Super Mario Run will feature three different modes:
- World Tour: Run and jump in style to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches while going through 24 brand-new courses designed for one-handed play!
- Toad Rally: Compete against other players for the highest scores as you gather coins and get cheered on by a crowd of Toads. If you’re impressive enough, the Toads may even come live in your kingdom.
- In order to play Toad Rally, you will need Rally Tickets that you can acquire in a variety of ways, such as clearing worlds or through bonus games in your kingdom.
- Kingdom Builder: Gather coins and create your unique kingdom with buildings and decorations that you acquire with the help of Toads gathered in Toad Rally.
Each mode can be tried out for free, but, in order to get the complete experience, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $9.99.
