The popularity of Super Mario Run for iOS may be starting to wane slightly, but there is great anticipation for the arrival of Nintendo’s Italian plumber on Android. Well, the wait is nearly over — Nintendo has added Super Mario Run to Google Play!
Malware producers were quick to jump on the popularity of the Mario game on iOS, pushing fake, malware-filled versions into the Play Store. In a move that will not only help to prevent people falling victim to such scams, but also serves to indicate the imminent arrival of the office game, eager Mario fans can now pre-register to download Super Mario Run for Android.
The Google Play entry for the game is also a tantalizing glimpse of what the Android version of Super Mario Run will look like — very much like the iOS version, funnily enough! You are also treated to a video the game in action so you can fully envision what Mario will look like in his fully Androidy-parallaxy-platformy glory.
There is no mention of cost at the moment, but it’s hard to imagine that it will be priced differently to the iOS version of the game. Nintendo says: “You will be able to download and enjoy a portion of Super Mario Run for free and can also enjoy all of the game content available after paying a set purchase price”.
If you want to register your interest in the game, head over to the Super Mario Run page in Google Play right now! This means you’ll be told the moment the game is released so you can install it straight away.
