Nintendo has brought many of its IPs over to mobile in recent years. You'll find the chill Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, and Mario-themed games garnishing the Play Store pages. In 2019, Mario Kart Tour joined this roster, and it's every bit as good as you'd expect a Mario Kart game to be.
Mario Kart Tour features familiar characters from the series, including Princess Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong, and, of course, the mustached plumber himself, Mario. There's the usual hectic racing with powerups and drifting galore. Racing well and collecting points allow you to unlock new characters, karts, and much more. Best of all, Mario Kart Tour is free, making it the most accessible entry in the series.
■ Endless Mario Kart fun at your fingertips!
The Mario Kart series known and loved by many is ready to take the world by storm – one smart device at a time! With just one finger, you can steer and drift with ease and sling devastating items as you go for the gold in cups filled with new and classic Mario Kart courses.
■ Nab 1st place with items and Frenzy mode!
In Mario Kart Tour you have access to an arsenal of powerful items that can mix things up on the racetrack! Turn up the heat by activating the new Frenzy mode, which gives an unlimited supply of a certain item and makes you invincible! Make the most of the ensuing chaos, as Frenzy mode only lasts a short time!
■ Collect drivers, karts, badges, and more!
Earn Grand Stars by racing or fire off the featured pipe to receive more drivers, karts, and gliders! You can also proudly display badges, earned by completing certain challenges, next to your in-game name!
■ Bonus challenge courses put a twist on traditional races!
In certain races, 1st place isn't always the goal. With names like "Vs. Mega Bowser" and "Goomba Takedown," these bonus challenge courses demand a different approach to gameplay and strategy!
■ Race to increase your online rank!
Boost with the best of 'em! Your high scores will determine how you compare to other players all over the world. Keep practicing and trying out different combinations of drivers, karts, and gliders to increase your score and rise to the top!
