Nintendo has applied three trademarks for Mario Kart Tour in Japan. Mario Kart Tour is the first Mario Kart app coming to smartphones this financial year.
The trademarks filed are ’MARIOKART TOUR’, ‘マリカーツアー’ and ‘MK TOUR’. What makes things interesting is that the trademark was filed for “provision of amusement parks” and “renting of vehicles”, besides “electronic game program” and “providing electronic publications online”.
This could be a hint at a tie in with the future Super Nintendo World theme park at Universal Studios.
