"We are hoping it will be a new point of contact between consumers and Nintendo that a wide range of people, regardless of age, gender, or experience with games can enjoy", says Nintendo.

The upcoming title will be first time the Mario Kart series has been available on mobile phones. Nintendo has been sticking to this formula for all of its mobile releases, which has resulted in billions of installs of Nintendo games across Android and iOS, but as we all know, installs don't necessarily translate to any money made. "The title has continued to show explosive growth after its release, with the fastest start for any title on any Nintendo home console ever".

Looking to the quality of Nintendo's past mobile efforts, this will likely be good news for players in the end. Nintendo entered the mobile business to create more opportunities for consumers to engage with Nintendo IP and reach audiences beyond its dedicated video game platform business. Even Miitomo took over a year to dry up. Instead, Nintendo opts for dumbed-down spin-offs that are better suited for touchscreen controls and steal none of the Switch's thunder.

The summer timing will put it smack in the middle of the gaming giant's new fiscal year, too, meaning that it could prove to be a big enrichment for a period that's normally pretty dry in the gaming world.

"The development of animated film based on Super Mario Bros. with Illumination is moving along for an anticipated theatrical release around 2022", said Furukawa (via IGN).
