Nintendo America works in partnership with LINE Corporation and NHN Entertainment for the launch of a new mobile game entitled 'Dr. Mario World.' The game is set to launch sometime during the summer of this year, with an initial global drop in 60 different countries for both Android and iOS users. It follows the original game 'Dr. Mario' from the 90s created for the 'Nintendo Entertainment System' to combat the popularity of Tetris during the time.
The original concept was a memory game, as players would understand different viruses and match it up with colored pills. The Dr. Mario World mobile game will be free of charge and can be downloaded directly for in-app purchases. The game follows the familiar Nintendo character Mario sporting a white coat instead of his usual overalls.
