There aren’t many details about the new game, other than we should see it next year. The new game comes on the heels of the hugely successful Pokémon Go! and Super Mario Run Games. Nintendo announced that they would be putting a lot of focus towards the mobile platform.
MarioKart will be getting a lot of attention in the next few years, as the game is expected to be adapted into an all new attraction at Universal’s Super Nintendo World.
