"The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near," Nintendo wrote in a recent tweet. Despite the tweet, there has been little details about Mario Kart Tour, but more details are expected across the course of the year.

As previously stated, Nintendo have been reluctant to expand onto mobile devices. But, this seems to have changed with the release of mobile games such as: Miitopia, Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

A report in December, saw that Nintendo were seeking more partners to help develop mobile games, to catch up with competitors. The latest edition of the Mario Kart franchise came in Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U, and the Deluxe Edition which arrived on the Switch in 2017.
