It would appear that those fortunate enough to have been selected to take part in the closed beta test for Mario Kart Tour are starting to be notified via email. If you applied for the chance to take part, make sure to keep an eye on your inbox.

Last month, Nintendo opened beta test applications for Android users in Japan and North America. The test was said to be taking place "in order to improve the quality of the game" before its expected summer 2019 release.

It seems that Japanese applicants were the first to be notified, with emails reportedly asking those who have been successful to refrain from posting any images or videos of the game online. Naturally, we'd expect North American applicants to also be informed pretty soon - especially considering the beta test itself is taking place this Wednesday.

We'd also expect to see plenty more info on this one before it launches, maybe at E3 or in a later Nintendo Direct - after all, we really don't know all that much about it just yet. Summer 2019 doesn't feel too far away, though, so hopefully we'll be zooming around mobile circuits before we know it.
