Super Mario Run Update Adds Google Play Achievements

The first significant update to the popular Super Mario Run game is now rolling out to Android players.  The update ups the version to 2.1 and brings several improvements and additions to the game.  For those who haven’t kept up, in the game, you are the ever popular Mario and you are doing what you do best:  Collecting coins and progressing your way through six worlds in the game.  The way gameplay works is that you can only move forward, up or down so no going back to get coins you missed for example.  The object of the game is to collect as many coins as you can before get to the flagpole at the end of the level before time runs out.  Sound familiar? Oh, and yes you still can save Princess Peach and defeat Bowser too.  There are two other game play modes as well to keep you entertained.

With this update, the number of toads (which you collect through Toad Rally playing in the game) has now increased to 99,999.  This should make it limitless for casual players.  You can now also use your customized Mii character as your player icon that you have created in Miitomo.  Finding friends also got easier with this update as you can now find them with your associated Nintendo account in the game.

Super Mario Run Now Live in The Play Store

A day earlier than expected, Super Mario Run is now available to download and install on your Android devices.  The endless runner style game has been exclusive to iOS since it was released in December last year with some 50 million downloads on that platform.  With the release of the game on Android, that’s likely to easily double in just a few weeks time.

Super Mario Run Coming to Android March 23rd

Mario fans, your wait is almost over.  Nintendo has Tweeted that the long awaited Super Mario Run for Android will be released this coming Thursday, March 23rd.  The endless runner style game has been exclusive to iOS since it was released in December last year with some 50 million downloads on that platform.  With the release of the game on Android, that’s likely to easily double in just a few weeks time.

Will this be how Super Mario Run looks on Android?

As far as pricing goes, it is likely that for Android it will follow the same model it has on iOS.  That is, the game and the first three levels are free and to unlock the remaining three levels, you have a one time in-app purchase of $9.99.  This isn’t confirmed but it makes sense that they would keep the pricing structure the same for each platform.

One thing that you need to be aware of with Super Mario Run is that it does require that you have an active Internet connection to play.

To pre-register for the game, head over to the Play Store and sign up.  Once the game is released on the 23rd, you will get notified, can download it and start working your way through the six worlds and 24 levels offered by the unlocked game.

Super Mario Run Now Available for Pre-Registration

Although it is still an exclusive for iOS users, Super Mario Run looks to be coming to Android soon.  In the Google Play Store you will now find a listing for the new game as well as the ability to pre-register for it.  Pre-registering will assure that you get a notification on your phone when the game is available, likely sometime this quarter.  You will then be able to go to the store to purchase it and install it.

As for the game itself, Nintendo describes game play as…

In this game, Mario constantly moves forward through the courses while you use a variety of jumps to navigate. Mario will behave differently depending on the timing of your taps, so it’s up to you to show off particularly smooth moves, gather coins, and reach the goal.

The announcement of the game back in October at an Apple event was one of the highlights for that event and one that got a lot of people excited to see a classic video game, at least in character, come to mobile devices.

Super Mario Run Coming to Android – Eventually

Good news for all you teens of the 80’s (Clinton raises his hand) – Super Mario Run is coming to Android.  When?  Oh who knows but it is coming eventually.

In case you missed it, the side runner game was announced yesterday by Nintendo for iOS and it will be available on that platform later this year.  When exactly isn’t clear but it will for sure be in time for the holiday season.  According to the site Kotaku, Nintendo has confirmed they will be making the game available for Android at some point in the future.

Nintendo tells Kotaku: “We do intend to release the game on Android devices at some point in the future.”

Now when that future is exactly is unclear but it almost certainly will be 2017.
