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.
Nintendo won’t bring its popular game franchises to iOS, and Apple won’t allow emulators in the App Store. In order to play titles like Super Mario and Zelda on your iPhone, then, you have to look at unofficial alternatives. GBA4iOS was one of the most popular — but after its creators received a DMCA notice from Nintendo this week, it is no more.
