Mario Kart Tour Gets Two Trailers Showing Off Gameplay
Mario Kart Tour finally got a release date last night and now Nintendo has revealed two new gameplay trailers.
Last night, the Mario Kart Tour Twitter account was activated as Nintendo finally announced the game’s release date. Today, the team has started to roll out content for the pre-release cycle with two videos showing off a few gameplay snippets. Check out the first one below.
Uploading the trailer as a vertical video is certainly a choice. I know Nintendo is trying to show what the game will look like in motion, but it’s not the best way to get a good look at the gameplay. In the first trailer, we see a bunch of stages and drivers that Mario fans will recognize. It looks like pretty typical Mario Kart just with an odd screen resolution that makes everything feel a bit more chaotic than usual. Certain turns seem to come out of nowhere with the squished screen. It’s not a complete deal-breaker, but it’s definitely noticeable.
The second trailer shows the game being played by people all over the world. This gives us a decent look at how you’ll actually control the kart. Obviously, it’s going to be a much simpler version of console Mario Kart, but I like how they’ve found ways to use the touch screen. We see a player wiping off the screen after they slimed by a Blooper. It seems like they could easily add more interactable items that would work well on a phone.
We don’t have to wait much longer to ger our fingers on the game. Mario Kart Tour comes to Android and iPhone on September 25.
