    The iPhone 7 was released today. The most exciting part of the announcement has to be the Super Mario Run announcement! If you were worried about the game not coming to Android there is no need to fret. The game looks to be a horizontal running game very reminiscent of the Super Mario games from your childhood. The game will be exclusive to iOS when it releases, but Nintendo has already confirmed that they have plans to eventually bring the game to Android. We have no release date mind you, but it is still exciting this is coming to our devices.

    I wish it wasn't a Temple Run game. I don't really seem to keep interested in those kind of games for too long.

    But I'll definitely be downloading it when it becomes available for android, depending on the price tag and reviews.

    Yeah, they said pricing was still being worked out. So...

    As soon as the first rooted Android device get's it for $11.99 USD, then we will all have it for $Free.99.

    Gotta give the closed Apple ecosystem a chance to make some money off this capitalistic venture first, ey?

    That wallows in lameness. Sorry. A running type game? Not. Even Remotely Impressed.
    A true Mario game? I'd get an iPhone for that.

    That's one game from the past I could consider, like Jonny said, if priced right. Then again I'd only play it once or twice...

    It's not from the past. It's a new runner style game. I stick to my previous lame comment.

    With the exception of the fact that you controlled whether he ran or stood still, OG Mario WAS a runner game.

    I'll give it a shot, but only for a buck or 2. Like Efin, I'll probably delete it thereafter, but I'm hopeful that good sales will prompt them to put out more & better Nintendo games for Android, so I'll do my part.

    +1, the most I've paid for an app was a construction calculator, $15 or 20, I believe, but the actual calculator is over $50, and having the same thing on the phone that's in your pocket already, paid for itself when I didn't have to walk across the project wasting 10 minutes to get the one on my desk...

    But you could stop. And go backwards to get that coin you missed. I don't like those runner type games at all.

    I don't either, but it's Mario.

    No success for them with this game will mean no better games down the line. I'm telling you.

    I'm not a game fan in general so my commentary here is really not going to provide any value, however if I had a choice between a more interactive game and the "arcade" style running Mario style game I'd have to go with more interactivity.
