Super Mario Run for iOS updated with more free content

Super Mario Rolls Out for Android Users

The game lets players test out the first world before being required to pay $9.99 to unlock the rest.

As we have seen, Super Mario Run will reward players who open the game at least once a day with gifts like tickets to the Toad Rally gameplay, as well as coins that can be redeemed to buy different objects.

The president of Nintendo, Tatsumi Kimishima, spoke recently on the Nikkei Asia of the business model chosen for the mobile game of the company, confirming the desire to invest in the business model of Free-To-Start, as in the case of Super Mario Run. Ahead of the game's release, it was reported that Nintendo was eyeing a pay-once model so that parents could download Super Mario Run for their kids without the added anxiety of in-app purchases appearing later in their iTunes purchase history. But the most interesting thing is this isn't because of money, not at all. Many got through the entire campaign very quickly, and unless you try and go for all of the special coins some felt the $10 price tag wasn't worth it.

Nintendo's Super Mario Run has finally come to Android this week, following the iOS version when it comes to the payment structure. According to Nintendo's earlier announcement, the game arrived on the Google Play Store on 22 March instead, along with an update on iOS. Their sales numbers haven't been released on Fire Emblem Heroes, but the game seems to be more of a "cash cow". But even though Fire Emblem Heroes has proven more profitable as a freemium title, another Nintendo official described the game as an, "outlier".

If you are a Super Mario fan then there is some good news in store for you.
