Mario Kart Tour coming next fiscal year to smart devices

From the investors meeting...

We plan to release a smart-device application from the Mario Kart franchise, Mario Kart Tour, during the next financial year (from April 2018 to March 2019). We will announce further details at a later date.

To everyone about to say you'll just stick with actual Mario Kart: this isn't for us. This is for other people, to get them to join us.

Wow, really? Of all the franchises to bring to mobile, Mario Kart was not one I would have guessed.

But I love Mario Kart, and look forward to what they make. Hopefully the fun remains intact better than their Animal Crossing mobile attempt.

Actually saw a decent amount of people mentioning they should do a mobile Mario Kart the last couple of weeks. :O

Does it tie in with an upcoming Mario Kart 9 for Switch?

If this is even close to something resembling a real Mario Kart experience, then this will make them serious money. I think it could be designed in a way that doesn't cannibalize console Kart sales.

So, is this the "last" game in that deal Nintendo has with DeNA?

Probably to give people a taste of what MK is all about, hoping they go out and buy a Switch for the real thing. Seems to have helped with sales of Mario and Pokemon.
