The Mario Run 2.0 Update is coming out this week. An Android version of the 2D platform Runner is also set to release this week on March 23rd. Nintendo has been very secret about not spoiling too many details about the upcoming update.
Today we learned that once the update is available, players will see a new challenge from Bowser. Completing this will allow players to take on World 1-4 without having to pay the $9.99 priced app. Once these levels are finished, new courses will be added to the Toad Rally. Green and Blue Toads will also come to cheer in the free version of the game.
Nintendo doesn’t stop here, as they will also add more items to the Kingdom Builder, such as the Blue Yoshi House. This building will essentially unlock Blue Yoshi in the game.
More details will be released in the next few days. The Update as well as the Android version of the game are set to release on March 23rd. You can currently pre-register for Mario Run on the Google Play market here.
