Gamers hoping to take Super Mario Run on the go without a cellular (or mobile WiFi) connection may be disappointed to learn that the game requires an ‘always-on’ internet connection to function.

With its December 15th iOS launch date nearing, those interested in purchasing should be aware of the restrictions that come along with its $10 price tag.

Will the game be on your holiday wish list? Or is this enough to put it permanently on the naughty list until Nintendo reconsiders?

  • Photobomb EastGovnah

    darn. now i cant eat a hamburger without data

    • EarthenWarrior

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • I don’t want to live on this planet anymore

      • SpectralSeraph

        You aren’t, you need data for that

  • I, personally, hate the fact that you MUST be online to keep playing.
    Not useful for people with small data bundles.

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      and it could be a data eater too

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Omg just saw the new English trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.8. Life is meaningless until January 24th

  • Alright that’s the nail in the coffin for me. The gameplay on Jimmy Fallon made me kinda interested but 10$ plus data? Nope nope

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      this game is gonna be a fad for a couple of weeks then die out like most games.

      • Chaos

        The worst part is some people will fork out stupid amounts of money to play the game so the developers will justify the charge.

      • That’s Nintendo’s problem with mobile. Their apps are cool because they are unique and have that Nintendo charm but not enough content to keep players for longer than a month

        • MarioMan

          Unique? In what way? Every aspect of this game has been used in thousands of games already! Nintendo is VERY late in the mobile gaming franchise. Should’ve started jumping in 2 years ago when side running games were more popular and their ideas weren’t recycled just with Nintendo’s name branded on top. Was so excited for this game, but I don’t want to pay $10 and always be using my internet when I open it.

  • Chaos

    What’s the reason for needing an internet connection all the time for the game? Are you constantly playing against other players?

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      theres leaderboards

      • Chaos

        That’s hardly a reason.

      • The Singular Kuppo

        Just because that? Why isnt there an option to turn it off or something like that?

      • -.-, damnit Nintendo

  • Armaggedon16

    Wasn’t the whole point of putting Nintendo games on mobile devices to make their franchises more accessible?

    But then you put a $10 price tag, limit it to iOS devices and make it necessary to have data.

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      its coming to android just later on

      • Why not release on both platforms at the same time? I can understand if they focused on optimizing for iOS first because that was the original plan, but they should have at least had a functional android version as well.

        • Photobomb EastGovnah

          its dumb

          • It’s also a deal with Apple…

          • Photobomb EastGovnah

            oh yeaaaa Apple sure does love deals

      • Armaggedon16

        I didn’t know that,but even then it Doesn’t matter.
        A random person won’t download a $10 game when they can get millions of others for free, only people who’ll get it are die-hard Nintendo fans which is the opposite of what Nintendo wants

  • I really hate how many games are always online nowadays. Well, I hate a lot of triple A stuff in gaming nowadays but the always online stuff kills me the most. The only time a game should need an internet connection is if you are doing something online. Not just playing single player with no other players or extra content

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      im worried about the fire emblem and animal crossing mobile games

      • I really hope they don’t mess those two games up,especially Fire Emblem.After Fates,I just want a good Fire Emblem game again (I don’t hate the game,I just don’t like it and don’t consider it to be all that good)

        • MelloMori

          Honestly I’d star setting my expectations for the FE mobile game low now. I mean we can’t expect much out of it, but certainly not the sort of gameplay as we’re use to.

          As for your feelings of Fates, let’s be completely honest here. While the FE fandom can agree on the objectively good and bad points of any game, nobody can agree with what games are good or bad. Personally I loved fates, I hate FE 9 and honestly until Awakening I felt that FE 7 was going to be he last good entry, and even then I would argue most of what came before it was hot garbage at worst and a reason to get the creator of Fire Emblem off the series at best.

    • Ultron

      Exactly. Shooters and couch coop have been ruined. Even halo that helped keep it alive cut it in favor of fps. It’s so dumb

  • Anyone would like breedject Torkoals? They have 3 egg moves including the important one, Eruption. Quiet nature with probably zero speed.

