Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour is almost here.

Initially set for a March 2019 release, then briefly delayed followed by a closed beta launch, Nintendo has finally announced it’s bringing Mario Kart Tour to the masses.

Mario Kart Tour will be available to both Android and iOS users on September 25th, with pre-registration now open.

Nintendo didn’t give many details about the mobile-only racer, though a previous report and a new teaser reveal Mario Kart Tour will feature one-handed controls that allow the player to swipe their thumb to control their kart. The kart also accelerates automatically.

The game is free-to-start and will come with, as expected, a plethora of in-game purchases.

“Mario and friends go global in this new Mario Kart as they race around courses inspired by real-world cities in addition to classic Mario Kart courses! These destinations will be featured in tours that rotate every two weeks!” the description of the game reads.
