Super Mario Run will receive its "biggest update ever" later this week, according to a sneak peek shared on the App Store this weekend.

A new gameplay mode called Remix 10 will include a set of 10 super-short sections from Super Mario Run's existing levels in quick succession. The stages are remixed with each attempt, with rainbow-colored bonus medals throughout.

Remix 10 has no Game Over screen, and even if you fail to complete a level, you'll just proceed to the next one without any penalty. This means new players can familiarize themselves with a variety of different levels easily and experts can attempt to collect every bonus medal for a perfect rating.

Finishing stages and collecting medals in Remix 10 mode gives players the chance to collect new items to decorate their Mushroom Kingdom, and eventually rescue the newly added character Princess Daisy.

Once rescued, Princess Daisy can be used as a playable character in all of Super Mario Run's other gameplay modes.

Daisy's special ability is to perform a double jump, opening up a brand new way to beat the stages you find trickiest, collect the coveted black coins, or race against other players in Toad Rally.

Super Mario Run will gain a brand new world called World Star, which has nine new levels that are unlocked once players have finished all of the existing stages in the six worlds of the World Tour.

These new levels are filled with new enemies, gameplay mechanics, and of course include pink, purple, and black coin-collecting challenges. Nintendo is promising surprises for even the most seasoned Super Mario Run players in this one.

The update will also allow Super Mario Run to be played while listening to any music in the background, rather than the game soundtrack only.

The update will be available on the App Store [Direct Link] on Friday, September 29, and on the same day, the $9.99 in-app purchase that unlocks the full game will be discounted by 50 percent for two weeks.

About the Game

Super Mario Run is a runner designed for one-handed gameplay. Mario runs forward automatically as players tap to jump, collect coins, pounce on Goombas, avoid obstacles, and reach the flagpole at the end of each course before the timer runs out. In the end, Mario must rescue Princess Peach from the infamous Bowser.

(Thanks, Jesse L.!)

Nintendo, let me play it on a plane and I will gladly pay full price (remove the internet piracy check).

Bonus, release an Apple TV version and I will pay again.

Does it still require a live network connection to work? I'm happy to pay full price, but won't play a game that calls home to check if I'm a thief or not...

I don't know if anyone of you knows this, but it requires an internet connection. Just thought someone should finally mention it.

This game just sits on my device never getting played, because the time I most want to play it (on the morning rail commute) is the time when my internet connection is worst. It really chaps my backside that this game requires an internet connection to play. Actually, this article has reminded me - I meant to delete Super Mario Run.
