Like how most of the Super Mario games have been in the past, this particular game introduces the game app the mustachioed plumber into iPhone this coming December, which is the perfect time people are celebrating the holidays. This is following the years of anticipation that brings together the iconic characters of the Kyoto-based company with the mobile gaming concept. This is a perfect recipe for success.
