The "Super Mario Run" Is Finally Here, At Least For The iOS Devices
"Super Mario Run," which is dubbed as the "new Mario game you can play with one hand," is now free to download on iPhones and iPads via the App Store. The access is free for just a certain portion of the game, and gamers would need to pay 10 bucks to enjoy the full content.

"By launching this smart device game, Nintendo is opening Mario up to people who might be attracted by a sense of nostalgia as well as introducing a new generation of gamers to the brand."
