Nintendo has officially launched Mario Kart Tour for iOS/Android! The game is free to start with subscription programs for additional content.
In celebration of the game’s launch, Nintendo released a special Mario Kart Tour News #1 video onto their YouTube channel, breaking down the game system.
About the Game
The game will feature courses inspired by real-world cities and will rotate them out every two weeks. Players can also play on classic routes such as rainbow road and Bowser’s Castle, which is featured in the video games.
Characters like Mario, Bowser, Peach, and others will be available to play, but will also get “variations that incorporate the local flavor of cities featured in the game,” according to the official game description. A new Frenzy mode is also available, which is said to “gives an unlimited supply of a certain item and makes you invincible,” for a period of short time.
Other features include an online ranking system and bonus challenges that give you specific goals to complete that don’t always rely on winning. Players can also earn badges for completing challenges that can be displayed alongside their name.
