Super Mario Run - one of Nintendo's most high-profile smartphone titles - has been yanked from the iOS App Store.

The title remains available on the Android Google Play Store at the time of writing, but is totally absent from Apple's digital storefront - although its themed sticker set is still on offer. Phew!

It's not currently known why the game has been pulled; issues with titles on the App Store are usually solved with a timely update - totally removing a game would suggest something more serious. And before you say it, the removal can't be to do with iOS 11's impending arrival, as it's already a 64-bit app.

Needless to say, we'll be keeping our eye on developments, but in the meantime, why don't you post some of your own predictions below? Perhaps Nintendo - a company famous for under-supplying things - is trying some of its NES Mini magic in the world of digital distribution? You decide.
