release to iOS devices in December 2016. Apple CEO Tim Cook referred to the app as coming to “iOS first” so we can probably expect Super Mario Run to come to Android at some point after its initial launch. Exact pricing and release date has not been revealed yet. Read the full description from the App store below.
A new Mario game you can play with one hand!
At long last, Mario jumps into a new adventure on iPhone and iPad, this time playable using only one hand.
Even if this is your first Mario game, you won’t be able to put it down!
In this game, you constantly move forward through the courses while using a variety of jumps to navigate. Your character will behave differently depending on the timing of your taps, so it’s up to you to show off particularly smooth moves, gather coins, and reach the goal.
Super Mario Run offers three different game modes:
– The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete.
– In the second mode, you challenge the play data of other people’s completed courses. You compete to see who can finish the course with the most style!
– In the third mode, you can create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected by playing the first two game modes.
