Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run is coming to Google Play on March 23, 2017.

We’d almost forgotten about this one. Nintendo’s first mobile Super Mario game will finally be released on Android devices on March 23. The game comes three months after its initial iOS release and will be available via the Google Play Store. Nintendo have also confirmed that the Android release will be Version 2.0.0 of the game, and the iOS edition will receive an update on the same day.

Super Mario Run caused a bit of a kerfuffle when it was released, with many users baulking at the $9.99/£9.99 unlock price. The game is free to start but current version only includes the first three levels of the game. In Version 2.0.0 players can unlock World 1-4 by completing one of Bowser’s challenges.

Whilst this is probably not enough free content to answer the game’s critics, Super Mario Run is still a recommended purchase. It’s a curious game that is done no favours by being termed an auto-runner, and is better described as an auto-jumper. The game’s World Tour mode has a huge amount of depth if you take the time to learn each course, and attempt to track down its collectibles. However, it’s easy to see why the game might not be to everyone’s taste.

In addition to the World Tour mode, Super Mario Run also includes the Toad Rally competitive multiplayer mode and a Mushroom Kingdom building game.


Download Super Mario Run from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
