Super Mario Run for iOS has a release date and price
Nintendo’s upcoming Super Mario Run title for iPhone and iPad now has both a release date and a price tag. Apple brought Nintendo’s Shigeru Minamoto on stage earlier this year at the iPhone event in September to first unveil the upcoming game for iPhone and iPad — an iOS exclusive to start. At the time, we knew the game would launch in December and be free to try with an in-app purchase to fully buy. Now we have solid details for both price and release.
The company officially announced today that the first official Mario game for iOS will be released on one month’s time on December 15th, and an in-app purchase of $9.99 will unlock the full game.
Nintendo has experimented with unique apps for iOS before like Miitomo, but Super Mario Run will mark the first significant release on Apple’s platform. More games are expected to follow in the future.
To hype the game (as if it needed any help), the App Store has held a spot for the game ahead of its release since September where users can sign up to be notified when it launches. Nintendo has also made an iOS 10 Messages sticker pack to promote the title.
