Mario Kart Tour Delayed to Summer 2019

If you’re looking forward to the latest Mario Kart game, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. Nintendo has pushed back Mario Kart Tour from March to Summer.

This information comes from Nintendo’s most recent financial highlights report. In this report, they detailed their last nine months’ earnings, and outlined their schedule for the future. You can go check out the report right here, but to summarize it, Nintendo is doing very well, and they plan to keep that trend up in 2019.

While the “Consolidated Financial Forecast” details plans for the 3DS and current software, the main standout is Mario Kart Tour. To quote the document directly: “Mario Kart Tour was scheduled to be released this fiscal year, but in order to improve quality of the application and expand the content offerings after launch, the release date has been moved to summer 2019.”

When it finally releases, we don’t doubt that Mario Kart Tour will rake in boatloads of profit. The Mario Kart series has historically been one of Nintendo’s best-selling. Currently, nearly half of all Nintendo Switch owners own a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Bring that level of success to the incredibly profitable mobile platform, and it’s hard to see Mario Kart on mobile going wrong.
