    Super Mario Run's "biggest update ever" has arrived one day early, with many players noticing the version 3.0.4 update is available to download as of this morning. One of the biggest new additions is "Remix 10," which lets players run through 10 super-short courses in a row to try to find and add Daisy -- the new playable character -- to their roster.

    There's also new full-size courses in the game, inhabiting "World Star," including a forest, a ship, and an airship armada. New customization items can be earned from playing Remix 10, and the game has been tweaked so that Toad Rally won't pit you against players whose Toad population is "significantly different" from your own.

    Nintendo has also added a subtle visual detail, giving Mario and his playable friends a pair of headphones any time you listen to your own music while playing the game. With the new update, Super Mario Run [Direct Link] is 50 percent off its full price of $9.99 from today until October 12, meaning you can unlock all six worlds for $4.99.

    The game is still free-to-start and lets you play the first world for free, with the in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the game's content.

    I thought it was a glitch, but I'm glad we don't have to wait any longer!

    £4.99 is a steal.

    A shame it still requires a continuous internet connection to play - must rule out a lot of potential purchasers..

    In before the deluge of ‘online only?’ complaints…

    The game’s new Remix 10 mode is lots of fun to play!

    Love the quality of this app.

    Does this still require internet to play? I downloaded it when it came out last year but deleted it due to it not being playable when I am flying often for work.

    Two things:
    #1 - It's always struck me as a bit odd that Princess Daisy isn't a Disney character, but a Nintendo character, while Disney also has a Daisy, Daisy Duck.

    #2 - Good to see that Nintendo is equally clueless with how to number versions on both iOS and Switch. (Major version 3.0.4?)

    Is it just me or is it incredably annoying toplay Mario constantly running? I grew up in the 80s with the original 3. Mario fan ever since, every game I played. They all allow you go up up down, BACKWard and forward, like how any decent human being should be allowed to play Mario!

    That kind of freedom of movement is good for tactile buttons but not for touchscreens.

    Great! Now how do I buy it while I wait for the iPhone X? (I don't have an iPhone.) Can I buy in app purchases via iTunes?

    Huh? They were created 40 years apart and only share a name. (Common name at that for certain generations.)

    I still maintain that this game is the worst thing to ever happen to games, Mario, or iOS gaming.

    My 6-year-old obliterated this game because of how ridiculously easy it is. All of the difficulty and challenge that used to be present in games (like Mario of old)...that is what made them fun. They've taken all the fun out, and turned it into an idiot proof 1 button masher.

    I feel the same way. I would like the option to play in landscape mode with two hands.

    Don't buy it until you have the phone. This game is the biggest scam ever released on the App Store and if it were any other indie App it would be rejected for violated App Store rules. This game gets around all of the normal allowances of the App Store (where you can buy an App and redownload it anywhere, or unlock content via In-App purchase and restore it later on the same or other device). They've found a way to make you re-buy the same game on EVERY device (unprecedented!) and Apple somehow allows it.

    online only kills the game. Can't play when on a flight or in a subway.

    Try Goblin Sword. That game is a phenomenal platformer.

    Also, Daisy Duck is needy, manipulative and high maintenance while Princess Daisy is more independent.

    Also, when did they change the inability to redownload the IAP? A quick Google search shows screenshots of people doing just that with the ios version Super Mario Run.
