Nintendo teased the upcoming development of "Mario Kart Tour" which it said will be released sometime before March 2019. The stability of games online hold up pretty well in my opinion when playing games like Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, and Rocket League, but is there really enough there to warrant charging the customer? Find out when Nintendo is giving the green light to this mobile game and more!

Additionally, Nintendo also announced that it is for a movie called Mario. The company made a surprise announcement that it intends to bring Mario Kart Tour next year. As you might already know, the first live action Mario film was atrocious and this scared Nintendo from making another movie ever again.

While we hope that Nintendo will offer a premium gaming experience with a one-off payment like Super Mario Run, it seems like it'll go down the free-to-play-with-IAPs route. The company didn't confirm whether they will allow this subscription model only on Nintendo Switch console like Xbox Game Pass or if they plan to roll it to other platforms as well.

Nintendo has had a rough few years. However, if Super Mario Run is any indication, Nintendo has figured out how to make a well-loved video game into a fun app that old and new fans of Mario will love.

Goyal thinks Nintendo has nailed the timing of its announcements so far and said the company sounded like the timing of new projects is a primary focus going forward.

Switch games can be played on a television or in handheld mode.

There aren't too many notes about the game past that, although we did get a good look at the logo above. There have been reports about a Legend of Zelda mobile game as well. From its first release on the Super NES to the latest incarnation, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, on the Switch, gamers have been throwing turtle shells and cursing Rainbow Road for decades.

Also unclear is how Mario Kart Tour would be sold.

This new annual target would alone exceed lifetime sales of 13.56 million consoles for the Wii U, which was on the market for about five years. Earlier this year, Nintendo confirmed the service would shut down in May.
