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.
The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near. A new mobile application is now in development: Mario Kart Tour! #MarioKartTour Releasing in the fiscal year ending in March 2019. pic.twitter.com/8GIyR7ZM4z

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?
