    Over a year after its announcement, and 2 months after the end of the closed beta, Mario Kart Tour will finally be available for iOS and Android next month. This is Nintendo's third mobile Mario game, and eighth mobile game overall, excluding games licensed by The Pokémon Company. The release comes shortly after Dr. Mario World, which came out on July 10th.

    Animal Crossing Pocket Camp was only just barely tolerable on my old Android phone up until the update that increased the RAM requirement beyond what my phone could support. For Dr. Mario World, the lag was just bad enough that I uninstalled it in frustration after it screwed me over particularly badly. So, I don't have much hope that I'll have any fun with this game.

    Insert original joke about microtransactions here

    Seriously though, from what I've seen, it looks kinda fun. I may try it out.

    Most likely.

    I don't know if it's me, but the final version looks a lot more improved compared to the beta.

    This looks like crap compared to Mario Kart DS. At least the tracks were more detailed than whatever that is.

    Not to start a huge arguement but dang. Mario kart fan is dissapointed.

    Can't expect much from a mobile game, they gotta make it run on several generations of older smartphones.

    i tested all of the nintendo apps on switch android and they work. only problem is for me, they didnt show up on google play so i had to download them from somewhere else, and sometimes they wouldnt boot so i had to root with magisk and hide root

    Looks the same as the beta, the beta was so bad I only played it for a few minutes before uninstalling it.

    Well yeah, of course. And mobile controls are infinitely hampered unless they find an ingenious way to use the motion controls. But still, even the older phones are better than a DS by a long shot. I really don't see how microtransactions can work with traditional mario kart mechanics, but if it's not pay2play well heck I'll try it.
