Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour dropped today. Right now it's a mobile game, but I read some things that indicate it may be on the Switch at some point.

Anyone else playing? It's fun, but not great. Steering is a pain. And you can't do 200cc racing unless you pay. It also limits the XP you can earn in a day. You're basically just running the same half dozen or so tracks with the same driver or two over and over anyway, but it's kind of a bummer that you can't grind your way up.

if the animal crossing series is any indication ..nintendo is using mobile gaming to test things like new modes/ideas before they update the main game which they did with their handheld versions since the first ds

If the new stuff is popular it makes it way in and if it doesn't well its a free mobile game and not much is lost...
