Nintendo announced the mobile Mario Kart Tour back in February 2018, promising to release the game before March 2019.
What is known
On the official Nintendo Mobile YouTube channelThere was a video demonstrating the Mario Kart Tour gameplay. Unlike other mobile races, karting with Mario is launched in portrait mode, and the game itself is adapted for one-handed control. It seems that in Nintendo this format is considered the most correct, because the latest mobile projects of the company came out only in this form.
Like the "big version" for 3DS, Mario KartTour for Android and iOS will be available characters of the Nintendo universe. They will drive on tracks based on locations from the real world, as well as fabulous places from the Big N games. Bonuses and traps for enemies will also remain.
The game will appear on Google Play and the App Store on September 25, where pre-registration is already available.
