Super Mario Run has already become the most downloaded game of all time on the iOS platform. You can easily see Apple users glued to their iPhones enjoying this all time classic. However, if you’re an Android user, you still have no option but to wait as there is yet no official word from Nintendo about the Super Mario Run release on Android. We tried delving into the reasons as to why Nintendo is keeping the Android world bereft of Super Mario Run.
In a recent interview with Mashable, veteran designer Shigeru Miyamoto said that the real reason why the game hasn’t been released on the Android platform is security and fear of piracy.
Miyamoto said, “The security element is one of the reasons that we decided to go with iPhone and iOS first. So this is just — based on the current development environment — a requirement that’s been built into the game to support security and the fact that the three different modes are connecting to the network and interacting with one another.”
It is already quite evident that the Android users are dying to play the Super Mario Run. People have been searching for the Super Mario Run Apk everywhere and as a result thousand of duplicate apps have already come up. People are falling prey to these duplicate apps and more than often these are malware which can severely affect your devices.
Miyamato further said, “Unlike our dedicated game devices, the game is not releasing in a limited number of countries. We’re launching in 150 countries and each of those countries has different network environments and things like that. So it was important for us to be able to have it secure for all users.”
The situation will surely further worsen as the Super Mario Run doesn’t seem to be coming on Android anytime soon and the number of these false apks is bound to increase. We would advise strict caution to all our Android users. Please don’t install any Super Mario apk on your device if you wish to stay safe and let’s hope that Nintendo will soon release the official apk.
