So, in the initial footage of Super Mario Run, we only ever saw Mario playing the game. In the final gameplay trailer, it was revealed that Yoshi, Toad and Luigi would be joining in on the fun. In the final version of the game, there’s actually six characters who you can unlock through a variety of methods. The characters all add depth to the game as they control quite differently.
HOW TO PLAY AS MARIO
Thankfully, Mario is unlocked from the start of the game.
HOW TO PLAY AS TOAD
Toad is definitely the easiest character to unlock. All you have to do is link your My Nintendo account to the game at any point and collect your reward from the My Nintendo menu. He will then appear in the gift box on the Kingdom Builder page.
