Like any good auto-running platformer, Super Mario Run has a number of characters for the player to unlock. Over the years, the Mario games have built a cast of memorable characters, so it’s good to see them here. Some of these characters are fairly easy to get, while others will take time before they become playable.
Mario’s slimmer and floaty brother is one of the harder characters to get in the game. If players want him, they will have to go to the Mushroom Kingdom and purchase a building called Luigi’s House. Naturally, this unlocks Luigi, making him playable in all of the modes. Luigi’s House only becomes available when the player has collected 150 green and purple toads in Toad Rally.
Unlocking Yoshi is fairly similar to Luigi but has less grinding. Players have to purchase Yoshi’s House from the Mushroom Kingdom to get Mario’s disposable friend. To get the house, players will need to collect 30 red toads and 30 yellow toads in Toad Rally.
One of the pluckiest characters in the series, Toad, is the easiest character to unlock in the game. All players have to do is connect Super Mario Run to their My Nintendo account. This shouldn’t be a big problem for Nintendo fans, while newer fans will just have to make a new account. According to Shack News, Toad is actually a bit faster than Mario himself.
Insert ?the princess is in another castle? joke here. The love of Mario’s mushroom-themed life can be used in the game. Mobile gamers have to beat the World Tour mode so they can unlock her. It shouldn’t take too much time unless the players are hardcore and want to get every little thing.
Toadette might be the hardest character to unlock in the entire game. If players want to play as this character, they will have to purchase the Toadette House from Mushroom Kingdom. However, players will need 200 red toads, 200 blue toads and 200 green toads in Toad Rally Mode.
Super Mario Run is available now on iOS devices. The Android version of the game will come out next year. To those wondering, Mario is the default character.
