Nintendo’s Super Mario Run is now available for Android devices in the United States. At least for those with Android 4.2 upwards. The free to start game is already available on iOS and that version received an update for more new Yoshi colours, new buildings, more stages to be played for free and so on. Super Mario Run already had a fixed amount of free stages that you could play for free as part of a demo. Paying $10 upgrades you to the full version of the game which doesn’t have microtransactions.



Thus far, this strategy hasn’t worked out too badly for Nintendo despite initial worries. The company has since been experimenting more with its pricing models for mobile titles. This is evidenced by Fire Emblem Heroes allowing you to purchase different heroes for use in battles through microtransactions while being free to play.
