Apple and Miyamoto have announced Mario will be heading to iPhones and iPads.

It was revealed at Apple's iPhone 7 launch event that Mario will be arriving on iOS with Super Mario Run.

Speaking at the event, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said
"For the past 30 years, every time Mario has encountered a new platform he has evolved and continued to run towards a new goal. And now Mario is running towards his next goal, iPhone."

Miyamoto presented a traditional-looking Mario title with endless runner elements. Players can tap the screen to jump and hold down for a longer jump. Miyamoto also suggested different power blocks will change up the direction of the automatically moving screen.

A Toad Battle mode was also announced as a competitive endless runner element where players compete in a bid to appease Toads with risky moves. Coins are earned from both parties and a score is tallied by Toadette upon completion.

Miyamoto did not announce when Super Mario Run would launch, but did state that it would be IAP-free, and sold for a single price when it launches later this year. Alongside Super Mario Run, Nintendo will also release a series of Mario Bros themed stickers for the new Messages app in iOS 10.
