Does anyone else remember a point where wikia always had a link at the bottom of a page to some kind of touchscreen gaming wiki, and the preview picture is a guy holding an iPhone with a screenshot from NSMB photoshopped on so it looks like he's making Mario run by tilting the device is this ringing any bells

This looks like an enjoyable time waster and therefore right for the iPhone.

this sure reminds me of something

Sonic wants you to beat your friends

anyway a mario-themed infinite runner seems to work much better than i expected. hopefully the fact that it it isn't a freemium game means it wont have ridiculous microtransactions like the other mobile games out there (for example, sonic dash, which i just brought up anyway)

> iOS exclusive

For the love of Poochy this game is actually looking somewhat enjoyable and its only available on bricks egh.

Apparently it's just a one-time payment without other limitations after, so an actual example of how games should be sold. Neat.

Cosmetic microtransactions are alright but the ones that severely limit how much you can play without spending any money are kind of annoying. If they just have you pay to unlock Luigi to play as or whatever that's fine I guess

Wow, this went quickly, they even jumped a few intermediate steps and directly went to runner with Mario presented at an Apple conference! Now I want to see the computer software, Nintendo!

This being said, the two Rayman runners were actually pretty great in my opinion, so it's not like this is necessarily the end of quality in the Mario franchise.

still, there is something that makes me think:
  • Why on earth does Mario have a set of moves that weren't featured in the NSMB games?
  • The NSMB style is clearly THE official Mario style, if P&D:SMBE wasn't already explicit enough, still, with Super Mario Maker and now this game, the fate of the NSMB series is now debatable at best, because another game with this style will be considered bootleg tier at best. The next 2D Mario game should be no less earthshattering than what SMW and SMW2: YI were at the time to be credible even in the eyes of the casual gamers. Or, you know, Nintendo can just stop caring, keep on recycling every reusable asset it can using only a different rendering resolution (in particular, the Larry artwork, model and animations) and go on beyond human reason because the series is doomed anyway, maybe a so intrisically hopeless series can become a source of memeing.
  • Toad Rally, seriosuly, is Nintendo really trolling all the people who disliked the Toad aspect of Sticker Star? We saw Color Splash first with Tabata comments that ensured that the NPCs are mainly Toads, then Mario Party with Toad Scramble, now this. Good thing that Toad is one of my favorite Mario Kart characters ;)

Looks like they're trying to make Toads the NPC mascot characters, kind of like how Goombas represent the enemies. Doesn't look like it's working out very well, though.

To be fair, Green Toad should be Nintendo's official mascot on LINE:

Anyway
In the gameplay demo, there seems to be an option to change character when getting ready for Toad Rally.
