Another Mobile Game: Mario Kart Tour

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!
I was scrolling through the news and something interesting caught my eye. Nintendo has been working hard getting games on our smartphones and here’s the next big one.
Mario Kart Tour is going to be the next mobile app game. It’s going to be free to start and release in Fiscal Year 2018. That’s all we know so far.
I’ve added my two cents with the mobile games before, but I guess I’ll explain it again.
I don’t know how I feel about the mobile games.
I tried a few of them, but in the end, I wanted my handheld or home console. I didn’t get into Mario Run, Miitomo, or even Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
I want a brand new mainstream Animal Crossing game. Pocket Camp is cool and they did a great job with it, but I can’t sit there and play for hours.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was a great game and it’s amazing on the Switch. I still want a brand new Mario Kart game. I want more. I don’t know how I feel about Mario Kart being on mobile. It’s certainly not going to play the same. If they’re working on that, are they even thinking about a Mario Kart 9?
Mario Kart Tour is definitely something I’ll download and give a shot, but I’m not super excited about it.

What are your thoughts on Mario Kart Tour? Are you excited or don’t care too much about it? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I think Mario Kart lends itself well to how mobile games are consumed, letting me jump in and race for a few minutes and then being able to shut it down. My concern is going to be the controls. Virtual buttons don’t ever really work well but you’ll need something to accelerate and do they go with gyro steering? So, I’m tentatively looking forward to it.

  2. It’s been so long since I’ve played a Mario Kart game. Outside of Pokémon Go, I haven’t been interested in any of the old school ports to mobile gaming. I tried trading card games on mobile and was completely unsatisfied with them. They just don’t have the same feel as playing the games in person. I feel this will be the same way with Mario Kart. I’m sure it will be fun the first few times I play them, but I fear I’ll get bored with it unless they trickle in new content.

    • That’s my worry. I think I’m going to get bored with it too quickly and will end up playing 8 Deluxe or something. I didn’t even last long with Pokemon Go.

  3. Just get a wireless controller for your mobile phone. Problem solved 😂😂😂😂😂!!!!!
