The problem with “microtransactions” is that they are not micro. You’ll save a ton of money if they unlocked everything and sold the game for $100. Gaming will never be the same with all these greedy developers.

Developers want to make money? Crazy...

Problem is, there’s a way to make money and there’s a way to screw customers. There’s gotta be a middle ground and micro transactions are not the answer unless carefully implemented.

Ummm read the name.. Mario Kart ''Tour'' this means it is a display case of the real game aka a "tour.." It won't be anywhere near the real games. Mobile games are a joke. Mobile devices exceed 2000s computers and consoles easily and could run just about any PC game from that era but they'd rather give us a crap game every time. 'Sim City Build it' anyone? It's pure laziness and stupidity from these large game companies and developers to not offer a full authentic experience and also in this day and age it's simply criminal! And notice how app stores now cater more and more to kids not adults

If you made the mobile games like consoles, then no one would buy consoles.

A few years ago, they predicted the death of consoles due to mobile gaming. Thanks to mobile using the IAP model, consoles are doing just fine.

Be awesome if it can look as good as the Switch version. Please don;t give us a Nintendo or Super Nintendo version with updated graphics. It would be great if Nintendo brought its top 10 games from each system to mobile in their original game-play, but with beefed up graphics and added levels.

Not expecting a switch version but definitely make it better then older versions. I have the Beach Buggy games which are decent.

I'm excited for this! I hope they have multiplayer somehow, and that it's not littered with "micro" transactions.

If they could do a GameCube version or above... I believe we could maintain that level of visuals
