Nintendo is close to delivering on last year’s promise to put Mario Kart on mobile devices. The game is already being played on PCs, but it’s time for Nintendo to follow its audience to the phone where they increasingly live and breathe. Just how they adapt this well known game to the mobile medium will be interesting…what elements will they keep and what will they drop as they live within the phone’s restrictions. The fun will be playing the new versions of Rainbow Road or Koopa Troopa Beach on your phone.
The beta version is said to be close to release, but in a break from the past, it will be available on Android devices first, which puts iOS users at the back of the line. While nothing quite beats the classic N64 version of Mario Kart, having the ability to compete with this timeless title on your phone will be a fresh experience. Check back in for more updates on Mario Kart as the beta release unfolds.
