Super Mario Run's "biggest update ever" has arrived one day early, with many players noticing the version 3.0.4 update is available to download as of this morning. One of the biggest new additions is "Remix 10," which lets players run through 10 super-short courses in a row to try to find and add Daisy -- the new playable character -- to their roster.

super mario run update early
There's also new full-size courses in the game, inhabiting "World Star," including a forest, a ship, and an airship armada. New customization items can be earned from playing Remix 10, and the game has been tweaked so that Toad Rally won't pit you against players whose Toad population is "significantly different" from your own.

Nintendo has also added a subtle visual detail, giving Mario and his playable friends a pair of headphones any time you listen to your own music while playing the game. With the new update, Super Mario Run [Direct Link] is 50 percent off its full price of $9.99 from today until October 12, meaning you can unlock all six worlds for $4.99.

The game is still free-to-start and lets you play the first world for free, with the in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the game's content.

Don't buy it until you have the phone. This game is the biggest scam ever released on the App Store and if it were any other indie App it would be rejected for violated App Store rules. This game gets around all of the normal allowances of the App Store (where you can buy an App and redownload it anywhere, or unlock content via In-App purchase and restore it later on the same or other device). They've found a way to make you re-buy the same game on EVERY device (unprecedented!) and Apple somehow allows it.
I have it on 4 devices in my household and only paid for it once.

Two things:
#1 - It's always struck me as a bit odd that Princess Daisy isn't a Disney character, but a Nintendo character, while Disney also has a Daisy, Daisy Duck.
Huh? They were created 40 years apart and only share a name. (Common name at that for certain generations.)
