|Shigeru Miyamoto himself announcing Super Mario Run on Apple's stage.|
" At an Apple event in San Francisco, CA earlier today, Nintendo announced that the leading man of video games will star in Super Mario Run, a full-sized Super Mario Bros. action platformer that has been developed specifically for mobile, and will be available first on the App Store this December. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto took the stage at the event and put Mario through his paces in a multi-level demonstration instantly familiar to millions of fans worldwide. In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the touch of a single finger to jump over obstacles, avoid pesky enemies and capture the flag pole to complete levels. " - Nintendo
" iOS users will be able to download and enjoy a portion of Super Mario Run for free and will be able to enjoy all of the game content available in this release after paying a set purchase price. More details will be disclosed at a later date. The game has been developed with Mr. Miyamoto as lead creator for Nintendo. Nintendo is also continuing its partnership with DeNA for the launch of Super Mario Run. It will be offered on the App Store this December in more than 100 different countries, and nine different languages.
To help iOS users get ready for the launch of Super Mario Run, a free Mario-themed sticker pack for the App Store for iMessage will launch this month. iMessage users can easily access and use these stickers in a variety of ways, bringing a bit of Mushroom Kingdom flavor to their conversations." - Nintendo
I always expected this day to come but didn't expect it this soon. Nintendo is basically the Apple of the gaming world so it not that surprising to see them to team up. I'm not sure why but this just has me feeling kind of salty... Either way its both a win for Apple and Nintendo. Another interesting tidbit, Shigeru Miyamoto said that the full game will have a single set price. I'm not sure whether they will kill off the Free-To-Play option or not. I guess only time will tell.
More info coming soon...
