Nintendo postpones launch of mobile version of Mario Kart Tour

Exactly one year ago, Nintendo announced that it would launch the classic Mario Kart for mobile devices at the end of March. Although we are still two months away from this date, the Japanese gaming giant will give even more chair seating for the game, as this release has been postponed to midyear.

Here's the tweet one year ago:

The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near. A new mobile app is now under development: Mario Kart Tour! #MarioKartTour. Release in the fiscal year ending March 2019.

Nintendo said the decision was made to improve the quality of the game and expand content offerings after the release, according to a statement issued by the company for the company's last quarter fiscal results released by the company. The verge.

As we commented, Mario Kart Tour should not work in exactly the same way as Super Mario Run (which has only one purchase to release all functions). In this sense, Nintendo is likely to add even more in-house purchases to the next game to "boost your monetization."

This is Nintendo's second long-awaited hit that is delayed in less than a month; Last week, the company announced that development of the Metroid Prime 4 game is being completely restarted. It is worth remembering, therefore, the most famous quote from the creator of Mario and the character Zelda: A good late game, but an always bad rushed game.

Only in 2018, Nintendo made $ 348 million in mobile games.
