I don’t know how many of you guys watch the iPhone, Apple event stuff. I know that I didn’t, but did get a little surprise when I saw that Mario was being released on the iPhone in December. Apparently Shigeru Miyamoto made a cameo at the event and broke down what’s going on. What I picked up on is that it’s going to consist of collecting coins in a Mushroom Kingdom esque level in a certain time period. The more coins you collect the better, and there will be multi-player going on as well. Now they also mentioned it is not an iPhone exclusive and will come to other platforms later on.
Normally I would be excited about any new Mario game because it is my personal favorite franchise. However the gameplay doesn’t sound too exciting and really just seems like Rayman Legend mobile games from what I could gleam. But anyways kind of exciting, a little bit of a bummer that Nintendo isn’t trying to hold out of the mobile phone market and caved, but oh well who cares.
By the way the game is called ‘Super Mario Run’
The first source I saw it actually had screenshots of the game he showed. I’ll try to find that one and post those here.
