Less than one week after launching on iOS, Super Mario Run is gaining a new mode.
Friendly Run has been added to Super Mario Run. Think of it as a friendly version of the Toad Rally, letting you challenge a friend in a battle to collect coins and Toads without spending any Rally Tickets.
Because this is a friendly matchup, though, the enemies you defeat, coins you collect, and Toads you earn won’t actually count toward your totals.
Another detail worth noting about Friendly Run is that it can only be played a limited number of times each day. If you haven’t cleared World 1, you can only do one Friendly Run per day. Clearing World 1 will let you play Friendly Run three times per day, and clearing World 2 will let you play five times per day.
This Friendly Mode could be useful for practicing your runs or just for fun challenges with your friends when you don’t feel like spending your hard-earned Rally Tickets. It’s kind of disappointing that you can only play a handful of times each day, but you can still perform runs in Toad Rally if you’ve got enough Rally Tickets.
In other Super Mario Run news, Nintendo confirmed today that the app reached 40 million downloads in just four days.
