25 September 2019

Mario Kart Tour has been given an official release date complete with a gameplay trailer as the franchise officially makes its way to mobile devices for the first time, you can expect to drive around the Mushroom Kingdom next month.

Mario Kart Tour has launched today, 25th September, as it makes its way to mobile devices for the first time; you can expect to drive around the Mushroom Kingdom NOW on iPhone, iPad and Android. We've gathered all of the Mario Kart Tour information and details on the release date, characters, price tracks and courses that you will need.

Mario Kart Tour will include many features from past Mario Kart games including the gliders, which originally appeared in Mario Kart 7, allowing racers to fly. The game will also feature many courses from the franchise' past.

When Is The Release Date For Mario Kart Tour?

The game is set to release on the 25th September 2019 for iOS and Android. It is available for pre-order/pre-registration now.

The game is FREE to play - it would not be a suprise to see in-app purchases and microtransactions feature once the game launches or later down the line.

All information can be found on the Mario Kart Tour wiki.

What Is Mario Kart Tour?

Racers will play the traditional fan-favourite game, that they all know and love, across real-world inspired locations and Mario Kart series favourites. Items and characters will also be returning to Mario Kart Tour and many returning from Mario Kart: Double Dash. Players can collect a variety of drivers, karts and gliders as well as upgrades to find your perfect combo.

Characters

Upon launching the game for the first time, players start with either Toad or Toadette. Unlike other Mario Kart games, there are no weight classes between characters, but they are sorted by their rarity of unlocking them, via opening up randomized green pipes with rubies. There are three tiers of rarity: Normal, Super, and High-End. While the Normal characters are easier to unlock, rarer characters have a greater amount of starting points, have a higher top speed, higher coin-earning rates, likelihood of picking up mid-race weapons and items, and have more favored courses. Once players clear the tutorial, they are rewarded with a random Super-class character. In Gold Rush, players play as Gold Mario.
