After a long delay, Nintendo's Mario Kart Tour finally releases for iOS and Android on 25th September.
During the beta we got a first look at the new mobile title, which showed its simplified game play and gacha-style mechanics. A lot can change between beta and full release however, so we'll have to wait until next month to find out more about the final version's monetisation.
The game boasts courses "inspired by real-world locations as well as Mario Kart series favourites", and you'll need to be logged into a Nintendo Account to play.
