Nintendo has announced which of their next IPs they’ll be bringing to mobile, and it’s everyone’s favourite Kart racer, Mario Kart!
The upcoming mobile title will be called Mario Kart Tour and will be launching by the end of March 2019 – basically the end of the 2018 financial year, it could however arrive before then. Unfortunately there are very few details around the upcoming title.
In a Tweet, Nintendo wrote, “The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near.”

Looking at Nintendo’s last handful of mobile titles, there’s a chance that Mario Kart Tour will be free-to-play with microtransactions, or like with Super Mario Run it could be a free-to-try game with a premium price to unlock the full game.
I guess we’ll have to wait until the end of this year before we have more information on this new mobile game.
