Super Mario Run for Android will be available March 23

Super Mario Run for Android

The Android version of Super Mario Run finally has a launch date.

Super Mario Run will be available from the Play Store on March 23, Nintendo announced today. The update will be version 2.0.0 of the app, which suggests that it’ll include all the improvements that Nintendo has made to the iOS version of Super Mario Run in the months since its launch.

As a reminder, Super Mario Run is free to start, with the first three levels being available at no charge. If you’d like to keep playing after that, the game costs $9.99.

Nintendo definitely took its sweet time in bringing Super Mario Run to Android, but it’s good to see that it’s finally almost here. The game may not appeal to everyone, but we’ve found the iOS version to be a fun game that gets challenging when you start working on earning the black coins on each level, and the levels themselves are short enough to play when you just need a brief distraction.

Are you going to try Super Mario Run when it launches next week?
