Mario Kart Tour (マリオ カート ツアー) is an upcoming title in the Mario Kart series for mobile devices. While this isn't the first mobile Mario Kart game (there have been four already), it will be the first to be features on non-Nintendo consoles or cabinets.
At the moment, not much is known about the game at all, as it was announced on January 31, 2018. However, more information will be revealed before its March 2019 release date in the United States, Japan, Australia, and Europe (release dates for other countries have not yet been announced).
Nintendo spread the message of Mario Kart Tour mainly via Twitter on January 31, 2018 (one day before this article was created). Other than this release date and a logo, nothing else about the mobile game was released, so we'll just have to wait and see.
Here are some of the links to the Twitter announcements:
