  • Nintendo Delays Mario Kart Tour to Later in 2019

During the company's financial results briefing for the end of previous year, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa revealed that the film is eyeing a 2022 release date.

These are still just reports at this stage, but the story is certainly firming up from more and more business-minded sources who are regularly privy to insider info before the company spills the beans.
