It’s a rare day that doctors are running ahead of schedule. Fortunately, today is just such a day as Dr. Mario, the classic 1990s Nintendo puzzle game, has landed in the App Store one day early.

Originally expected to drop July 10, Dr. Mario instead went live today. It’s free to download, although there are in-app purchases available for those who hate the idea of socialized health care.

Nintendo has confirmed that Dr. Mario will be its next franchise to make the leap to mobile.

Dr. Mario World is scheduled for a worldwide release in “early summer” on Android and iOS. It will be developed by Nintendo, Line, and NHN Entertainment, and just like the rest of Nintendo’s mobile lineup, it will be free-to-play.
