Race your friends: Super Mario Run now adds Friendly Run mode, no tickets required

It was only a couple of days ago when Nintendo announced that it doesn't plan on adding more content to the kind of short, but rather expensive Super Mario Run. However, it seems the company views "content" and "features" as two entirely separate notions, as just today, we were greeted by a new ingredient, added to the Mario Run formula.

There is now a Friendly Run mode in the game, which, as the name implies, lets you play quick races vs your friends (taken straight from your in-game friends list). You won't spend a ticket, but you also don't get coins, toads, or level up enemies — the mode is just there for some fun with your pals.

Despite the fact that you won't be spending tickets, however, Friendly Run is still limited. If you haven't passed the first World (the first 4 levels), you only get to race a friend once per day. If you've cleared World 1 but are still on World 2, you get 3 Friendly Runs per day, and anyone that has passed the second World gets a total of 5 Runs per day.

So, there you have it. "No new content" may mean "no new levels or characters", but there's sure hope that we might still get some extra features to spice up the game down the line. Happy jumping!

Enough already with this overrated, boring and unnecessary game. Plus it should be mentioned that the Nintendo chief is a pervert pedophile who went to court several times. It's really disgusting me.

if my kid didn't ask me to buy it, after I played the first 3 boards; I knew I didn't like it. But we both like Mario and we were goign to play it together. he hasn't playe dit since clearing the first castle and another ave I. I've waste more than $10.00 on other things. Hwoever, if they are goign to add something, stop limiting it. My kids iPad doesn't have cellular like mine. So he can't even play unless on WiFi, which is another reason he doesn't play; because I limit his WiFi usage. Im so glad the vast majority of the downloads, people didn't buy it. That way noether company gets a frikkin dime.
