Japan-based Nintendo said it will launch an Android version of its Super Mario Run mobile game in March following the launch of Super Mario Run for Apple Inc’s iPhone in December.
The Japanese firm revealed the planned launch on its official Twitter account.
Meanwhile Super Mario Run marks an overdue bid by Nintendo to tap mobile gaming after confining its most popular gaming character to its own game consoles.
After introducing the game on Dec. 15, downloads surpassed a record 40 million in just four days.
Now after releasing an Android version, Nintendo can target a much bigger pool of potential gamers. According to the researches, more than four out of five smartphones sold in 2016 use the Android operating system.
Though Analysts have noted that to this point less than one in 10 people who have downloaded Super Mario Run for free have agreed to pay $9.99 to unravel all the features of the game.
