This past summer, Pokemon Go generated a mobile gaming craze, and now the excitement is building once again as Nintendo has announced a launch date for Super Mario Run which will be available on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. You can download the game from the App Store on December 15. An android version will be released in 2017. The app is free to download, but only the first four levels are free. After that, you will need to pay $9.99 to unlock the remaining levels. Many blind and visually impaired gamers have had a great deal of success playing Nintendo games by using sound to navigate the game environment. Hopefully, Super Mario Run will be a game that the blind can play.
