I first saw the news on Facebook via Gamepsot. Super Mario Run is coming to smartphones everywhere. Expected to be released in December, Nintendo is banking on making bank with the new game. From the game play shown online, it will be similar to Temple Run, Sonic Blast, and games like that. Lots of forward momentum, lots of collecting all the coins, and lots of death. Trust me, I die all the time in games like this.
The creator of the app Shigeru Miyomoto is quoted in the video going around the internet as saying it has “more depth than you might suspect.” As a fan of the old school Mario games from my childhood, I for one, am super stoked about this development. Come December, I know what I’ll be playing! Goodbye Bejeweled and Hello Super Mario Run!
