Nintendo Announces 'Mario Kart Tour'; Title Coming To Mobile Devices

Nintendo-Mario-Kart-1

Nintendo Switch's Sales to Customers Are Over 13 Million Units; SNES Classic at 4 Million Units

Super Mario Run also works on the Apple TV, which means you might be able to play Mario Kart on your TV without buying a Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo has a large roster of characters it can use in Mario Kart Tour, and we expect the roster will be largely similar to the line-up used in recent mainline Mario Kart entries. Nintendo's first mobile game was Miitomo, a social-networking game for both of the popular operating systems.

Yep, Mario Kart for mobile is finally coming, meaning you'll be slip-streaming and turbo drifting from the comfort of your phone by the end of the fiscal year.

It's second mobile game was more successful, not surprising considering it was a Mario title. There have been reports about a Legend of Zelda mobile game as well. One of the developers that could potentially become one of Nintendo's new partners is GungHo, the creator of "Puzzles & Dragons".

Nintendo's announcement was left very vague.

Mario Kart Tour is the first Mario Kart game for smartphones. The mobile version will be called Mario Kart Tour.

Nintendo also hinted that its "Project Labo", a set of cardboard toys that users assemble and interact with by attaching parts of the Switch console, wouldn't be the last of its kind. Talking about this form, there will be a selection of classic games in Switch Online.

There's now no word on whether the mobile version of Mario Kart will be free-to-play. Boosting the winning streak further, a paid online service will soon get launched possibly in the month of September 2018. These prices are listed on Nintendo's official website. I get that Nintendo's past library really could make that cool to play the games for free, but do you want to be put on a time limit for their games? Titles like Super Mario Bros. 3, Dr. Mario, and Balloon Fight. As the name suggests, Mario Kart Tour is likely to maintain most of the basic features such as letting players race in go-karts and different environments.
