Nintendo Announce Upcoming Dr Mario Mobile Game | eTeknix

Nintendo had some good news and bad news on Thursday for iOS and Android gamers. The bad news, which isn’t really that bad, is the new Mario Kart mobile game will be delayed until this summer. The good news is that Nintendo is bringing Dr. Mario to your phone in a new game called Dr. Mario World.

The action puzzle game is designed specifically for iPhones and Android devices. If you’re not familiar with Dr. Mario, it has a Tetris-style falling-block layout in which you maneuver different colored capsules to kill off viruses.

The first Dr. Mario game was released in 1990 for the NES, with new versions and sequels released for the Super NES, Nintendo 64, Wii U, Game Boy and Nintendo 3DS.
