Nintendo announced Super Mario Run for the iPhone at the Apple’s conference. It’s a surprise and definitely something we were not expecting. From the name, it appears to be in the vein of endless runner games like Temple Run etc.

Super Mario Run announced on iPhone – No Release Date has Been Confirmed Yet

No release date has been confirmed for the mobile game and no gameplay footage was shown. We expect Nintendo to announce the game formally on Youtube and their website. We’ll keep a look out for them and let you know when that happens.

Earlier, Nintendo had announced Super Mario Maker for the Nintendo 3DS. The popular level editor/ game was finally arriving to the 3DS after being a Wii U exclusive for a long time. Nintendo plans to release other titles as well, most notably the Pokemon Sun and Moon game for the 3DS and, most likely, their upcoming mystery console the Nintendo NX. We reported earlier the rumor console might also have backward compatibility.

At the moment we have no idea whether Super Mario Run will arrive on other mobile devices, especially the Android. Stay tuned to MobiPicker and we’ll keep you updated with the news.
