The news came from the JP Nintendo Twitter account. The translation of the tweet: “Mario Kart Tour, our upcoming mobile app, has been delayed. We took this decision in order to furthermore improve the application’s quality, and ensure we can deliver new content for it regularly after launch. The app will now launch in Summer 2019.”

Announced last year on January 2018, Mario Kart Tour was scheduled to launch this March 2019 and offer a free-to-play version of the game for players. Nintendo's expansion to the smartphone market has been well-received since the release of their first game, Super Mario Run.  While gamers will have to wait a bit longer you can still try Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Switch.
