Nintendo’s premium mobile game featuring everyone’s favorite plumber celebrates its anniversary!
A year’s worth of running
Endless runner game Super Mario Run has just turned one year older today.
In line with this, Nintendo is celebrating the game’s milestone by giving away some freebies.
The celebration kicked off with an anniversary event at 10PM PT. Players were advised to login at the abovementioned time. Nintendo further informs Super Mario Run players to login on the app daily for multiple events.
The mobile game provided a very unique anniversary gift to its community. Players will receive a 1st anniversary statue in Super Mario Run. The statue comes in gold with laurel leaves on both borders of the plaque. It has a red ribbon at the bottom, a crown on top, and a huge number ” 1″ embossed at the center. The bottom part reads “anniversary award.”
Not a fan of Super Mario Run? You can still get a gift from the event, especially if you’re playing Animal Crossing!
Pocket campers can parade around the campsite by wearing Mario’s hat, also known as the big bro’s hat. Simply login to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, claim the hat, and wear it. Now you can say “It’s a me, Mario!”
