Super Mario Run is about to take the world by storm.

Just as Pokemon Go did earlier this year when it came to iOS and Android, the iconic Italian plumber is about to take over mobile for the first time in his long and illustrious career.

It may have taken Nintendo far, far too long to do it, but Mario is finally coming to smartphones and tablets, so prepare to see countless people on trains, sidewalks, and pretty much everywhere else trying to guide the boss from Brooklyn through yet another memorable adventure.

To prepare you ahead of the game’s December 15 launch, let’s cover the basics to make sure you’re prepared and ready to go.

Gameplay

Super Mario Run is a side-scrolling, auto-runner platformer game for mobile.

You’ll play as and control Mario, who will automatically run from the left to the right of screen.

To jump, you need to touch the screen. The longer you touch the screen, the higher Mario will jump.

You’ll need to guide Mario over gaps, enemies and other obstacles while also collecting coins.

The main goal of Super Mario Run is to reach the end of a level as quickly as possible.

Each level has five pink coins: collecting all five unlocks five purple coins, and collecting them unlocks five black coins.

 

Game Modes

Aside from the mode described above, Super Mario Run also offers:

Toad Rally: A game in which you race against a ghost version of other players’ play through each level.

Kingdom Builder: In this mode you’ll be able to build your own kingdom using coins and Toads you’ve found throughout your playthrough.

 

 

Compatible Devices

iOS

Requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

MORE:   Nintendo broke the golden rule of the mobile game business with Super Mario Run

 

Microtransactions

Super Mario Run will have a one-off purchasing fee, and beyond that, it’s expected that there won’t be any additional in-app purchases.

It can be played for free, however, for the first few stages. Beyond that, the player will need to buy the full game in order to experience all of its features.

 

Online

An online connection is required in order to play Super Mario Run.  Nintendo says this is to ensure the game remains stable and secure at all times.
