It’s gone a little quiet on the side of Nintendo’s smartphone games, after the hubbub that was generated last year with Pokemon Go – admittedly not actually from Big N – Super Mario Run, and then Fire Emblem Heroes. It’s a good to see that they’ve not forgotten about iOS and Android though, even with the continuing success of Switch.
Released yesterday, the Remix 10 update brings a bunch of features, with the main one being the Remix 10 mode, adding some short and sweet courses for you to try and race through in order to rescue Princess Daisy. She’s a new playable character as well, with a double-jump ability that opens up a few new possibilities.
Outside of this, there’s some more new courses elsewhere in the game, and you can now listen to music from your phone in game, which will see Mario and friends pop on a set of headphones to listen along with you.
While free to play, you have to buy the main content after the first world which opens up a bunch of other worlds to play through. That single transaction is now half price until 12th October, down from $9.99/£9.99 to $4.99/£4.99
Here’s the patch notes from the iOS store:
Remix 10: Super Mario Run courses done short and sweet!
In Remix 10, you’ll challenge 10 very short courses in a row. Daisy is lost somewhere along the way, so if you play enough courses you’ll be able to find her! You’ll also be able to play some extra Bonus Games and a Super Bonus Game to get various buildings for your kingdom as you run through this mode.
Even more fun with World Star!
There are some new courses to explore, including a forest, a ship packed with coins, and a whole airship armada. Each course adds a whole new level of fun!
Daisy, a new playable character, is here, and she brought a double-jump skill with her!
If you play through enough Remix 10 courses, Princess Daisy of Sarasaland will join your group of friends. Her double-jump ability lets her jump while she’s already midair!
Listen to your favorite music with the music-play feature!
Now you can listen to music stored on your device while playing Super Mario Run. Mario and his friends will wear headphones when this feature is turned on! Find some music that will get you pumped to run some courses!
New buildings for Kingdom Builder mode
You may earn brand-new buildings from the Bonus Games in Remix 10. Try to get as many as you can!
The way opponents are selected for Toad Rally has been adjusted. There is now less of a chance you’ll play against someone whose Toad population is significantly different from yours.
