Mario Kart Tour, the smartphone debut of Nintendo's hit racing series, has been delayed.

If the latest report from Japanese publication Nikkei is true, Nintendo will be taking a big step in that direction in 2019. But now they've finally given up on it.

A quarterly record of 9.41 million Switch machines were sold between October and December last year, marking a 30 percent year-over-year increase. In September, the gaming giant launched Nintendo Switch Online, a subscription service that costs $20 a year and lets users play games in multiplayer mode and gives them a library of classic titles.

In their latest quarterly results they've downgraded their target to just 17 million, which they'll easily meet because they're now on 14.49 million.

The previous record-holder was New Super Mario Bros. Ultimate is now the fastest selling home console game Nintendo has ever released, with sales currently at 12.08 million.

Mario Kart is now the most successful first-party IP the company has on the Switch, so a mobile app could prove wildly popular, if executed correctly.

The Switch's game sales have been equally strong. The reason for the delay of the game, as Nintendo puts it, is to improve upon its quality.

It also states that the two companies will operate a new action puzzle game featuring Dr. Mario himself, the game is titled Dr. Mario World, and a target for an early summer 2019 global release is planned. Like all of Nintendo's mobile experiments, I'll at least scope it out.
