Mario Kart Tour promises the looming sense of dread that a red shell is after you – on the go!
Yesterday, Nintendo announced that its latest mobile offering will hit smartphones on September 25, 2019. This is Nintendo’s seventh mobile game, following Miitomo, Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Dragalia Lost, and Dr. Mario World.
The free-to-start phone game will include classic tracks like Rainbow Road and Waluigi Pinball. Other courses draw inspiration from real-life locations. One of the trailers, released today, shows off iconic real-world locations like the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and Times Square.
Additionally, Mario Kart Tour boasts classic Kart characters like Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Toad, Donkey Kong. The trailer shows Mario without a hat and, later, in a suit. As a result, it’s fair to bet that Tour will probably offer customizable outfits. Nintendo has taken a heavy-handed approach to monetising its mobile games in the past. As a result, costumes are likely one area where they’ll be racing to make a buck.
Mario Kart Tour originally had a March release date, before a delay to summer (and, now, this slip to the fall). But, with two trailers trumpeting the new date, it seems Mario Kart Tour really should hit the streets this fall.
