Mario Kart is one of Nintendo’s most successful franchises to date. Mario Kart Tour was initially announced early 2018 and was originally scheduled for release this spring. Since then, the game has had a closed beta and a delayed “summer 2019” release was revealed.
Finally, just last night, Nintendo has officially announced via Twitter that Mario Kart Tour is arriving to iOS and Android on September 25.

Nintendo has also created a dedicated Twitter handle for all things Mario Kart Tour at @mariokarttourEN. Following the announcement, Android users can pre-register for the game while iOS App Store users can pre-order the app as well.
Let’s go! 🏁

The game’s mechanics have been covered by some outlets judging by the private Beta that Nintendo launched. The game’s core racing gameplay and online racing aspects are there, but Nintendo might go a little overboard with microtransactions.
