I’ve Got To Run! developer is cutting off their price in honor of late Nintendo President

The developer behind the running game I’ve Got To Run is cutting off their price big time, for both Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U version. I’ve Got To Run! Complete Edition for Nintendo 3DS will be priced at $0.10 or 10 cents and its original price of $4.99 while I’ve Got To Run! for Nintendo Wii U will be priced for $0.01 or 1 cent from $1.99 price tag.

The I’ve Got To Run big time sale is in honor for late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata and the proceeds of the game will go to Cancer Research.

Here’s the statement from I’ve To Run! developer Syrenne McNulty of 4 Corner Games

“Hello. As some of you may have seen, I’ve Got to Run! (Wii U eShop) and I’ve Got to Run: Complete Edition! (Nintendo 3DS eShop) are $0.01 and $0.10 respectively in North America. I just wanted to take a brief second to explain why. Nintendo was not only the reason I got into making games, but they were the reason that I grew to love games as a passion as a kid. From Mario to Zelda to Metroid.”

“Nintendo’s games have always had an immediate appeal. I’ve tried to apply many of Nintendo’s own game philosophies as well. The late President of Nintendo Co., Ltd, Mr. Satoru Iwata, once said that “Games are to be one thing. Fun. Fun for everyone.” While games can be more than fun – they can make you think, make you cry, and bring people together, the core of every game should be an enjoyable experience. It is with this statement in mind that until 9 AM PT on July 18th, both of my games on Nintendo’s platforms are available at their lowest ever prices – and the lowest prices on the eShop period.”

“I want to completely remove the barrier to entry for enjoying a quick game. I hope you pick it up, and if they bring you even one minute of happiness, I’ll feel I’ve done my job. I appreciate all of your support, and hope that my humble games can bring a smile to your face in these tough times.”

Much respect to the developer of the game, not because of the price cut but for honoring Satoru Iwata, donating to cancer research and having respect and passion to the video game industry.
