Super Mario Run Won’t Work Offline

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?
