Nintendo’s Big Announcements At Apple’s Latest Event


In a move that surprised everyone, Nintendo had a decent amount to say at Apple's event today.

In the first big announcement (announced by Shigeru Miyamoto himself), Mario will officially be coming to the app store via Super Mario Run. Exclusively on iOS, Super Mario Run is a automatic runner that has Mario platforming through some of his iconic levels. There will be a multiplayer mode as well, called "Toad Ralley" where you can compete against others to get the highest score by collecting coins and pulling off special moves. Finally, you will be able to design your own Mushroom Kingdom, but what that means specifically was not revealed.

Super Mario Run will be released in November. The price wasn't discussed, though there will be a free version of the game that gives access to some of the content.

Next up, two mobile games from Nintendo that were already revealed have been delayed. Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem were expected to release this fall, but have been pushed back to next year. During the announcement, it was stated, "Nintendo plans to deliver its previously announced mobile device titles in the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem series before the end of March, 2017.". 

Finally, Pokémon Go, the app that consumed the world for months, will be coming to Apple Watches. Many features from the game will be accessed through your Apple Watch, like how much distance an egg needs to hatch, seeing which Pokémon are nearby, and alerting you when one appears. Pokestops will also be accessible through your watch.

The Apple Watch Pokémon Go update will release sometime before the end of this year.
