Japan is conquering the world once more! Not in a harsh way but after the release of the worldwide phenomenon Pokemon Go, here comes another Japanese original that will soon capture the inner child in all of us— Super Mario is coming to iPhone and soon to Android!
Shigeru Miyamoto, the Father of Mario, made an appearance at today’s Apple conference to announce Super Mario Run, a free to download gaming app which will be out on December 2016.
Here’s how it looks:
From its official website it says:
In this game, Mario constantly moves forward through the courses while you use a variety of jumps to navigate. Mario 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.
There are three different game modes to play. The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete while collecting coins. The second mode has you challenge the play data of other players to show who can beat a course with the most style to impress Toads into joining you. In the third mode, you get to create your own Mushroom Kingdom using the coins and Toads collected by playing the first two game modes.
One noticeable feature of this game is its portrait orientation which follows designs from Temple Run and Despicable Me: Minion Rush. However, the developer introduced Mario to the mobile community as “a new kind of Mario game that you can play with one hand”.
