Unofficial Super Mario game accidentally appears in the App Store

8

We're all anxious to get out hands on the Super Mario Run game for iOS devices, but that won't happen until December 15, according to Nintendo.

Well, it looks like there's a way to quench that thirst for playing the beloved platformer, but only if you don't bother playing an unofficial game featuring iconic Nintendo characters.

Zelda and Mario are just two of the characters present in Stars Utopia, an iOS game that accidentally made it to the App Store. Published and/or developed by someone who goes by the name Coline Wang, Stars Utopia is available for free.

It features 3D graphics and comes with over 100 classic characters from all universes. Although it's clear that this isn't an official Nintendo game, we don't know how it got through Apple's approval process.

Stars Utopia copies just about all Nintendo's assets, including the music from its games, graphics, characters and gameplay mechanics.

Since Nintendo is very protective with its property, we expect this game won't last too long in the App Store, but if you don't mind the idea of playing a rip off Super Mario game this is the best alternative until the original Super Mario Run gets released next week.
