Why is it that Nintendo's mobile game always get "pushed back"? y;


Was anyone looking forward to this? ...I know this game was brought up recently during out Mario Kart nights. I'm really interested to what they do with this, because it could be a fun mini Mario Kart to play when all you have with you is your phone. I still check-in on Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp every now and then. It's a fun mini AC to have while waiting for AC Switch.

I'm on the fence about Mario Kart Tour. I'm guessing since the pay $10 to have full access to Super Mario Run didn't do as well as Nintendo was expecting, that Mario Kart Tour is going free to start with in app purchases. I don't know if that's already been confirmed or not. I'll have to see what Mario Kart Tour has in store.

I didn't notice it was just called Mario Kart Tour.

So Dragalia Lost is making A LOT MORE MONEY for Nintendo than any of their mobile games and it also has tons of microtransactions.  Their basic assertion is that Nintendo, seeing the financial numbers, and the investors liking the returns, could push MKT into a "gotcha" game....   




I could totally see it falling the same way they do.  But the panel also seemed to act like Kart games on mobile lose their steam real fast....

Not that I planned on playing a mobile Mario Kart but if it were to become a gacha type of game then that just increases the chances that I would resist any temptation to give it a shot if I my mind were to stray from my resolution to not play a mobile Mario Kart.

Here's the like to the beta (Android users & JPN/USA only) for anyone interested...


Link: https://mariokarttour.com/en-US <--- Looks like you have to enter using the site on your Android device.


I'm VERY curious to see what form this game is going to take. I'd really like to enter, but I have an older Android tablet (2012 Nexus 7 ruining Kit Kat) and it's a bit sluggish nowadays running some games, like AC: Pocket Camp for example. My device probably wouldn't be supported anyway, so... I wonder if they'll do an iOS beta (I have an iPhone SE running iOS 12)?


It says the beta is from 5/22 - 6/4...Could we expect the game to drop sometime in mid-late June or early July? BTW, I wonder if they will show this off at E3 like they did with Pokémon GO?

I just got my beta test email from Nintendo--it's only for people whose Club Nintendo email and Google Play account use the same account on Gmail. Application period runs for the next two weeks, then players are chosen, then after another two weeks we can download the game. I didn't see any information on how many people are invited to apply for the random drawing, nor how many will be accepted.


The application says beta testers are not allowed to post pictures or video of the game, but... yeah, let's see how that lasts. Trust doesn't tend to be rewarded much in this age.

I'm pretty sure people will immediately start posting pics and vids. :v  I remember there were a LOT of leaked pics/vids of Pokémon GO during it's beta test, which was kind of funny with the 'CONFIDENTIAL' watermark all over the entire game. Yeah, Nintendo loves to strike down content, so I wonder how far they will go with this? I wouldn't be surprised if they implemented some kind of way to trackback to your Nintendo Account (in case of leaks) and possibly banned you from the game during launch.
