Fans of one of Nintendo's signature characters should brace themselves for the pending release of the new mobile game for iOS.

The Thursday debut of Super Mario Run will also mark the first time Mario will officially appear in a mobile game. Nintendo enthusiasts and Apple users might recall the game’s imminent arrival when it was announced during Apple’s S iPhone 7 launch event in September. Leading up to its highly anticipated debut, Mario has appeared almost exclusively on the Nintendo platforms, Forbes reported Wednesday.

The new game is set to launch around the globe and will be available to download through Apple’s iOS system. Users will need to have iOS 8.0 to download. Android users will have to wait to receive their versions when they debut through the system sometime early in the New Year, according to Gadgets360. A trial version can be downloaded for free but fans are going to have to cough up $10 to play the full version. The game will also require an internet connection to better “enhance” the features and user experience, according to a statement from Nintendo via CNet.

“Online connectivity allows us to offer a variety of features and services that enhance the play experience. Super Mario Run is not a static experience, but rather one that players can continue to return to again and again to enjoy something new and unexpected,” the statement read.

Those playing the game will be able to use an internet connection to access “other users’ play data and scores,” Nintendo said. Players would also be able to participate in special limited-time game events that would offer new and fresh obstacles and rewards.

The game is 1.4 MB and will be available in multiple languages, including Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese, according to the Apple Store.

Players can expect the game to truly look and play like the original Nintendo game that first launched in the early ‘80s. They can also look forward to various modes, including Toad Rally, where players can compete against their friends or other players, and World Tour, which lets players tour caverns, haunted houses, castles and more.
