We're pretty much at the midpoint of the year now, which makes it around six months since we pondered what the future might hold for Nintendo's advances into mobile. And so far in 2018 the resounding answer has been - not much at all, really.

Now, we've already had our say about what Nintendo has to do if it wants to remain relevant in the mobile sphere, and you can check that out by clicking here. But here's the kicker, we've got a long wait ahead of us for Mario Kart Tour.
