Mario Kart Tour adding "new ways to play" in September

Smartphone spin-off Mario Kart Tour will receive a multiplayer update in September that will add “new ways to play”.

This seems likely to be the game’s Battle Mode update, after files indicating its inclusion were found a few months ago.

“With the Mario Kart Tour multiplayer update at the end of September, we’ll be adding new ways to play multiplayer,” Nintendo wrote“and the removal of Gold Races (only available to Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass subscribers; see in-game notification for details). Check back early September for more info!”

In June, files related to a Battle Mode for Mario Kart Tour were discovered by data miners. These include sounds for GCN Cookie Land, DS Twilight House, Tour Paris Promenade, New York Minute, and GBA Battle Course 1.

The September update coincides with Nintendo’s mobile Mario Kart turning three years old and so far it shows no signs of slowing down.

Powered by gacha-style microtransactions, Tour continues to receive new courses, karts, and characters on a regular basis.

The game’s development is also tied to the ongoing rollout of DLC courses for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch, whose recently added Sky-High Sundae map is coming to Tour.
