The Nintendo of America Twitter account (@nintendoamerica) tweeted out that a new mobile game, Mario Kart Tour, is coming March 2019.

No other details on this have been released yet, only that it is in development. Nintendo recently announced it was shutting down its mobile social app “Miitomo” in early May, and Super Mario Run. While having had a strong start, is reportedly not meeting expectations. Additionally, the AR game Pokémon Go, while initially successful, has a userbase only a fraction of the initial craze.
Nintendo has had some success in the mobile world, however. The very popular “Fire Emblem Heroes” has won many awards as being one of the best mobile games of 2017, and the mobile animal crossing, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is also holding its own as well.
No other details have come out about this new Mario Kart game, but if it is anywhere close to its console and Nintendo DS cousins, it should be a home run.
Another great news for mobile game fans, which you can read here, is that Tekken Mobile is coming soon on smartphone devices.
