Apps becoming more expensive due to currency fluctuations is nothing new in the mobile market – and the same is now starting to happen in the UK, although on a much larger scale. Following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, the Pound has dropped dramatically in value, and as a result, Apple has decided to raise the raise prices on the App Store across the board, by about 25%.

One of the affected titles is Super Mario Run – in the UK, it now costs £9.99 to unlock all of the game’s levels after the initial demo, up from the previous £7.99.

It is not yet known what the game’s price will be on the Google Play Store once Super Mario Run launches on Android devices in March.

Nintendo UK has reduced the prices of several Nintendo Switch games, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and 1-2-Switch.

The reduces prices for each game were likely done to make them more in-line with the prices in the US, as the original UK prices were the subject of some controversy. The newly adjusted prices come in at £44.99 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, £34.99 for 1-2-Switch and £49.99 for Arms. Additionally, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was previously discounted in a similar manner to £49.99.
