The Super Mario Run Android version is sure to follow after the release of the iOS version. The Super Mario Run for the iOS is going to be launched this December 15.
Super Mario Run Android
The Super Mario Run for the Android was confirmed by Nintendo before. However, Nintendo has decided to focus on the iOS version first for various valid reasons. First of all, despite the fact that Android users make up more than half of smartphone users worldwide, there are more iOS users in Japan.
Considering the fact that Nintendo is a Japanese company, it is expected that their games are launched locally first, before being released worldwide. This translates to a better market and more initial profits for the company. Which is necessary in order to fund more ports for the game.
Another main reason is the stability of the iOS. Android has a reputation for being somewhat unstable, which would definitely require more time to make adjustments. It would be easier to make a stable iOS version first, then just port it to the android later on.
Other Nintendo mobile games already have their respective android versions, such as Miitomo and Pokemon Go, which had also turned into a fad. Some expect that Super Mario Run could probably even surpass Pokemon Go in terms of popularity once it has been also released on android.
Super Mario Run Release Date for Android
Since there are still no official word regarding the release date for the android version, based on estimates by The Sun and Tech.Mic, Super Mario Run Android would most likely be out by 2017 of March. Around the same time as the confirmed released of the Nintendo Switch.
