Super Mario Run: The iPhone Game You’ve Been Waiting For

The iPhone game to end all iPhone games is almost here. Welcome to Mario’s first-ever foray into mobile territory. Ya-hoo!

December 15, iPhone and iPad users can download Super Mario Run for just $9.99. Word on the street is you can try out some of the game’s elements for free, but come on, guys! You know it’s going to be amazing. I’ll definitely be coughing up the ten bucks up front. Just look at this video!

Here’s some official mumbo-jumbo from Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Doug Bowser (and yes, dude’s name is actually Bowser! Life is that great.):

The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices. 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.

Apple users will need a device with iOS 8.0 or later in order to start stomping goombas. Nintendo hasn’t officially announced an Android release yet; however, the game was referred to as an “iOS-first” game, so I’d say it’s almost a sure thing.

What do you think…are you in?
