Mega Bowser" and "Goomba Takedown." There will also be online play and leaderboards to see who the best racers in the world are.Nintendo announced Mario Kart Tour back in 2018 and a closed beta test on Android gave fans their first real look at this new racing title.Mario Kart Tour will be the next mobile game released by Nintendo following Dr. Mario World, in which we said it was a "fun, but flawed" take on the classic NES game.Have a tip for us?
