A couple months back, Nintendo and Niantic Labs made a splash when they launched Pokemon Go. The game has since then dwindled down from it's initial hype but today at Apple's special September 7th event, Shigeru Miyatomo (creator of Super Mario) revealed that Nintendo will be bringing Super Mario to a smartphone for the very first time.

The game is called Super Mario Run and will launch exclusively on iOS by December 2016. According to Nintendo, Super Mario Run will be (one-time) paid app and right now, the app is expected not to include any form of in-app purchases like other mobile games do.

Generally speaking, this new Super Mario Run game is a lot like the original games that were exclusive to Nintendo consoles in the past. The biggest difference is that the game has been designed to be played with one hand. In addition to that, Nintendo has also added a couple of new game modes to spice things up.

At launch, Nintendo's Super Mario Run game that features a 2.5D map will be available only on iOS devices but the company has expressed that they do have plans to bring the game to Android sometime next year.
