Those hoping to take Mario Kart on the go with their mobile devices will have to wait a bit longer. Nintendo has confirmed the title won’t release in March but this summer instead.

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. It’s likely it’ll following the free-to-play model as Nintendo’s other mobile titles such as Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing have successfully followed this model.
