    This better have controller support! Let's be frank it's gonna be Mario Kart vs. Asphalt 8 and right now Asphalt 8 is the king. If Mario Kart wants to dethrone Asphalt it needs controller support and online gaming.

    One more thing. Maybe it's time for Nintendo to hang up the 3DS boots, make a mobile controller and just go Switch + Mobile for the rest of this cycle.

    Quick thought, Nintendo should release a JoyCon grip for smart phones. JoyCons would make playing Mario Kart a LOT easier.

    lol micro-transactions... a star will be 50cents, a bolt will be $1, a ghost in first for $2, 10 coins $1.. and so it goes.
    $5 for more blocks on your track...

    I predict it will be a 3D auto accelerate kinda racer. You turn the cart by tilting your phone. Seems like a smart and viable way to bring this series to mobile. Regardless of what it ends up being, I wont personally have much interest, mobile phone games have always had little appeal to me, especially these days when we have the likes of the 3DS and the Switch to play portably instead.

    Wonder which direction they'll go.
    "OH, YOU RAN OUT OF ENERGY TO FINISH THE RACE! YOU CAN WAIT 48H OR TOP UP YOUR FUEL FOR $89.99!" or "LOL LOK AT YOUR SHITTY KRAT, GIVE US MONEY AND WE'LL GIVE YOU THIS OVERPOWERED KRAT TO REK THE ONLINES"

    Plot twist (pure speculation): It's actually an app to manage save data for the next Mario Kart arcade game, like how a Gamecube memory card did for MKGP (2).

    I don't mind as long as we're talking about new tracks, karts and such. If we're talking about something like waiting for hours to refuel or pay to play immediately then yeah... they can keep it.

    I love (but actually fucking despise) how as soon as a mobile game is announced, it's already known from the start that it will be a F2P cashgrab. I for one would actually consider it, if it was a $10 or so game that you buy once without any microtransactions. Sadly, that time has passed.

    Piracy is overwhelmingly rampant on mobile. I understand why they would go f2p, but I still won't play it if that would be the case.

    It will be some crappy overpriced mobile type game like Mario Run or the other crap they push out on mobile.
    I don't expect much, but we will wait a see???

    mario kart tout now with extra beans

    I dont have a mobile phone (unless you classify a phone as a touchscreen with only a few buttons, in which case I have a switch)
    Nintendo games to me are usually less prone to memes or drama or hate or being bad when they get put on a Nintendo console.

    (granted I've never played any of their mobile titles)

    I'm not sure how I feel about this...

    Nyko actually has a Joy-Con Grip where you can clip your phone to the top of the grip.
    That being said, I do hope Nintendo adds Joy-Con support to MKT. Seeing that the Joy-Con use Bluetooth, and most modern phones support Bluetooth, I think it would be a great decision by the Big N.

    I hope it's like Fire Emblem Heroes. I haven't spent a dime on that game and I can clear anything with ease if I put my mind to it and save orbs. These Nintendo games are nice for that.
