We reported last week that Nintendo’s highly popular Dr. Mario has received a new update that introduced a bunch of new features and improvements. Well, it looks like Nintendo is not finished enhancing the gameplay of Dr. Mario World. The reason why we are saying that is because Nintendo has published a new update that is available to download via OTA (over the air) channels. With that said, let’s go ahead and take a look at all the improvements that the new update introduces
Dr. Mario World 1.3.1 Update
The first thing that we want to mention about the new Dr. Mario World update is the fact that it sports the 1.3.1 version number and that it is rolling out via over the air channels. This means that all Dr. Mario World fans who keep their smartphones connected to Wi-Fi are eligible to access the update and all the improvements that it brings.
The highlight of the new update is the fact that it introduces a Daily Booster stage. This is a new level that can be played every day by Dr. Mario World fans who are looking for new challenges. To make things even better, the update also introduces a new item called the boomerang. The new item is available only in the Daily Booster stage.
The APK Alternative
We also want to not that eager fans of the mobile game can manually download and install the update in order to avoid having to wait for it to arrive via over the air channels. This can be done by downloading and installing the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit).
Now that we have checked out everything there is to know about the “goodies” that Dr. Mario World’s latest update introduces, let’s go ahead and take a look at the top features that the game offers as listed on the official Google Play Store page.
