Mario Kart Tour has been delayed

Nintendo Delays Mario Kart Tour to Later in 2019

Nintendo delays the launch of Mario Kart Tour for mobiles

Here's a quick translation of the tweet: "Mario Kart Tour, our upcoming mobile app, has been delayed".

Sure, there's probably more all-encompassing, detailed video games than the classic Nintendo game, but is there anything that you could genuinely sit down for an hour, in a group on your own, and have as much fun playing? Explaining the delay, Nintendo said it wanted to "improve [the] quality of the application and expand the content offerings after launch", and hence needed more development time. It was scheduled to release within the current quarter but has now been set back to summer 2019.

Mario Kart Tour, which Nintendo announced nearly exactly a year ago, has been pushed back. However, while Nintendo didn't communicate much on the game since its announcement, this strategy doesn't come as a surprise when analyzing how they handled communication on previous mobile games like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Aside from the name, we know nothing about one of the year's biggest mobile games. If you're having trouble remembering Mario Kart Tour, it may be because Nintendo has only shown a logo when the title was first unveiled.

The company has been loath to discuss its plans for Mario Kart Tour and there's been no insight into what the game will look like, how it operates, and more. In early 2017, Nintendo launched Super Mario Run on Android. Any and all support helps keep DualShockers as a standalone, independent platform for less-mainstream opinions and news coverage.
