That’s right, Mario Kart Tour is now available on Android for all to install!
Like any Mario Kart game, you get to race around courses with your favorite Nintendo characters. Since this is Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo has tried to create courses inspired by real-world cities in addition to the classics. They plan on trying to rotate featured tours every two weeks and provide special character variations depending on locale.
As you race (in apparently only takes one finger to drive), you’ll grab items, battle and unlock other characters, collect badges, and try and nab first place. You’ll be able to increase your online rank, change karts and gliders, and participate in bonus challenges.
It’s Mario Kart – you know how to play.
Mario Kart Tour is free to play, but you’ll need a persistent internet connection in order to do so. You’ll find advertising too, and don’t be surprised if the game tries to make you pay to keep playing for long periods of time, since almost all of Nintendos games are like that.
If you aren’t able to play just yet, it looks like that’s because Nintendo hasn’t quite fired up servers. They should be live shortly.
