Major Super Mario Run Update Has Been Released

While Super Mario Run was launched with a ton of fanfare considering that this would be the first time that Mario would be arriving on mobile devices, it's safe to say that interest in the game quickly fizzled due to a number of reasons, such as the gameplay which wasn't like what many had thought Mario would be like, and the price of $10 which many felt was rather hefty just to unlock all of its content.

However the good news is that if you were holding out on purchasing Super Mario Run, Nintendo has [recently released an update for the game] that the company had previously promised. The price has been temporarily reduced by 50% which means that it is now a bit more affordable than before, but note that this is a temporary price reduction as the price of the game will be going back to normal levels on the 12th of October.

If there was one main criticism that many gamers had when Super Mario Run was launched was its price tag. Sure, the game was free up to a certain extent, but gamers who wanted more content and features would have to fork out $10 for everything, which as far as mobile games are concerned is pricey.

However the good news is that if you've been holding out on purchasing the game, Nintendo has announced that from the 29th of September until the 12th of October, Super Mario Run will be discounted and have its price slashed by 50%, meaning that the game will only cost you $5 if you were to purchase it within that particular time period.

The car they used was a specially honed (deep breath) WRX STI Type RA NBR Special, and it proved to be good for a 6:58.9 lap around the Nordschleife, in the hands of Richie Stanaway.

The record car was built by Prodrive, and it consists of a 2017 WRX STI with a full roll cage, fitted with a WRC specification two-liter turbo engine that produces more than 600 horsepower thanks to its 75mm intake and 25 psi of boost.
