Nintendo's Mario may just hit your phone before Christmas as the gaming company announced that Super Mario Run will be available on iPhones and iPads as early as December 15.

The mobile version of the classic game will cost $9.99 and give players unlimited access to each of the three modes, although there will also be a free version to allow players a chance to check it out. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iTouch devices running iOS 8.0 and will launch in 151 countries next month. There's no word yet on when the game will come to Android devices.
