Nintendo’s long-awaited Super Mario racing game for mobile is coming very soon. This September 25, Nintendo will release Mario Kart Tour for Android and iOS devices.
Mario Kart Tour will be free to download and play. However, like the Mario mobile games that came before it, in-app payments are inevitable. iPhone and iPad users can pre-order the game now from the App Store.
Based on the preview from Nintendo, the game will be in vertical orientation. Some players might find this weird since most mobile racing games are in landscape mode. But this makes sense because all actions within the game are controlled by single-finger gestures. In addition, players can bring out their competitive side when they view the online leader boards.
Fans can play through their favorite courses from previous Mario Kart games like the Rainbow Road. New courses featuring real-life cities are also available in the new game. You can race in the streets of Paris as Luigi or Princess Peach. According to the game’s App Store description, destinations will change every two weeks. Will there be a Manila-inspired course? We hope so.
