Super Mario Run out Dec. 15 for iOS; full game costs $9.99

Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run, the first mobile entry in Nintendo’s flagship game series, will be released Dec. 15 on Apple’s App Store for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later, Nintendo announced Tuesday.

The download is free, and includes access to three modes, but a one-time in-app purchase of $9.99 will open unlimited access to all three modes.

“The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” Doug Bowser (HIS ACTUAL NAME), Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release. “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.”

In Super Mario Run, Nintendo’s iconic hero runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off stylish moves, collect coins and reach the familiar flagpole to complete courses.

The game, which was announced back in September, is promised for Android devices at a later date.
