Super Mario Run – Nintendo’s first mobile outing for its mustachioed mascot – will launch for iPhone on 15th December, priced at $9.99.
We’ve yet to get an official UK price, although £7.99 is a safe bet. (UPDATE: Nintendo has now confirmed this).
Super Mario Run is free to start, with a limited portion of the game available to play without charge. You’ll be able to try out all three of the app’s main modes.
Nintendo will then require you to pay if you want to access the full game – via the above one-off fee.
The three modes let you challenge courses and collect coins, challenge player ghost data of your friends, and finally create your own Mushroom Kingdom using the coins and Toads collected from these modes.
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices with iOS 8.0 are supported. An Android version of the game has yet to be dated.