    • Taum2

      Hey men, are you still ok to provide me some help ?

      • If I randomly catch you and you haven’t gotten help yet, sure! Just post periodically in the latest article as it comes out.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Wait Tsareena learns Play Rough? Gg confirmed best Grass type since Sceptile

    • Only by breeding tho

    • EarthenWarrior

      It still has a total Fire and Flying weakness that can’t be countered by itself

    • Armaggedon16

      The strongest grass move it gets is Trop Kick,which has 70 base power. It also has terrible stats and is pretty much useless.

  • Photobomb EastGovnah
    • EarthenWarrior
    • Nice job,bro.I actually got a Shiny Sandygast from a Wonder Trade last night.Just wanted to share that.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’ll trade you a shiny Misdreavus or Ditto for that

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      it has its HA and 4ivs I think whats the highest the IV judge is

      • SpectralSeraph

        Ivs in what?

        • Photobomb EastGovnah

          im asking when u look at the Judge thing in the PC whats the highest “Best” or “Fantastic”

          • SpectralSeraph

            Best

          • Photobomb EastGovnah

            ok thank u

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I love it, congratulations! 😀

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    Well that’s dumb….I don’t have an iPhone and I can’t say I really care about Marion Run, but that sounds like the dumbest mistake they could have made with it.They’re already forcing people to pay $10 for it and now they’re saying that you can’t play it wherever you are unless you’re using up your data or on WiFi? That seems like it’ll cost them. Maybe not a huge amount as I’m sure people will still download and buy the game, but it certainly does seem like a move that would bring a lot of criticism.

  • Generations episode 16 has dropped on YT!

  • EarthenWarrior

  • Monkeyfuzz

    My Shiny female DBHA Ralts finally hatched! 26 / 31 / 31 / 31 / 31 / 31 IV’s, not perfect but I am very pleased with her ^_^
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b087c64cb1c72e8255873a9a5eb49a7d12fceadbb47b3abdc512f2e356bfc994.jpg

    • Dang, how long did that take

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Too long… I had both 6IV parents so guaranteed 5. I’ve been tired and have a head cold so I’ve been mindlessly breeding for about a week.

        • I don’t think I would have had the patience for that while sick

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I am a very patient creature with not a lot else to occupy my mind :3

          • What set are you going to run on it when it’s evolved?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably Psyshock, Hyper Voice, Will-O-Wisp and Focus Miss.

          • You mean Focus Blast?

    • Chaos

      Ooh…nice. I really like that blue colour on the Shiny Ralts line.

      Did you want Telepathy on it? I find either of the two abilities more useful, but then again depending if singles or doubles…

      Also that’s Gen 6 right?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Thanks, I really just wanted it in Dream Ball. I’ll probably Capsule it to Trace.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I must smash its skull in with a piece of rebar

      That could be a project, get a nice two and a half pole of rebar, get some of thick nuts and either string them with unbreakable twine and wrap it around the head and duct tape it together with hot glue unless maybe I can sodder it together, but once the whole thing is wrapped with nuts I’ll duct tape the entire thing making a club that packs a wallop

      And after that my Jawbreaker in a tube sock

      • Monkeyfuzz

        You mean solder?
        I’ll take this as you congratulating me on my hatch 🙂

        • EarthenWarrior

          I never congratulate anybody, this is a known fact

  • Nickerton

    Hi all. This Mario run is only for apple?

  • SpectralSeraph

    Doing some tests with mons with moves that they should be able to get
    L-Seed Decidueye and Play rough Tapu are insane

    • Monkeyfuzz

      How do you utilise them?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Honestly Play Rough is worthless on them,
      You’re just going to spam its terrain type for more

      And Leech Seed only slows the impending doom Decidueye is beckoning with its piss poor everything

      • TCRowlet

        Decidueye is great.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Says who, it’s slow and has a very exploited Knock Off weakness which becomes apparent with each passing day

          Honestly this thing along with Incineroar got the raw deal in terms of usability outside a main story campaign

          • TCRowlet

            I’d argue Primarina is the worst in Singles. Incineroar will be like a discount Arcanine once it gets Intimidate.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It would be…. if it wasn’t dark fire…. that type is like Ice type tier defensively

