The doctor will return this summer.
Dr. Mario World is headed to mobile devices this summer in Japan and the United States.
Announced by Nintendo, Dr. Mario World is being co-developed by Nintendo, LINE Corporation and NHN Entertainment.
Dr. Mario World will be free to download with optional in-app purchases and, in addition to Japan and the United States, will release in approximately 60 countries/regions in early summer on iOS and Android.
No further information was given on what to expect from the new title, aside from knowing it will continue Dr. Mario’s tradition of being a puzzle title.
Dr. Mario was originally released for the NES in 1990 and is a falling block game that tasks players with destroying viruses by matching capsules of similar colors.
Dr. Mario has also been a fighter in Super Smash Bros. since Super Smash Bros. Melee, even though he was not a part of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Also, if you are inspired to now play as Dr. Mario in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, be sure to check out our Smash Wiki to be the best doctor you can be.
