'Mario Kart Tour' for iPhone and Android delayed to summer

'Mario Kart Tour' for iPhone and Android delayed to summer

When it comes to software, it's fantastic news with several games reaching the 10 million figure.

That would've meant needing a little over 5.5 million in its fourth quarter, however, Nintendo has updated the forecast and brought it down to 17 million for the fiscal year ending in March 2019.


The Switch's current lifetime total is 32.27 million, and since it only came out two years ago that means it's now beating the sales trajectories of not just the Xbox 360 but every PlayStation console ever.

It's a shame that we'll have to wait a bit longer until the Mushroom Kingdom's greatest racers hit the track on mobile, but it's probably best Nintendo takes its time with it considering the ridiculously high bar of quality the series is known for.


In their latest quarterly results they've downgraded their target to just 17 million, which they'll easily meet because they're now on 14.49 million. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold 12.08 million units. It was the first time that Mario had been playable on another game platform.

Nintendo once stood adamantly against mobile games, but these days the company is no stranger to releasing mobile spin-offs of its most popular and profitable franchises. It was scheduled to release within the current quarter but has now been set back to summer 2019. The game was due to launch by March 31st this year, but will now be released sometime in summer.


For starters, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has become the best-selling Switch game, at 15.02 million units sold.
