Shigeru Miyamoto is hoping that “older players” will be able to feel the feeling of playing old Nintendo games. He believes that releasing Super Mario Run on mobile devices will introduce Mario to a whole new audience.

“I feel very lucky, because there are a lot of people in Japan making characters and games that become popular in Japan,” Miyamoto said. “So I feel fortunate to be able to bring Mario to an audience around the world. And now with the reach of smart devices, we can bring Mario to an entire generation of kids, and hopefully be able to recapture those older players who played when they were younger and remind them how much fun it is to play a Nintendo game.”
