Mobile game Mario Kart Tour is a decent new way to play the iconic series on your smart device, but even with its newly improved control layout, some players just can’t be doing with its touchscreen interface.
If you’ve grown up playing Mario Kart on your favourite consoles we guess this is pretty understandable, but what if you could use a more traditional controller setup to enjoy the game? Well, YouTube user Did It Work? has done exactly that, hooking up a Wii Nunchuk to play the game in style.
If you remember our recent article about using a SNES Mouse to play Super Mario Run, you’ll realise that the video below is from the very same person. Just like before, getting a Nunchuk to work with an iPhone isn’t as straightforward as you might think, with specialist adaptors being needed that can not only connect a Nunchuk to your phone, but also offer full mouse mode support.
With all this in place, Did It Work? channel owner Niles Mitchell is able to use the Nunchuk’s control stick to steer the karts and navigate the game’s menus, all while using the Z button to select options and use items. Check it out in the video below (gameplay starts at around the 2:20 mark).
We’d take a controller over a phone screen any day, but what about you? Would you play Mario Kart Tour more if you could somehow use a Joy-Con to steer? Are you happy enough playing on your phone as standard? Let us know in the comments.
