    KYOTO, Japan - The first-ever mobile game featuring the most iconic video game hero of all time goes on sale for iPhone and iPad on Dec. 15 in United States time zones. Super Mario Run can be downloaded from the App Store at no cost, and players can try elements of the game’s three modes for free. Once the game has been downloaded, a one-time payment of $9.99 (United States price) will grant unlimited access to each of the three modes in this release.

    “The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run brings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to iPhone and iPad for the first time.”

    Super Mario Run is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later. Starting on Dec. 15, the game will launch in 151 countries and regions. Super Mario Runsupports English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian and traditional Chinese language options.

    Super Mario Run is the first Super Mario Bros.game developed specifically for mobile devices. In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a single finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off stylish moves, collect coins and reach the flagpole to complete courses.

    Finally a proper game than a F2P. I wonder how much auto-platformer this is, and how little auto runner.

    Give it a chance, or at least wait until it is actually released to get sad.

    No, I have iOS. I just feel sad that Nintendo is going down this road.

    Let's just hope they give up then! :P (I'd try this if I had an iPhone.)

    I'll try it. But I sincerely hope this is a one-off to generate hype around Nintendo games in advance of the Switch release and not a long-term strategy.

    Yay! I will only need to buy a 1000$ phone + a crap ton of IAP in order to play a runner game \o/ And people will still buy that rather than a powerfull handled console (the switch) :/

    The intended massive consumer (the market for that game) will buy the $1000 phone anyway and you know it. The game is just an afterthought that happens to work in the phone they already own, and they couldn't care less to carry around a specialised gaming device.

    You don't really know how this would turn out. Rayman games are unexpected good, and Mario could be going down that trend. Just try festa run or jungle run.

    I'm a bit surprised at the steep price tag for a mobile game. But perhaps it will end up being a quality game. Fingers crossed.

    I don't like this, at all. Please don't go to the mobile strategies Nintendo. You're way better than these garbage smartphone 'games'.
