It was announced recently that Japan’s MariCar attraction that sees tourists donning Mario Kart outfits and driving game-inspired vehicles on the road would be shut down. However, the unofficial Nintendo service remains in business under a new name called MariMobility.
Nintendo handed a cease and desist to the company, alongside an order to pay nearly $90,000 USD in damages for all the accidents tourists have caused in the carts, as well as for intellectual property violation. It is currently unknown if the company has a deadline for when they must stop its service, or if it is ignoring Nintendo’s demand altogether. But after these most recent photos, it is speculated the battle between both companies is likely to continue.
