Nintendo’s mobile version of Mario Kart is about to get a lot more traditional. In a new sneak-peek video, Mario Kart Tour’s official Twitter account shows off the next update’s landscape mode feature. This will flip the orientation for a more familiar experience to fans of the console games.

The update is scheduled to drop on July 21st.
