Nintendo's high-profile smartphone game Super Mario Run launched today for iOS devices. In addition to Mario, the game lets you play as other characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, but how do you unlock them? Now that the game is out, it's been revealed that there are five unlockable characters, some of which are only obtainable if you pay.

First, you can unlock Toad by linking your My Nintendo account to Super Mario Run. Peach can be obtained by finishing the game's 24 World Tour levels. The other three characters, Yoshi, Toadette, and Luigi, can be unlocked by purchasing certain items in the Kingdom Builder mode using in-game items.

Super Mario Run is free to download (free-to-start is the term Nintendo uses), but that only gets you the first three World Tour levels. After that, you need to pay $10 to unlock the rest.

You can download Super Mario Run right here.

In other news, research group SuperData said it expects Super Mario Run to reach 30 million downloads and bring in $60 million during its first month. As announced previously, the game is launching first on iOS devices before coming to Android sometime next year.
