Found two more sources on who developed the game and who is running it:

This post by a Nintendo employee reveals that the game is currently run by Nintendo Smart Devices Division, while Mario Kart Tour was found among the games developed by SRD.

This, along with the list of the game’s producer and directors, essentially confirms a tweet that claimed that Mario Kart Tour is developed by Nintendo and SRD (it should be noted that the directors both work for the EPD, hence the EPD claim even though there is now a specific division for mobile games):


Interesting detail: Kosuke Yabuki, the director of Mario Kart 8, is cited as “creative director” of Mario Kart Tour. Effectively, the file names and the Bandai Namco page indicate that the 3D assets come from the Mario Kart 8 team - after all, pretty much all of them can be easily ported to the next Mario Kart 7 based game, and it’s likely that the next console Mario Kart game will be based on Mario Kart 7 as well.

Also the fact that Hideki Konno is the manager for the mobile division

so is Smart Device Division part of Nintendo EPD?
And we don't have an MarioWiki article for SRD (and even a mention/article in Wikipedia), since they worked on a lot of Nintendo games.

Your guess is as good as mine - the names of the people involved make it seem like the Smart Devices Division is part of the EPD, but its name make it look as if it’s a separate division.

About SRD, yes, we are definitely missing its coverage. Maybe there was the impression that it was a division of Nintendo, but it’s indeed a subsidiary that has worked on plenty of Nintendo titles - including many Mario ones. Anybody willing to make a page in the wiki to cover them has the green light, as far as I’m concerned.

I refuse to spend a single cent for this game, so that's why.

And with the most recent update, Mario Kart Tour is no longer compatible with my phone. Same principle applies here. Looks like I'm permanently done playing. But I'll still work on my dumb little mspaint project with each new tour. It was fun while it lasted.

For some reason everything on my phone became smaller, even though the display size is still at its usual. This has affected MKT for me too. It's.. odd.. and all I can do is set my display a size bigger, which makes everything bigger than usual. It's missing the good ol' inbetween it used to have.. :(
