Dr. Mario World, which is Nintendo's next mobile game, will be released on July 10th. Nintendo announced the release date today and also shared the first screenshots and gameplay.
In the game of match-three, you will use capsules to eliminate various viruses. The video below shows the first gameplay and explains how it works. Also in the video, Nintendo talks about Dr. Mario World's mictotransactions, which come in the form of diamonds that you can buy in the game shop. They are available in several allotments, starting with a pack of 20 for 2 USD and going up to 1,050 Diamonds for a price of 70 USD. Diamonds can be used to continue the game, get items and restore stamina. Watch the video below to learn more.
Dr. Mario is not the only star of the game. You can also buy other doctors, including Doctors Peach, Yoshi and Toad, in the game shop (though it's not clear if these extra doctors are sold for real money). Each doctor has a unique skill of his own, which encourages players to acquire them all.
Dr. Mario World was announced by Nintendo in February, when the company only confirmed the existence of the game, but no details about it.
The next Nintendo mobile game after Dr. Mario World is the Mario Kart Tour, which is already in beta testing in various parts of the world.
For a long time, Nintendo refused to offer its popular franchises to mobile devices. However, this changed in 2015 when Nintendo announced that it would develop games for smartphones and tablets. The first of them was Miitomo, followed by Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and so on.
