At the ongoing apple press event in San Francisco, Shigeru Miyamoto, the chief game designer for Nintendo, announced that Mario would be coming to the app store.

Super Mario Run is a new mobile game, designed especially for iOS. It's going to be a runner game, where you control Mario and tap to make him jump over obstacles. There will also be a second Toad Battle mode. A bit like the Temple Run game that was popular a few years. It's the first ever Mario game for the iPhone and iPad.

It will be out later in the year, and will be a paid for app. While this has obviously been planned for a while, they will no doubt be spurred on by the popularity of Pokemon Go.

Expect to see everyone on the bus playing this.
