Super Mario Run requires an internet connection to play


Many Nintendo fans are eagerly awaiting the chance to play Super Mario Run. But a very concerning requirement for the game has just come to light. To play Super Mario Run, you need an internet connection.

Offline gaming is not an option and they do this try and discourage pirating. But this is a bit of an annoying feature, and I hope this might get removed in a future update.

Super Mario Run launches on December 15th for iOS devices. While the game is free, to get the full experience a $9.99 in-app purchase will be needed.
