Nintendo’s foray into mobile gaming has been limited to date, but the runaway success of Super Mario Run has bolstered their confidence and today they’ve announced that Mario Kart Tour is coming to smartphones.
Nintendo America announced the upcoming game in a couple of tweets which also announced a new Super Mario film is in development that will be animated by Illumination Entertainment – yeah, those Minion movies, as well as the launch of Switch online for their popular console.
The Mario Kart World Tour mobile game will be arriving in March next year, but so far no other details have been released. It will likely be a version of the popular Mario Kart series, though how it will run is anyone’s guess. Here’s the announcement:
