Super Mario Run iPhone gameplay video is an exquisite teaser

Super Mario is coming to iOS in just one week, on Thursday, December 15th, 2016, but for the most impratient ones, you can already play the game in Apple Stores in the United States.

Now, Nintendo has released another teaser for the upcoming game: a three and a half minute gameplay video that will give you an idea of what the newest Mario game looks like.

Bringing back classics like Super Mario is always an extremely challenging task: people expect not only a great game, they expect a game that often transports them back to their sweetest childhood moments.

That is why Super Mario Run was met with such an enthusiasm from the unexpecting crowd at the Apple event a couple of months ago. Apple had Shigeru Miyamoto himself, the creator of the Mario game, on stage telling us about the new Mario game. It will be an exclusive to Apple's iPhones in the beginning, free to download and try, but $15 to unlock the full game with the promise of no in-app ads and a truly enjoyable game experience.

We, for once, can't wait.

Having all these ads that have audio that are trying to play at the same time is ridiculous This site is becoming a complete and uttered mess. Just plain garbage! Anyways, game looks good. Haha! You know you're going down when you have to bring your apps to other platforms. Can't wait to play it. I hope it looks that good on Android, assuming it will come to Android. Will look cool on my iPad. Won' work with one hand on that though.

Hey, Techie, can you do me a favor and send me a screenshot of those ads at victor dot h at phonearena dot com ? That is definitely not supposed to happen and we have people working to fix such annoying issues, but it does not entirely depend on us and it's often hard to detect. Mario looks great, doesn't it?

5 animated add and 1 video is way too much. I know my work computer is only a lowly quad core 2.6 gigz with 4 gb of ram but using 97% of ram with nothing open but 1 tab of phonearena is a joke...

I thought it was $9.99 to play the full game? I ask because, in the article, it says, "It will be ...$15 to unlock the full game."

Hopefully the Android version will be controller compatible. I would much rather enjoy it that way.
