Mario Kart Tour Gets iOS and Android Release Date

Mario Kart Tour will launch on iOS and Android on September 25 and will be free-to-play, Nintendo has announced. Those who want to be notified once the game is available to download can pre-register now via the App Store and Google Play.

This new Mario Kart game will have more than just Rainbow Road, it’ll have special city courses that let players race through courses inspired by actual locations from around the world like New York, Tokyo, and Paris. Via a press release, Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, shared how unique the latest Mario Kart game will be for all players: “For the first time ever in a Mario Kart game, players can drive past giant Warp Pipes while drifting through a New York-inspired cityscape, all with the swipe of a finger. Whether you’re an experienced Mario Kart pro or just getting your Mushroom Kingdom driver’s license, Mario Kart Tour is a game for everyone that brings some of Nintendo’s most beloved characters into the hands of players around the world.”

In Mario Kart Tour, players have the chance to experience the endless racing fun of Mario Kart via mobile, and collect drivers that we all know and love, like Mario, as well as karts and gliders. Players will have the option to choose which drivers, karts and gliders to use in races across a variety of courses, including new takes on classic courses and special city courses.

With the city courses, they’ll be special in-game event courses inspired by real-world locations, and will only be available during specific time periods. In addition to courses based on iconic locales, some Mario Kart characters will get “variations” that incorporate the local flavor of cities featured in the game.
