    The next Nintendo mobile game, Mario Kart Tour, was scheduled to be racing to smartphones before the end of the fiscal year, but according to a new earnings report, that’s no longer the case. Nintendo has confirmed that Mario Kart Tour has been delayed by a few months to “Summer 2019”, as the game requires more development time to meet standards. This will allow for a more “quality application”, and for there to be more post launch content. While the game was announced nearly a year ago, no major details have been given in regards to gameplay. Meanwhile, Nintendo’s other mobile games, Dragalia Lost and Fire Emblem Heroes have been exceeding company expectations.

    This is the first time I fully support a delay. Please push it back into the next decade or even further. :D

    Does anybody read locations?
    Can’t wait to wait even longer for some mobile games that would actually qualify as “games”. (other is Elder Scrolls Blades, which was ALSO delayed.)

    This better be a quality PAID game you pay for once and play the same way as on console, with game pad support.
    Better not be a “free” same with iap tracks & characters

    here idk
    I really want to hope that this game won't have microtransactions. But alas, that would be unreasonable to expect.

    hopefully they pull a Mario Run, basic free trial with in-app purchase to unlock full game no micros.
    i think it might be a fun game but then again i already have Mario Kart mobile....on the switch.

    got to love claims "quality game" sorry nintendo but youve been recycling mario kart since 1985, im pretty sure you'd be a dab hand any recycling it by now and be able to shit it out like liquid.

    more like nintendo have lost what it means to make games and todays hardware is too much for them to work with.

    first metroid being handed over to a third party, here is another nintendo first party being delayed.

    Y'know if we actually got footage or literally anything to show, then I would actually care more about this
