'Mario Kart Tour' (ALL) Kicks Off Berlin Tour Event

by Rainier on Jan. 13, 2021 @ 9:01 a.m. PST

Mario Kart Tour goes beyond Rainbow Road, with special city courses that let players race through courses inspired by actual locations like New York, Tokyo and Paris.

3 … 2 … 1 … GO! Mario Kart Tour boosts out of the starting gate and into the palms of players’ hands around the world.

In Mario Kart Tour, smartphone owners get to enjoy the thrill of Mario Kart races while also collecting drivers from throughout Nintendo’s rich history of characters, like Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach and Yoshi, as well as a range of sleek karts and gleeful gliders.

Players can choose which drivers, karts and gliders to use in high-speed races across a variety of colorful courses, including new spins on classic Mario Kart tracks, and limited-time new courses highlighting well-known cities from around the world, as well as seasonal events, holidays and special themes. In addition to courses based on these iconic locales and themes, during each event players also have the opportunity to obtain unique variations of Mario Kart drivers, karts and gliders inspired by that event.

The Mario Kart Tour game for smart devices has offered in-game racers a wealth of rocket-fueled recreation around the world, all from the palm of their hands. This month, everyone’s invited to glide and spin through glamorous Berlin. The new Berlin Tour event is available to play now, and runs until Jan. 26 at 9:59 p.m. PT.

In the real world, people can often spot Berlin’s signature red and green men, known as Ampelmännchen, adorning its pedestrian crossings across the city. It’s only fitting that Mario Kart Tour’s visit to Berlin brings its own signature red and green men: Mario and Luigi! Of course, whenever Lakitu’s light turns green, it’s time to burn rubber, so this tour’s featured driver is the mean, green racing machine, Luigi.

Luigi’s dressed to impress with some traditional German flavor in week one of the Berlin Tour – you’ll be able to deploy him in his jaunty new lederhosen getup! It’s fair to say Luigi’s rarely looked this lustrous. Better buckle up, because he’s ready to let loose with some tire screeches in his leather breaches. Try out the new Fast Frank kart or the Butterfly Wings glider, too, for a scenic ride past the iconic Berlin TV Tower.

In week two of the Berlin Tour, Luigi continues to mix it up with the addition of Penguin Luigi, Builder Luigi and Luigi (Classic). Choose from new additions such as the Sushi Racer kart and the Blooper Wingtip glider as you continue your tour through the sights and sounds of Berlin. Keep your eyes peeled for famous landmarks such as the neoclassical monument, the Brandenburg Gate, and the historic East Side Gallery.

Mario Kart Tour is free-to-start, and is available to download for iOS and Android devices. A Nintendo Account is required to play Mario Kart Tour. Players can obtain their in-game registration card by linking their Nintendo Account. Those who do not already have a Nintendo Account can create one here.

For those looking to turbo charge their experience, the Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass is a $4.99 per month subscription service that unlocks 200cc mode and enriches the gameplay experience by providing subscribers with in-game gold gifts for racing in tours and special in-game badges from gold challenges. First-time subscribers can sign up for a two-week free trial. The paid subscription will automatically begin at the end of the free trial period. Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass is not required to play the game, participate in Standard Races or to play with friends or others nearby in real-time multiplayer mode via rooms.
