Mario Arrives To Mobile: What Does This Mean For The Industry?

At the Apple event last September 7 in California, USA, Nintendo chief game designer Shigeru Miyamoto announced to the world that Mario would be arriving to the iOS this coming December 2016, with an Android version right behind sometime in 2017. The Mario game comes in the form of a 2D endless runner titled Super Mario Run in which the famed plumber will be set in his familiar platformer world, but only he’s automatically running to the right side. The game can be played with only one hand, albeit with a lot of discomfort if played in the much bigger iPad.

Spotify’s curated playlists try to offer a little something for everyone. Are you looking for music that will help you sleep, run, or wallow in your own misery? There’s a Spotify-created playlist for that. So it’s not surprising that the service would suggest some music for people to turn on while they’re playing video games — but it is shocking just how bad those playlists are, and how hard they turn into the most boring, outdated cliches of what people who play video games like — or are like.
