First we had Miitomo. Then Pokemon Go. Now Nintendo has brought its most iconic mascot to mobile with Super Mario Run (opens in new tab). The iOS-exclusive (for now) game is popping up on the App Store, and already Twitter is losing it. The running theme for those who have grabbed a copy is to take a picture of the game's landing page...

It's not showing up for everyone though, which has led to some feelings of confusion and/or frustration.
App Store be like "Thank you, Eric! But #SuperMarioRun is in another App Store!"December 15, 2016
Maybe Nintendo only released a few copies of #SuperMarioRun and now they're sold out. 😁 (impossible but not when Nintendo is involved)December 15, 2016
*checking my phone for the 325th time to see if #SuperMarioRun is finally available* pic.twitter.com/bhNYtKNwtHDecember 15, 2016
Looking for #SuperMarioRun today. pic.twitter.com/8koCNLnsCSDecember 15, 2016
Don't forget to make room for it on your phone and get rid of all those unnecessary space-takers. Like family and faith.
Need to make room on my phone for #SuperMarioRun. *deletes pictures & videos of kids and precious family memories. Worth it.December 15, 2016
Time to make some room for Super Mario run! #smr #SuperMarioRun pic.twitter.com/uDdy39LQbaDecember 15, 2016
Not everyone is thrilled with the free to try, $10 to unlock business model though.
The worlds are really short so Nintendo wants to you to pay $10 for 6 short worlds no thank you #SuperMarioRunDecember 15, 2016
Played #SuperMarioRun up until they asked me to pay for levels. pic.twitter.com/mXNi9dpFzhDecember 15, 2016
Downloaded #SuperMarioRun not a bad game, not paying to play the rest of the levels thoughDecember 15, 2016
Already beat the first 3 levels and I'm not paying $10 for the rest of the game. Time to delete it already. #SuperMarioRunDecember 15, 2016
But those who do like it are happy to keep playing.
