Nintendo’s secret best mobile game continues to expand its roster. To celebrate the Dr. Mario series’ 30th anniversary, classic 8-bit Dr. Mario has been added as a new character in Dr. Mario World, and he’s free for all players.
Access the game before 10:59 PM PT on August 30 and you’ll receive 8-bit Dr. Mario as a free login bonus. In solo play, 8-bit Dr. Mario is able to eliminate three special viruses when his skill gauge is fully charged, while in multiplayer, he can prevent your opponent from moving half-capsules for four seconds.
8-bit Dr. Mario isn’t the only new character to join the game this week; another Koopaling has also just received his medical degree. Dr. Lemmy is now available through the Staffing feature, and his special skill revolves around barrels. In solo mode, Dr. Lemmy can immediately break 10 barrels in a stage, while in multiplayer, he can hide one of your opponent’s viruses inside a barrel.
