Dr Mario

Just a few hours ago, Nintendo released the first gameplay footage and details for its upcoming smartphone game, Dr. Mario World. An official site for the game has gone live alongside the announcement, revealing some extra little details not mentioned in the trailer.

Perhaps the most notable of these details is the country availability for the app. We couldn't help but notice that Belgium is completely excluded, for example, which is likely thanks to the fact that the country is stamping out pay-to-win gaming. This issue has already seen Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Fire Emblem Heroes be shut down in the region.

On top of that, in some countries, the app will only be available on a specific platform. In most cases, you'll be able to choose from either iOS or Android, but some areas only support one store. Nintendo says that "there is a chance" that the list will be added to, but here's where you can expect to play the game at launch:
