Super Mario Run Coming To Android Next Week

The popular auto-runner arrives on Android very soon.


Super Mario Run will launch for Android platforms on March 23, Nintendo has announced.

Back in January, Nintendo confirmed that Super Mario Run would arrive for Android in March, but this is the first we're hearing of a specific date. The game arrives with the Version 2.0.0 update, though no other details about what the update will contain were shared (via DualShockers).

Super Mario Run was originally released for iOS devices exclusively back in December 2016. It was a huge hit, racking up 78 million downloads by Nintendo's latest count.

The game's free download comes with a sampling of levels, but you need to pay $10 to unlock every course. According to Nintendo, five percent of players have paid to buy all the courses, meaning the game has brought in many millions of dollars in revenue so far.
