Legendary video game developer Shigeru Miyamoto will be demoing the upcoming iOS game, Super Mario Run, at the Apple SoHo, New York store. The event is set to kick off on Thursday, December 8, 2016, 6:00 p.m. Super Mario Run will be arriving on iOS on December 15th and will retail for $9.99. I fully expect the game to shoot to the top of the iOS charts and it will stand to make the company a truckload of cash.

Nintendo has announced the final release date for Super Mario Run for iOS. The highly anticipated title will release on December 15th and will run $9.99. Nintendo first showcased the mobile game during one of Apple’s event’s and it was pretty sweet to see Shiggy on stage with Apple’s big names. Here is what they had to say regarding the game:
“The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run brings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to iPhone and iPad for the first time.”
Super Mario Run is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later. Count us in.
Once again, Pokemon Go sits atop the top grossing games list on the iOS charts. The Halloween event most likely has given the popular title the boost so I am certain Niantic is taking notice. Last week, the game had fallen as low as number ten. With the additions coming to Pokemon GO, we can see this trend continuing for the near future.
In case you didn’t know, Super Mario Run for iOS is going to be HUGE. According to Apple’s Tim Cook, 20 million people have already to hit the ‘Notify’ button for Super Mario Run when it comes out. Apple placed information about the game on its app store and millions of people want to know when the game is fully released. It was a joy to see Nintendo take center stage during an Apple event and we can’t wait to get our hand (yes 1 hand) on the game.

Apple’s chief executive officer Tim Cook tweeted out that he was checking out Super Mario Run for iOS at Nintendo headquarters. The interesting tweet simply stated “Getting the hang of Super Mario Run, thanks to Miyamoto-san and his awesome team at Nintendo” but it’s pretty nifty to actually see the picture. Check it out and get ready for the release of Super Mario Run on iOS.
Pokemon Go is now back on top in the U.S. top grossing charts on iOS. It looks as though the “fad” is back and I cannot wait to see what Pokemon GO will bring to us in the future. With the promise of trading, more gyms/Pokecenters, it looks like Pokemon GO will have a bright future ahead of it. I still log into my game from time to time but I think I may try and focus back up and level my character. With Niantic providing regular updates it seems to have kept users interested in the application and has once again captured players money and attention…
Earlier today, during the Apple event, it was announced that Mario is headed to an iOS device near you, before the end of this year. The new Mario game you can play with one hand will release sometime in December of 2016 for iPhone and iPad. Check out the first gameplay trailer that was released and let us know if you plan on downloading this game when it’s released. After the announcement, Nintendo’s stock jumped big time and we can’t wait to hear more.
Check out the gameplay trailer for Super Mario Run above.
During today’s APPLE event (yes you read correctly), Nintendo joined the stage and announced Super Mario Run for iOS. The game looks like New Super Mario Bros for Wii U and features simple, one touch controls. I was legit SHOCKED that Nintendo was a big part of Apples conference and was very interesting to say the least!
The game will be available on iOS before the end of the year.
The official Guinness World Records site has reported that Pokemon GO has broken 5 records. They are “Most revenue grossed by a mobile game in its first month”, “Most downloaded mobile game in its first month”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (downloads)”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (revenue)” and “Fastest time to gross $100 million by a mobile game”. The site says the records were confirmed after “consulting the kings of digital data SuperData”.
The game is also said to be on track to earn over 1 BILLION (yes, with a “B”) by the end of 2016.
The immensely popular Pokemon GO game is now available in Brazil. The game has been a long time coming to the country, so it will be sweet to see Pokemon GO head straight to #1 there as well. I have been having a decent time with the game although I need to get “back into it” as I have took a break from hunting down Pokemon (I needed to load up on Pokeballs and I refuse to pay just yet)..
In other Pokemon Go news, the game has apparently made over 160 MILLION in revenue. Players could buy in game items with real money and apparently everyone is doing so.
