Mario is coming to the iPhone and iPad in the Holidays. Apple and Nintendo go overboard marketing the Super Mario Run game.
Super Mario Run has been one of the biggest highlights at the Apple iPhone 7 event last week. Nobody saw it coming. Mario is invading the iPhone and iPad in December. Apple is already prominently featuring the game now on the Apple Store, despite the release is still three months away. Mario fans can register to get notified once Super Mario Run is on sale.

Legendary video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto shows how he likes to play Super Mario Run in an entertaining video just released.
Super Mario Run is a unique Mario experience for iPhone and iPad that you can play with one hand. Miyamoto demonstrates how convenient one-hand play can be.
Super Mario Run will be free for download and some content will be available for free. Additional content will be sold for your hard earned cash. It is not going to be your typical in-app purchases. Nintendo will sell the whole game in one time payment. So basically you are getting one or more levels free to check it out. If you or your kids like it, you buy the whole game.
In the first really exciting Nintendo smartphone 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.
There are three different game modes to play. The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete while collecting coins. The second mode has you challenge the play data of other players to show who can beat a course with the most style to impress Toads into joining you. In the third mode, you get to create your own Mushroom Kingdom using the coins and Toads collected by playing the first two game modes.
I am pretty sure Super Mario Run will be the only game my kids will play this Holidays.
Watch below Miyamoto taking the stage at the Apple September 7 event, introducing Super Mario Run. The video also contains gameplay scenes.
