Nintendo delays its very first Mario Kart game for mobile

Artist's estimate of how small the rumored Nintendo Switch revision might look based on a Nikkei report

However, just last week Nintendo's president Shuntaro Furukawa went on record saying that a price cut and successor to Switch are not now being considered. Nintendo's Q3 2018 profit amounted to 104.2 billion yen (roughly $1.2 billion CAD), up from 83.7 billion yen (about $1 billion CAD) past year.

And while the Switch dominated its competition over the Christmas period, its sales aren't quite covering off the gap being left by the wilting sales of the aging 2/3DS. It's unclear what that means for the time being, and Nintendo has not elaborated on the matter.

The report arrives on the heels of an impressive Q3 2018 that saw 9.41 million Switch consoles moved between October and December 2018. If it could breath new life into the Switch with a portable, it could go even further and provide an answer to what will succeed the 3DS handheld. That list includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (15.02m), Super Mario Odyssey (13.76m), Super Smash Bros. Ultimate setting records all over the place, and hardware sales during the holiday season were through the roof with 9.42 million units being shifted. The company also says that Super Mario Party sold 5.3 million copies. Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, released November 16, sold 10 million.

Although Nintendo has not disclosed what features will be making it into the mobile app, multiplayer games are a must-have feature.

Nintendo pushed back the release of Mario Kart Tour to summer in Japan from March, an unexpected delay. The title generated 3 billion yen in revenue in its first month, but has since struggled to monetize users, executives said. I rarely play games online with my Switch and having access to old NES games isn't all that alluring to me.
