On the run

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has revealed that Super Mario Run will launch in 150 countries this December rather than 100, as was originally planned.

The game will be exclusive to iOS for a limited time. Kimishima also confirmed that the Android version is in active development, but currently doesn't have a release window.

Super Mario Run's "free to start" credentials were also reinforced, with Kimishima stating that "children can also play it with peace of mind."

During the financial briefing, Kimishima outlined Nintendo's plans for mobile, and explained why its first smartphone title - Miitomo - had not been included in the company's latest financial report. He admitted that it "has not been impactful from a profit perspective," but was meeting Nintendo's expectations.

Miitomo has been downloaded more than 15 million times on iOS and Android, while Super Mario Run already has over 20 million pre-registration sign-ups on iOS.
