If you enjoy games like Bejeweled where you match gems of similar colors to “clear” a space, then you might have played games like Dr. Mario in the past. If you enjoyed the game, then you might be pleased to learn that Nintendo has since announced a new Dr. Mario game that will be coming onto iOS and Android devices next month.
Dubbed Dr. Mario World, this is a game that seems to be pretty similar in concept to the original. According to Nintendo’s description of the game, “Match capsules with viruses and watch them disappear! Simply match three objects of the same color vertically or horizontally to clear them. Take your time, because each puzzling stage’s configuration of viruses must be cleared using a limited number of capsules.”
While it might seem like a single-player game, Nintendo has also announced that there will be support for challenging other players in a one-on-one mode. The game itself will be free to download, but there will be in-app purchases that are optional. Nintendo also notes that it will also require a persistent internet connection, so you can’t play it offline.
The game is currently set for a release on the 10th of July and you can actually go ahead and pre-order it either via the App Store for iOS devices or the Play Store if you’re using Android.
