Yes, you read that correctly. Nintendo is finally bringing a Super Mario game to iPhone, it confirmed during Apple’s iPhone 7 keynote this morning.

It’s called Super Mario Run, and it’s designed specifically for touchscreen devices. It’s the first Mario game you can play one-handed, Nintendo says, and it will hit the App Store in time for the holidays this year.
