Get your banana peels and your Bob-ombs because Mario Kart is coming to a phone near you, but there is a catch. Nintendo revealed that a Mario Kart mobile game will be available for phones and it will be titled Mario Kart Tour. Nintendo’s most popular franchise will come to phones, but there are a lot of questions.
We do know that Mario Kart Tour is coming to iPhone and Android devices. Currently, Nintendo has only made three mobile games, which include Super Mario Run (iOS/Android), Fire Emblem Heroes (iOS/Android), and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (iOS/Android). But we don’t know the price of the exciting upcoming video game or if it will be a freemium video game. Super Mario Run was a freemium game that offered several levels for free and then charged $10 for the full game. Nintendo said Super Mario Run was “less of a moneymaker for Nintendo than might have been expected.”
Nintendo did not divulge whether the game would offer an online multiplayer option. However, the title suggests that it would. The game will most likely allow players to battle each other in various circuits. We also don’t know the exact release date for Mario Kart Tour. We only know that Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach will hit mobile devices during the next financial year, which is sometime between April 1, 2018, and March 31, 2019. That’s a massive window, let’s hope it’s sooner rather than a year from now.
