    I'm honestly surprised for that release of Dr. Mario. Especially with a partnership with LINE.

    That said, not being my favorite puzzle game, I'll sadly pass this one, and still wait for Mario Kart Tour.

    Like the other Nintendo games, it will probably not work without an active internet connection or if you have root, xposed, privacy guard or anything else installed that prevents them from getting full access to your phone. They own the hardware stack for the Switch, DS, etc., but it is not ok for them to own my phone. It's not a game console, it's a multi-function portable computer, and I use it for far to many things to sacrifice it all to play some dumbed down version of Mario.

    If Steam refused to run if you had any accounts with admin access on Windows it would have flopped, but when it comes to phones, people just let companies walk all over us. There are a lot more of us than Nintendo thinks, but since we don't share our data they don't know that. Remember when Pokemon Go stopped being popular? It was exactly when they banned people with root, which didn't even stop cheating since there were still ways to spoof GPS. Remember how Mario Run didn't meet expectations? Maybe piracy would have had less of an impact than, you know, not letting people who want your games actually be able to BUY THEM!

    Great we will see dull Mario insert activity games.

    Hey Nintendo as mobile market is new to you, how about make something new and not your same old recycled shit.

    Who even calls Nintendo innovative when its games is the same shit recycled.

    And yes it's as bad as fifa, cod, assassins creed other than these minus fifa have a completely different story, it's only its genre that's the same.

    It's subjective, but I don't care for either so I'm just conflating them :P.

    While XPosed Edge was always rather simple to use.. Magisk seems to be annoying.

    Does this *method* really work with most root checks ? Most root cloaks I've tried sofar seemed worthless...

    It works with all of them save Samsung KNOX as far as I can tell. And it's pretty simple to use, install it like any other root and enable a few options for hiding root.

    They seem to be doing fine. I expect Mario Kart Tour will be quite popular.
