Nintendo has dated their latest mobile title Dr. Mario World for iOS and Android devices. The title will be released on mobile devices on July 10th, 2019. You can pre-register for the game right now.
The game will make use of the hearts mechanic where playing a level will use up one heart and after you’ve depleted the hearts you’ll have to wait for them to replenish. It looks like it will take 30 minutes for one heart to replenish, but it’s not clear how many hearts you will have when you’re fully charged. You can also use gems to replenish your hearts instantly. Gems are the premium currency in the game which can be purchased with real world money via micro transactions.
The game is flipping the game upside down. Unlike the previous games where the capsules fell to the bottom of the screen, you will drag and drop the capsules on the screen and then they will slowly glide towards the top of the screen. You can use your finger and guide them into place manually, tapping them to rotate them in place.
In addition to the capsules and viruses there are also other items in the levels like bombs and Koopa shells which do other things like explode viruses or clear rows.
There are also different ‘doctors’ to choose from and unlock. Luigi, Peach, Toad, Bowser, and Yoshi have been so far, but there could be more as the trailer did suggest that there is additional content planned for the game in the future. I’m personally hoping for Rosalina. She’s always my pick.
