At Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus event last year, a number of significant announcements were made. One that was not Apple focused, however, was Nintendo revealing a new mobile game called Super Mario Run.

The title launched on iTunes at the end of last year, but an Android version has been absent. That wait should not be too much longer though, as Nintendo Japan confirmed via Twitter that an Android option will arrive in the Google Play store in March.

With two more titles on the horizon from Nintendo for 2017, it's clear the company is continuing with its plan to create more mobile games.
