Nintendo president ,Tatsumi Kimishima, the upcoming Super Mario mobile game will be as popular as Pokemon Go.

Speaking To Bloomberg, Kimishima revealed that Pokemon Go's success has paved the way for the company's next mobile game.

"There's no doubt that more people are using smartphones to play games," Kimishima said. "And as this time we're using Mario, that's a very important intellectual property for us. And that's what Miyamoto's team is working on now: making sure it spreads out just as quickly as Pokemon Go."

Kimishima also revealed that more than 20 million people have registered to receive notifications when Super Mario Run releases late this year. Kimishima said user will be able to download the game for free, play a portion of it, and then pay a fixed price if you want to access the full game.

"[A]nd then play it over and over as many times as you want without having to pay anything extra," he continued. "And that should give peace of mind that kids can play it. And we're hoping that will help it become more popular."

Super Mario Run will be available in around 150 counties
