I know, it's been a while since Super Mario Run reared its head on Pocket Gamer but three months after its iOS debut, it's finally on its way to Android this week.

The curious auto-runner was Nintendo's first entry into the mobile world and created quite a stir between critics and consumers alike. Some absolutely loved it, while others couldn't quite get on board with its price point vs. the amount of game that came with it.

There's no denying that it wasn't nicely polished with a good variety of difficulty, but its hype quickly filtered out because once the game was completed there was practically nothing left to do.

According to Nintendo's tweet, however, there's an update coming to iOS the same day that the Android version is releasing, so perhaps it may breathe a little life back into the game for iOS users.

Super Mario Run will be hitting Google Play this Thursday, March 23rd for £9.99/$9.99.
