Mario Kart Tour has been delayed until summer

Mario Kart Tour was supposed to be made available on smartphones in March of 2019, but it has now been announced that the release date has been pushed back a bit. That would place its release between January and March of this year. Since the Switch is a hybrid console that's fairly easily portable, it makes sense that the company would launch new models at some point, right?

That's in large part thanks to Super Smash Bros.

Despite only being on the market for just under two years, the Nintendo Switch has already produced some must-have titles. Ultimate, Pokémon: Let's Go (which sold 10 million units), and Super Mario Party (which sold 5.3 million).

Earlier today, we shared an updated list of the console's top ten best-selling games.

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild has also been confirmed as the best-selling Zelda ever on 13.18 million - around 1.5 million of which are for the Wii U version.

"In the smart-device business, 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", reads Nintendo's latest financial report. Many are quick to share their negative thoughts towards Nintendo's porting endeavours at the moment, but it's clear to see why so many Wii U games are coming to Switch - and it's clear that an terrible lot of players want them, too.
