I don't even. What is happening. Nintendo just announced that Mario Kart is coming to mobile via a new game titled Mario Kart Tour. Due out sometime before March 2019, we've got loads of time to wildly speculate what this game is going to be about. Judging by Nintendo's other efforts on mobile, I doubt it's going to be anything close to a "full" Mario Kart game, but, stranger things have happened.

I'm wondering if they're going to try to apply the CSR Racing formula to Mario Kart characters? Their mobile portfolio is filled with games that take the core concept of a game and distill it down to its absolute essence. What do you guys think? What's Mario Kart Tour going to be about?

    I would be surprised if it was a full Mario Kart game and it’s more likely that it will be something Nintendo will use to promote their brand and the Switch.

    Definitely Freemium, would be cool if they took the Mario Run approach instead of the Fire Emblem Heroes approach...here's to hoping.

    It takes a corporation to announce a karting game's release in terms of the fiscal year. Kind of drains any woohooiness out of it all.
