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.
