Ah, the nostalgia is real if you can still remember having a Nintendo 64 back in the day…

Mario Kart Tour, brought to you by Nintendo, will allow gamers to experience the full Mario Kart World on the small screen.

As Nintendo’s tenth game in the successful Mario Kart franchise, Mario Kart Tour will be the first to ever make it onto a mobile phone.

Gamers can play as Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser and, of course, the world’s favourite charismatic Italian plumber, Mario himself.
