Nintendo has just unveiled its next plan to take over the smartphone market, and it's bringing karts, shells and coins to the party. Mario Kart Tour is the name of the new mobile title, with Ninty confirming it'll be hitting a handset near you sometime in FY 2018/2019 (so that means it'll arrive any time between April 2018 and March of next year).

We don't know any more details at this stage, so we don't know if it'll be a fully-fledged Mario Kart game in the traditional sense or whether it'll be free-to-play (like Pokémon GO or Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp) or premium (a la Super Mario Run). But a Mario Kart game on mobile? It's an instantly recognisable brand, question is, what will Nintendo try to do with outside of consoles and handhelds?
