Soon, you’ll be able to engage in high-speed turtle shell slinging from anywhere in the world on a Mario Kart mobile game.  

Nintendo announced that a smartphone-friendly installment of their immensely popular racing series will be released next year.  

Other details about Mario Kart Tour are forthcoming. 

The series’ latest release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, arrived on the Nintendo Switch in April of 2017. It proved to be a major hit among fans with its massive number of new and retro levels, online play and customizable characters.

A mobile port of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe would be great fun, but would almost certainly lose some features and content in the transition. However, a Super Mario 64-style game could reach great heights in the nostalgia department.

Or maybe it will be a new game entirely. We’ll find out when it drops in March of 2019.
