Nästa vecka släpps #Super Mario Run till Ios-enheter (Iphone och Ipad), och för att spela måste du ha en aktiv internetuppkoppling. Det gör det svårt att avnjuta #Nintendos smartphone-debut när du exempelvis flyger, och företagets Shigeru Miyamoto förklarar för Mashable att uppkopplingskravet är ett beslut som togs för att göra livet svårare för piratkopierare. Han säger att säkerhet (i betydelsen att stoppa piratkopiering) är skälet till att man valt att satsa på Ios först, och Android senare.

For us, we view our software as being a very important asset for us. And also for consumers who are purchasing the game, we want to make sure that we're able to offer it to them in a way that the software is secure, and that they're able to play it in a stable environment.

We wanted to be able to leverage that network connection with all three of the [Super Mario Run] modes to keep all of the modes functioning together and offering the game in a way that keeps the software secure. This is something that we want to continue to work on as we continue to develop the game.

But actually, 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.

We had thought at one point that it would be nice to have the World Tour [story] mode available standalone, to be able to play without that connection. But then the challenge is when that's operating in a standalone mode, it actually complicates the connection back to the Toad Rally and Kingdom modes. And because those two modes are relying on the network save, we had to integrate the World Tour mode as well.

Super Mario Run släpps på #Apples App Store den 15 december. Vi försöker få loss ett recensionsexemplar för att ge dig ett omdöme så fort som möjligt. En Android-version av Super Mario Run ska dyka upp någon gång nästa år.
