Super Mario Run is not flying its way across your Android device now. However, it looks like that day is coming sooner rather than later.
Super Mario Run is a side-scrolling auto-running video game. The game characterises one of the few cases where a Mario game has been developed for non-Nintendo hardware, and was part of Nintendo’s efforts to enter the mobile gaming market.
Super Mario Run has launched on iPhone. Mario, will appear on iPhone in the form of an auto-runner game called Super Mario Run. Super Mario Run launched exclusively for iOS devices last month, achieving more than 50 million downloads in its first week of release.
Nintendo is yet to officially confirm a release date for the plumber’s mobile debut, but having the ability to register means; it cannot be too far off.
Those who register interest in the game on the Google Play Store will be notified as soon as it becomes available. While a release date has still yet to be revealed, Nintendo did open up pre-registration for Super Mario Run on the Google Play store late on Wednesday night. Similar to the “Notify” button that appeared on the App Store shortly after the game was announced, the “Pre-register” button on Google Play will give Android owners the chance to find out as soon as the game hits the digital store for their devices.
As for the content of the game, the description on Google Play is virtually identically to the one on the App Store, right down to “paying a set purchase price” for the full game. It will be interesting to see whether the updates will be available for Android on day one.
