Nintendo puts a price on Super Mario Run (and the Switch?)The company's first smartphone game is coming to iOS on December 15 and it won't be totally free. Fans are also wondering if a retailer just spilled the beans on the price of the upcoming Switch console.
Nintendo's first smart phone game is landing on iPhones and iPads in a month from now on December 15th. But it won't be completely free. Super Mario Run will be a free download to try out, but it will cost $10 to open up access to the full game. The game is a bit different than other Mario games because Mario keeps running automatically and you have. The tap to keep him jumping around to collect coins and avoid obstacles. That makes it easy to play with one hand. There are also three modes. In world tour, the goal is to get through the level to rescue the princess from evil Bowser The usually stuff. Toad Rally opens stuff when you clear some levels in the World Tour. Here you can compete with others around the world to collect the most coins. And there's kingdom builder where you take all the coins you earned in the Toad Rally and spend them on building some decorations to make your own lands. No word on the when it'll be coming to Android but it will eventually. Meanwhile Nintendo is also keeping fans curious about the price of it's new game system. The Nintendo Switch coming out in March of next year. Over the weekend the Canadian Toys Are Us website listed the Nintendo Switch as costing About 330 Canadian dollars, which comes out to about 250 bucks in the US. The site removed the listing, oopsies. If that price is right, that means i'll cost less than the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox 1. And it's also about what the Nintendo 3DS handheld cost at launch. The switch is portable but it can also be docked at home to play games on your large screen TV. I'm Bridget Carey, stay up to date with the biggest tech news at CNET.com/update. [MUSIC]
