VIDEO: Is Super Mario Run The Next Pokemon Go?


Published at 1:04pm 15th December 2016.

There is no denying that everyone loves Nintendo’s Mario and if you don’t then you should probably leave.

Finally! Mario will be appearing on iPhones and iPads with a brand new game.

But before we go any further, we need to tell you that it will cost £7.99…

A little steep perhaps, but maybe not for all you mega fans out there.

Its release comes soon after Pokemon Go, a game that gained popularity worldwide, giving you the chance to catch Pokemon through an interactive game.

Pokemon GO is partly owned by Nintendo, so Super Mario Run could also leave millions locked to their screens and bumping into lamp posts.  

The much-anticipated game for iPhones is similar to the popular game Temple Run - you control Mario, collect coins and avoid the enemies.

Want in? Take a look at what you can expect from the game.


Sorry Android owners, maybe you could give Pokemon Go another try?
