Nintendo has shared a second trailer for Mario Kart Tour's upcoming Singapore Tour, this time giving us a better look at its brand new track, Singapore Speedway.
First teased at the end of last week, Singapore Speedway joins the likes of London Loop and Los Angeles Laps as the latest real world-inspired circuit in the game. The Singapore Tour kicks off this week (11th January at 10pm PT / 12th January 7am CET) and also introduces Vacation Luigi. Here's the new trailer:
Mario Kart's been hitting the headlines and trending on social media over the weekend thanks to comments made last week by Kantan Games' Dr. Serkan Toto. He claims that 'Mario Kart 9', a console game successor to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, is "in active development" and comes with "a new twist".
The comments made the term 'Nintendo Kart' trend online as fans shared their hopes for the series' future, with many seemingly wanting the next instalment to include more crossover with other Nintendo franchises.
Will you be checking out Mario Kart Tour's new tour this week? Or are you patiently waiting for more Mario Kart action on home console? Share your thoughts with us below.
Everything from Mario Kart Tour should be included for next Mario Kart game on Switch.
Handphone games will be never last long.
Mario Kart Tour will be delisted someday in the future and the only thing left just regret.
Looks fine, a bit like a reskin of Neo Bowser City though.
@Anti-Matter oh like my friends
Bring back bratwurst Luigi or we riot
I wish Nintendo kept putting content into console Mario Kart the way they pay attention to their apps
@Anti-Matter I partly agree with you, in that I think they should release it for console, but not as part of an official Mario Kart. I'd buy it as a port, just modified for normal controls. But as a mobile cross over, I think it would inherently be seen as a lesser game.
Whether that's fair or not, that would be the perception. And since it's free to play on phone, I'm not sure how to monetize it on Switch so neither group of players feels cheated or abused. Actually, now that I think about it, that could be such a mine field, that might be why it never happens.
@ AW1Long I'd rather their console games be released in finished form rather than drip fed content after release.
@Anti-Matter yeah I just noticed that Forza street is getting shut down in spring this year
I don’t see it ever being delisted, console games only last so long before we move on to the next generation and only hope we’ll see them again via virtual console (which is doubtful). Mobile app stores are always around and I can see them updating this app for years to come.
Wii U games for example may be last gen but they will always be playable on original hardware and on emulators.
Games like Miitomo and Pokémon Duel are permanently unplayable, and unfortunately they set the precedent for Nintendo shutting down unprofitable games
