Nintendo Teasing 'Super Mario Run' With Series of Tweets

Thursday, 24 November 2016

We are only a few weeks away from Super Mario Run hitting iOS, so Nintendo thought this was a good time to fire off a few fun gifs and art on Twitter to tease the upcoming Mario runner. Nintendo has been doing this for a few days, and I expect it to continue up until the release. The first tweet was about Mario seemingly jumping faster and further than ever before, the next one had him jumping over obstacles, the third having him doing some very intriguing acrobatic moves where he rolls over a block instead of just jumping over it, and today's has his vaulting over Goombas and Koopa Troopas but not stomping them.

I think Nintendo is probably trying to let those who've never played a Mario game before what the upcoming iOS game will be all about and, of course, building up hype for the upcoming release. Keep an eye on Nintendo's Twitter account for more gifs and art prior to the game's release on December 15th.
