Super Mario is on his way to challenge Pokemon Go!
Apple officials revealed today at their keynote event that they have teamed up with Nintendo to create a new Super Mario game–Super Mario Run–specifically for iOS.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the game will be simple for users to play, “as Mario automatically runs to the right and the user only has to tap the screen to make the character jump to avoid obstacles or hit objects.”
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Super Mario, unveiled the game and said that a release date has yet to be announced, but Apple and Nintendo are aiming for releasing this holiday season.
“We could not be more honored that Nintendo chose to bring Super Mario to iOS first,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the launch event.
