As Apple launched its next-generation iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus this year, it also had something exciting to announce side-by-side. The announcement that followed was the launch of Super Mario on iOS. Shigeru Miyamoto, the man behind Nintendo s legendary and iconic game Super Mario, made a special appearance and announced that the first game called Super Mario Run will be released on iOS later this year. Right on cue, Super Mario Run has finally hit the App Store for iPhones and iPads. The game is free to download, but for the full game you will have to shell out Rs 620.

Super Mario Run brings the cute and stout plumber to your iOS devices and the best part is that you can play it with one hand. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch running on iOS 8.0 and above. The game is basically a continuous runner like Temple Run, wherein the character runs from left to right and during its course of journey, collects coins, jumps over obstacles and squishes enemies.

The full game consists of three modes. The first is World Tour, second Toad Rally, and third Kingdom Builder. In World Tour, you should run and jump to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser s clutches, and travel through plains, caverns, haunted houses, airships, castles and more. There are six worlds to clear which are filled with 24 courses. The second mode which is Toad Rally, is actually a challenge mode wherein the competition differs each time you play. As you compete against other players and gather coins, a crowd of Toads will cheer for you and if you re impressive enough, the Toads may come alive in your kingdom.

In this mode, you can even perform different moves to fill up your gauge and launch into Coin Rush. To play this mode however, Rally Tickets are required which can be gained by clearing worlds or through bonus games in your kingdom. The third mode that is the Kingdom Builder lets you build your own kingdom by gathering coins and Toads. You can create your kingdom with buildings and place decorations as well with the help of Toads gathered in Toad Rally. RELATED: Miyamoto s wife was the inspiration behind Super Mario s debut on iOS

The launch of Super Mario Run comes after the overly successful launch of Pok mon GO in India. Nintendo is also behind the game, but owns a minority stake in the Pok mon Company along with Niantic which holds the major part. Pokemon GO took the world by storm, with the fever proving to be one of 2016 s biggest trends online. Although the fever has died down quite a lot, the game still remains popular and it was released in India officially just yesterday.

BBC cites experts predict that Super Mario Run will also prove to be popular like Pok mon GO. Piers Harding-Rolls from HIS Technology consultancy opines, “Mario is one of the best loved and established icons of gaming and I think this is going to be tremendously successful. To open up the full game you have to make an in-app purchase – it’s quite big but it is a one-off and I don’t think people will think Nintendo is trying to rinse their audience. However, he added that staying online to play Super Mario Run is a misstep to which Shigeru Miyamoto said was done to limit piracy of the game.

As of now, Nintendo has released the game for iOS devices in 151 countries including India and it supports different languages like English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian and traditional Chinese. Nintendo did say that Super Mario Run will come to Android devices at some point in the future but did not specify any time frame.
