The wait won't be much longer.
'Super Mario Run' came out earlier this month for iOS and was downloaded over 40 million times. That means a lot of gamers have been able to get their hands on Mario's first mobile adventure, but none of those have been Android users. The hit game still isn't available on the Google Play Store, but it looks like that is changing soon.
'Super Mario Run's Google Play page has been updated with a "pre-register" button. This allows players to become notified once the game goes live on Android systems. The $9.99 game currently features four modes: World Tour, Kingdom Builder, Toad Rally, and the newly added Friendly Run.
"The wait is almost over for a 'Super Mario' game that can be played on mobile devices," said Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Doug Bowser. "Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, 'Super Mario Run' brings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to [mobile] for the first time."
'Super Mario Run' released December 15th for $9.99 on iOS. An Android release is forthcoming.
