Nintendo to launch Android version of Super Mario in March


Japan’s Consumer Electronics giant, Nintendo said that it will release an Android version of Super Mario mobile game in March after the launch of Super Mario Run for Apple’s iPhone in December.

The Japanese organization announced the planned launch on its Twitter feed.

Super Mario Run represents a belated bid by Nintendo to tap mobile gaming after restricting its most popular gaming character to its own game consoles.

After the launch of the game on December 15, downloads topped a record 40 million in only four days.

By releasing an Android version, Nintendo can tap a much bigger pool of potential gamers. More than four out of five smartphones shipped in 2016 use the Android operating system, according to market research company IDC.

Analysts, however, also stated that less than one in 10 people who have downloaded Super Mario Run for free have agreed to pay $9.99 to unlock all the features of the game.
