Today at its September 7 media event, Apple announced a new Mario game is coming to iOS, called “Super Mario Run.” In the game Mario runs automatically to the right, and users can tap to make Mario jump.
As the game progresses, it will introduce blocks that change Mario’s direction and other more intense obstacles, while allowing users to play the game one-handed. There is also a battle mode called “Toad Rally,” which lets users compete against the ‘ghosts’ of friends and strangers around the world.
Details about the price were not yet revealed, but Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that the game would be free-to-play, and come with a one-time, set price point. The game is expected to launch sometime this holiday season, and Nintendo is also launching a Super Mario sticker pack for iOS 10.
