After the runaway success of Pokemon GO, Nintendo was always going to take another dive into the lucrative mobile market. After all, if an Apple Maps clone with a bunch of Pidgeys thrown in can become a worldwide phenomenon, then imagine what a good game can do?
And now, the Japanese gaming giants have announced the release date for their long-awaited follow-up app – a Mario platformer, called Super Mario Run.
It's set for the iOS App Store on 15 December, and will be free to download – that is, until you want to unlock the full game, which comes at a price of £7.99.
It's part of the endless runner genre of mobile games, in the same vain as Temple Run. Check out the trailer below:
