It’s official! Nintendo has finally announced that a mobile version of Mario Kart is under development and that the game will be released at some point over the next 13 months.
This follows the company’s recent releases of Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing and, perhaps, a response to avid Mario Kart fans who have wondered for years why Nintendo has been so reluctant to bring the game to smartphones.
The company made the official announcement on Twitter (below).
The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near. A new mobile application is now in development: Mario Kart Tour! #MarioKartTour Releasing in the fiscal year ending in March 2019. pic.twitter.com/8GIyR7ZM4z

Up to now, Nintendo has stayed quiet on the details of Mario Kart for iOS but what we do know is that the game will be called Mario Kart Tour and a release will come sometime before March 2019. According to the company, the game is “now in development” but, again, it has not been specified how far along this development is.
