Nintendo video Super Mario over the years

With Super Mario Run now live on the App Store following its announcement at the iPhone 7 event back in September, both Apple and Nintendo are now promoting the game like crazy. Early reviews indicate that Super Mario Run has all the hallmarks of the Mario franchise even though the game is optimized for one-handed gameplay so Mario constantly moves forward through the courses. Celebrating Mario’s App Store debut, Nintendo has put together a little video showing how the game has evolved over the years.

Check it out below.

Here’s another video Nintendo Mobile just shared on its YouTube channel in which legendary Mario creator and video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto draws Super Mario Run on an iPad Pro.

Super Mario Run is a free download with a non-compulsory $9.99 In-App Purchase to unlock all the gameplay modes and levels.

You can learn more about the game at the official website.
