No boost mushrooms.
Nintendo’s upcoming Mario Kart mobile game Mario Kart Tour has been delayed until later this year.
Financial highlights from Nintendo reveal the game, which was originally slated to release before March 2019, has been pushed back to “summer 2019,” which ranges between June and September in the Northern Hemisphere.
According to Nintendo, the delay is “in order to improve quality of the application and expand the content offerings after launch.”
“As we endeavor to develop future planned applications, we will also focus on continued service operations for applications that have already been released so that consumers can enjoy playing them for a long time,” Nintendo’s statement adds.
Mario Kart Tour will eventually add to Nintendo’s current line up of mobile games which include Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Super Mario Run. In the past, rumors suggested that a Zelda mobile game could also be in the works.
