The video game company announced Wednesday that it is bringing the massively popular Mario Kart game to smartphones by March 2019.
The game features some of the most iconic characters from the Super Mario Bros. universe and beyond, racing against each other in a variety of courses, all while using items like shells and bananas to toss at opponents and gain the upper hand.
Now make way for Mario Kart Tour, which will enable users to race on the go.
