Take-a this! Super Mario Run coming to Android as well, but hardly anyone knows when exactly

Fret not, Android gamers, the plump plumber with the colorful clothes and the perky mustache that has been an integral part of many a childhood will officially grace Android devices sometime in the future, too!

Earlier today at Apple's September 7 event, Nintendo's mastermind Shigeru Miyaomoto announced the first Super Mario game on mobile—Super Mario Run—which would land on iOS devices later this year. While it was not explicitly said that the game will launch as an exclusive on iOS, probably lots of Android users felt a bit cheated that Apple's devices will get the game before anyone else.

Luckily, popular gaming website Kotaku was told by Nintendo itself that the Super Mario Run will eventually make it to Android devices. Great news! However, as usual, no possible release window has been revealed - the game could get released alongside its iOS peer or get delayed to 2017, no one knows.

All we know is that Super Mushrooms are the best ones around.

Yup, and stuff that don't make money dies away, which is why Android is gone right? Oh wait, no it's not.

But he will come back with that there is now a billion iOS devices in the world. Oh wait, but Android sells well over a billion smartphones every year. You gotta love the the propaganda that Apple feeds their zealots. Even Apple brought out Niantic or the pokemon go people, even he stated that the app was downloaded 500 million times. Yet they forgot to tell you that the majority of those users were Android users. Don't worry. It will come soon enough.

*Says Android sells a billion devices every year. *Doesn't realize that there are only 7 billion people alive, and half don't own smartphones. *Hasn't accounted for the fact Android has been around for 8 years. ........Retard confirmed XD.

Many people own more than one smartphone, you should know that many of my iPhone friends has multiple phone too. Many have both Android and iPhone. Personally I have 6 Android phones on hand.

So you avoid the part about Pokemon Go being downloaded and used on Android. Do you honestly believe that the 500 million downloads were all iOS users? If you believe that kiko007, then you win the prize for being an idiot.

So basically........ there are garbage phones that no one uses being shipped to people who don't want them to inflate numbers? Dude, even if that were the case....... it'd still look pretty shiity for Android. That would mean over half the Android devices are garbage after 6 months. We call those burner phones where I grew up.

As usual, it's "all of android" when numbers involved and "it's just that one manufacturer" when it's problems. Set the goal posts and keep them there. Is Apple competing against each manufacturer or the entire android consortium? Because if all of android features against iPhone, than all of android is having a recall because they are exploding. You either argue with all android including all of the problems or one manufacturer and only its problems. Right now, sgodsell is arguing all of android is better than iPhone, tomorrow he'll argue that you can get instant updates with android - get a nexus, (but nexus doesn't have an s-pen, or dual camera, or force touch, or a small version of flagship spec'd device like Sony). Just think about it - each device has pros and cons - and all of android devices vs IPhone, just does not compute.

Expected, Nintendo only wanted to expose the game where it matters. Could have been in a Nintendo direct, but those are aimed to gamers with game consoles, not necesarily with smarthphones.

Exactly. Android has nes, snes, sega, atari, gbc, gba, n64, gamecube, ps1, psp, ds, mame, and many other emulators. Its makes sense that it would be ios exclusive.

iOS have emulators too, for every console you named LOL. We have that plus the new iOS exclusive *Just joking, but that's true ;)*

Meanwhile everyone that wanted to play EVERY nintendo game already had it and used an emulator to run it.
