Nintendo’s second-ever mobile phone video game starring Super Mario is almost here.

The video game is “Dr. Mario World,” and it’s a free-to-play puzzle video game based upon the long line of “Dr. Mario” puzzle video games from Nintendo. Like previous video games in the series, “Dr. Mario World” has gamers matching trios of the exact same color. As the medical professional, you’re sending out tablets versus bacteria, matching groups of 3 to eliminate the bacteria.

The video game is set to show up on both iOS and Android gadgets on July 10, Nintendo stated on Tuesday.


Like previous Nintendo video games on mobile phones, “Dr. Mario World” was established in partnership with third-party partners– in this case, it’s the Japanese social networks business Line and the Korean video game advancement studio NHN Home entertainment.

Likewise like previous Nintendo mobile phone video games, “Dr. Mario World” is “complimentary to download with optional in-app purchases.”

A brand-new trailer exposes what that will indicate for gamers– a trio of virtual currencies that feed into each other, among which is paid:

Diamonds are the name of the virtual, paid currency in “Dr. Mario World.”

Gamers can utilize diamonds for a range of things in “Dr. Mario World”– to advance a level if you have actually lost, or to purchase more hearts (which go out as you play and gradually fill up gradually).

It’s a familiar system to anybody who’s hung out with so-called “free-to-play” mobile video games, however it’s brand-new to Nintendo’s mobile phone efforts.

The business’s previous mobile phone video game with Mario, “Super Mario Run,” permitted individuals to download the video game and play the very first couple of levels free of charge– anything beyond that expense a flat cost. Instead of purchasing sets of levels, you paid to open the remainder of the video game. The very first couple of levels acted as a demonstration of sorts.

However the free-to-play puzzle video game market on mobile phones is controlled by the “Sweet Crush” design: Play as long as you desire … up until you struck a paywall that you can either wait to lower or pay to go through. Nintendo is embracing that design with “Dr. Mario World.”
