Nintendo delays the launch of Mario Kart Tour for mobiles

Exactly a year ago, Nintendo announced that a Mario Kart game for iPhone and Android would be launched by the end of March 2019. If you're not familiar with Dr. Mario, there is a Tetris-style falling-block layout where you maneuver different color capsules to kill off viruses. Instead, the company said that it's been forced to delay the game and will now be launching it in the summer. Mario is one of the most beloved names in gaming, so it seems that the company is looking to get the game as close to flawless as possible to avoid disappointing fans and tarnishing the money-making franchise.

Nintendo has released its Earnings Report for the nine-month fiscal period that ended on December 31, 2018. For you Mario fans, you'll already know that this won't be the first time we've seen Mario in a lab coat. Dr. Mario World is targeting an early summer 2019 global release, including Japan and the United States. Super Mario Run was a little rocky due to its price to play to full game while Nintendos other two RPG titles might be too complicated for a casual player.

The game has had several remakes and re-releases since, and Dr. Mario is a fighter in Super Smash Bros., but it's never been one of Nintendo's most visible franchises.

Something to look forward to: A classic Mario game is being made into a mobile app so that all of the fun can be had on modern devices. Most recently was Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure on Nintendo 3DS in 2015.