          • SpectralSeraph

            Decidueye still can be used though
            Incineroar is just crap

          • Incineroar is actually pretty damn good!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ummmmmm, competitively? Nah boi, not in the slightest

          • Then you just haven’t thought of its potential. Sure it’s speed is shit, but it makes up for it with its bulk and physical attack

          • SpectralSeraph

            I thought of it, the bulk doesn’t matter. Don’t get me wrong, it could have been good… it just got stuck with a REALLY BAD defensive typing

          • True, but still it could have its uses

          • SpectralSeraph

            Outside of just
            GO IN THERE AND TANK A NEUTRAL PHYSICAL HIT
            There are bad weaknesses…. and than there are weaknesses that cripple you
            Being weak to three of the most common types in the game and rocks is not good

          • Monkeyfuzz

            The only weakness it gains from Dark is fighting, which isn’t great. The only other issue is losing resistance to Fairy for neutral damage.

          • SpectralSeraph

            That’s enough to ruin it

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It will still do well in lower tiers.

          • SpectralSeraph

            True… Honestly i think it’s the worst fire type starter

          • Not even close to the worst, it’s not the best but it’s not the worst either

          • SpectralSeraph

            Who’s worse?

          • A male Salandit.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I meant to write worst fire starter

          • Ohhh…

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah…
            I really don’t think there are any worse ones

          • Delphox, I had such high hopes for it, it fell short spectacularly

          • SpectralSeraph

            Delphox is not worse competitively. It was near the top of RU for a long time and actually hits quite damn hard. And with coverage like that,,,,,

          • I meant that though it COULD hit hard, the rest of its stats were pretty bad.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s also really fast which works for it and has a decent attack stat.
            Also Mystic Fire got buffed

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It isn’t my favourite, I still like it though.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I mean competitively
            I can respect you for liking it … i think it looks hideous

          • Monkeyfuzz

            In terms of starters either it or Emboar are weakest to me.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s actually weaker. Emboar is better, it has a better typing defensive, doesn’t have swollen bee hands and….. it’s faster….

        • SpectralSeraph

          Leech seed would be great

          • TCRowlet

            It already suffers from 4 move syndrome. It’d be nice, but it’s not a killer for it not to have it.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It fixes a lot about it though
            I tested it afterall

      • SpectralSeraph

        It doesn’t because of this.. it is actually REALLY bulky with it, it can tank literally almost anything on the special side easy

      • SpectralSeraph

        And play rough is for Koko, he does get a lot of use out of it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Not really just a Stab attack for its stupid fairy half
          It sucks as a physical attacker only having Wild Charge boosted by Electric terrain and that’s it
          It can either run Brave Bird or U-Turn with. Choice Band but it just has a shit physical movepool and Play Rough isn’t happening for a long time

          • SpectralSeraph

            But Play rough is really good on it though, for fairy stab? It’s insane!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    AAARGH WHY IS TYPE: NULL NOT BREEDABLE? I would have used it if not for the lame Gentle nature ffs

    • EarthenWarrior

      Because it’s a artificial weapon?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        So? I want it to breed and I should always get what I want because I give them my money

        • I know you’re being sarcastic but in all honesty, I don’t think giving a bioweapon with the strength to kill the GODS of the Pokemon world the ability to breed would be a good idea

    • Spetsnaz

      soft reset?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Wish I could but I saved the game after I got it lol. My own mistake but I haven’t finished Moon yet so i have a second chance

    • Dude, it’s an artificially created superweapon meant to slay GODS. I don’t think gender would play a factor.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Genderless Pokémon can breed, as can artificial Pokémon (which are largely the genderless ones). My guess I this is purely a lore thing.

        • I meant that since it is an organism that is formed from the imperfectly spliced DNA of varying species, it would not have a proper way to breed with other Pokemon, as its DNA would be irreplicable naturally.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Sure, I just meant Gender wouldn’t be an issue in these games. Ditto could still replicate it. It really is just so that it’s like legendaries.
