Mario Kart Launches On Mobile For The First Time Ever Today

Mario Kart Launches On Mobile For The First Time Ever Today

Whether you fancied yourself a Princess Peach, Donkey Kong or the Mario himself, pretty much everyone wiled away their hours playing Mario Kart at one point or another back in the day.

Well here's a big dose of 90s nostalgia as the classic go kart racing game is hitting mobiles for the first time in its history.

Yes, Nintendo launched the full Mario Kart Tour for your smartphone today (25th September) and we are wasting no time in downloading it.

And the best part, it's free! Yes, you can go ahead and download the full game from the App Store and Google Play right now and it won't cost you a dime. Though it appears to be just an introductory offer, so be quick.

The first in the series, Super Mario Kart, was released in 1992 and the gaming smash hit has seen nine more games since. However, Mario Kart Tour is the first to get its turn on the small screen.

Kind of mad its taken this long, considering we can do everything on our phones these days, isn't it?

The cities will feature in tours that will rotate every two weeks, meaning players will no doubt be hooked for months on end.

The game will feature the brand new 'Frenzy mode' which gives players an unlimited supply of a certain item making you invincible - but you'll be against the clock before it runs out.

What's more, there are bonus challenges and course with names such as 'Vs Mega Browse' and 'Goomba Takedown' which require a different strategy to simply winning.

As with many online games these days, players can choose to be submitted to a worldwide leaderboard, playing against karters from all over the world in hopes to up their scores. We can see this getting competitive.

You'll also be treated to some new characters such as Pauline, the singing sensation set against the backdrop of New York City, who first debuted in Super Mario Odyssey.

Disclosure: we've just downloaded it and had a play (in the name of quality journalism and nothing else) and let me tell you IT IS ADDICTIVE. Be prepared to lose your lunch break... and some.
