The eagerly-awaited launch of Super Mario Run for Android just got a bit clearer: It will arrive in March, Nintendo says.
“The Android version of Super Mario Run will be delivered in March 2017,” a Nintendo tweet reads (in Japanese). “Currently, Google Play is accepting signups to inform you of when delivery begins. Please sign up.”
The ability to “pre-register” for Super Mario Run for Android went live in late December, but the game trails the iPhone/iPad version by months. It was first announced at the iPhone 7 press conference in September, where it was literally the only surprise at the event. But it shipped on iOS back in mid-December.
Aside from feeling like a second-class citizen—something I feel keenly now as an Xbox-using Call of Duty fan—Android users have a lot to look forward to: Super Mario Run is a surprisingly rich game, with tons of unique and enjoyable game play. It’s also wrapped in that Disney-esque Nintendo charm and quality, and well worth the $10 asking price.
Why Nintendo can’t just announce the exact release date is unclear.
