Super Mario Run Coming to Android in March

"Let's-a go to Google Play!"

If you're worried the Nintendo Switch launch in March might be a little too intense for you, why not soothe your nerves with a little Super Mario Run? It's coming to Android in March, too.

Super Mario Run came to iOS in December. It's a great running game and it performed quite well in the App Store, though there's been a lot of pushback against its $10 USD price tag.

Super Mario Run Hits 50 Million Downloads, Launches Friendly Run Mode [Updated]

Nintendo of Japan tweeted Super Mario Run will hit Google Play in March (via Nintendolife). You can pre-register for the game, too.

Going by the game's description on Google Play, it looks like Nintendo's sticking to the "free-to-start" formula that drew so much criticism on the App Store. If Nintendo has any plans to change its monetization method for Super Mario Run, it's not happening soon.

And if you're an Android user who grew tired of waiting for Super Mario Run, cheer up: You'll be getting first crack at Fire Emblem Heroes.
