In yet another entry of a surprising series announcements that Nintendo has made tonight, the company just revealed that a mobile adaptation of Mario Kart will be hitting sometime early next year. Details are scant, with Nintendo revealing nothing except the game’s title: Mario Kart Tour.

It’s interesting that the announcement lists Mario Kart Tour as a mobile application instead of an outright game. We’ll have to wait to find out more about this pocket sized-speedster later.

A Mario Kart mobile game could be cool! If it’s not bogged down in microtransactions. Here’s hoping!
