It looks like Nintendo might be getting serious about the mobile market.
According to multiple sources including USA Today, Nintendo is going to import their long running and incredibly successful game Mario Kart to mobile devices. The game, titled Mario Kart Tour, is expected to hit the app store in March of 2019.
It’s unclear whether the game will include any AR components like Pokemon Go but the company has had success in the mobile arena so far with Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing. Nintendo took to Twitter to announce the game.
