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.
HOW TO PLAY AS YOSHI
To unlock Yoshi, you’ll need to play enough of Toad Rally to recruit enough toads to unlock Yoshi’s House. Yoshi’s House is definitely the easiest to unlock. You only need to collect 30 Red Toads and 30 Yellow Toads. That won’t take more than an hour.
HOW TO PLAY AS PRINCESS PEACH
To unlock Princess Peach, you’ll need to complete the World Tour mode which consists of 24 levels. This doesn’t take too long at all depending on how quickly you rush through the game. Don’t forget that there’s three sets of five coins to collect for each level to add to replay value.
HOW TO PLAY AS LUIGI
To unlock Luigi, you’ll need to play enough of Toad Rally to recruit enough toads to unlock Luigi’s House. In particular, you’ll need to recruit 150 Green Toads and 150 Purple Toads. That’s definitely going to take a while.
HOW TO PLAY AS TOADETTE
To unlock Luigi, you’ll need to play enough of Toad Rally to recruit enough toads to unlock Toadette’s House. Toadette’s house is definitely going to be the hardest to unlock. You’ll need to collect 200 Red Toads, 200 Blue Toads, 200 Green Toads, 200 Purple Toads and 200 Yellow Toads.
