Inspired by Floppy Bird and its ilk, Nintendo has a new spinoff series Super Mario Bros which first appear on iOS.
UPDATE: Nintendo has posted its website dedicated to Super Mario Run , where we learn that the iOS game will be released in December, and it can be downloaded for free. It was also mentioned that “additional content can also be bought,” and a Nintendo Canada spokesman brought us some details about it.
In short, Super Mario Run will look like a demo, and users will have to pay once X amount to get the full game. It is therefore still no question of imposing players purchasing levels to play through micro transactions.
Yes, you read correctly. Nintendo unveiled a new game for ions at the Apple event. It is none other than Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario’s father, who took the stage to make the announcement. His title? Super Mario Run . The game is presented as an equivalent of the latest New Super Mario Bros.appeared on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. However, mobile market forces, Nintendo has added an important nuance.
“For the first time, you can play Mario with one hand.”
As the name suggests, the player is a Mario that runs consistently to the right – and borrowing gameplay that we have seen in several independent games, including Canabaltin 2009, and more recently Flappy Bird . Users simply tap the screen to go through the level, avoiding traps and obstacles, and grabbing coins along the way.
“For the first time, you can play Mario with one hand,” said Miyamoto. “This means that you can play while holding the post of the subway, eating a hamburger or an apple crisp.” Super Mario Run includes a competitive mode called Toad Rally. “Now, in this battle mode , you can compete not only with friends but for the first time with anyone around the world.” In this mode, the player must earn more points than his rival, crossing the level more quickly, amassing more points, and impressive Toad – the judge – by his flips and stunts.
“We want players of all ages can have fun with Super Mario Run ,” concluded Miyamoto. “For this reason, we will start the game at a fixed price,” confirming that there will be no micro transaction (see Update above for more details).
