Super Mario Run for Android is now available to download

Last week, we told you that Super Mario Run would be released on Android on March 23, three months after debuting on iOS. While it's not yet March 23 in the US (though it is in Japan and other parts of the world), the game can already be downloaded from Google Play - all you need is a device running Android 4.2 or newer. Oh, and you'll also need an Internet connection to actually play the game.

Just like the iOS version, Super Mario Run for Android is free to download and play. However, only a limited number of levels are available for free, and you'll have to pay $10 if you want the complete experience.

As you may already know, Super Mario Run falls into the endless runner category - it's fairly simple to play, but that doesn't mean it's always easy. 

The game features three modes: World Tour (where you're helping ol' Mario to save Princess Peach), Toad Rally (show off great moves to challenge your friends and other players around the world), and Kingdom Builder (where you can build your own kingdom).

If you'll be trying Super Mario Run on your Android device, do let us know what you think about it, okay?

As much as I am for in-app purchase free games that simply offer a one time payment to unlock everything...$10 is just too much for such a lackluster title.

If you have a valid US account, you can use a VPN to access United States Play Store. Sometimes even a valid US account has limited access when used outside United States.
