Mario Kart Tour is the first Mario Kart title to ever be released on a non dedicated Nintendo device, Following popular Nintendo franchises such as Mario, Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, Mario Kart Tour will finally be releasing on iOS and Android devices on September 25th.
The Mario Kart Tour Beta kicked off earlier this summer and was received with mixed feelings due to the simplicity of the games controls. The mechanics are very simple and adjusted to be played on the go. Players can swipe right and left to turn corners instead of maneuvering with drifts and skills like in mainline Mario Kart games.
Furthermore, players report that the game heavily relies on in-game purchases suggestion a “free to play” model, although the closed beta didn’t let players purchase anything, it will be interesting to see what the final version of the game will offer in terms of micro-transactions. Players have also reported that there would be characters to purchase that can offer special boosts, making fans of the game fear the possibility of pay to win purchases.
However, Mario Kart Tour includes plenty of unique tracks with fun turns and twist that we all came to love and expect from the franchise. Familiar characters, boosts and items are also all part of the mobile version.
Check out the release trailer for Mario Kart Tour. The game will be available on iOS and Android on September 25th and will be free to play. You can already pre-register for the gamer via Nintendos official Mario Kart Tour website.
