Droid users, get in line to stomp on some Goombas!
For Android-owning Mario fans lacking Apple devices to enjoy his first mobile adventure, you may finally get your chance soon. As announced on Nintendo of America’s Twitter, you can now pre-register Super Mario Run on Android devices, or you can simply just hop over to the official Google Play page.
A reminder that while the Android version doesn’t have a specific release date, it was previously announced for a 2017 date. That it’s up for pre-registration may be a sign it’ll hit Android devices soon, so we’ll keep you updated.
Something else to consider for consumers only vaguely aware of the game: Super Mario Run received some harsh feedback for its method of purchase. While the first three levels are free, it requires a $9.99 payment to continue. This backlash mainly came from folks caught unawares by the paywall, but now that shouldn’t be the case for you…unless you don’t want to plop down 10 bucks for mobile Mario. Furthermore, the game requires an online connection at all times, so you might want to think twice if you were planning to enjoy it on the go.
