Nintendo releases a live-action Super Mario Run trailer, showcasing the spirit of the game.
Super Mario Run sees Mario run forward on his own, tasking players with tapping their finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off moves, collect coins, and reach the flagpole to complete courses.
When it launches, it will be available as a free download allowing players to try elements of the game’s three modes for free. A one-time payment of $9.99 will grant unlimited access to each of the three modes.
Watch the trailer below:
The live-action trailer shows off people of all ages and nationalities, frantically running through various locations, featuring iconic monuments around the globe. Interspersed with the classic Super Mario Bros. music theme in a cheery tone, the trailer barely shows off the plumber in action except the last few seconds where the runners flock the Times Square lead by Mario himself, who touches the flag of a virtual castle, just like in the titular games.
