But First,

What Exactly Is Mario Kart Tour?

This is a mobile app that is available on Android as well as IOS devices and as mentioned above it is a racing game that is a simplified version of the classic game on Nintendo. 

The cartoony characters usually race around the tracks and they use silly items such as shells and banana peels to trip other players.

Now, what makes the game fun is its many features and courses that are seen in the previous game as well. There are new courses that are inspired by real-world locations such as Tokyo and New York. 

These real-world courses usually get swapped out every two weeks so you can have plenty of fun with new locations to race through. Currently, there is a roaster of around 34 characters that the players can acquire. 

You will see familiar faces such as Peach, Bowser, and Mario. You will also see brand new racers such as Pauline from the original Nintendo Switch game and Super Mario Odyssey.

You are also going to find familiar items, karts, and gliders. These you must have seen from the previous games. The game also gives you the appearance of racing against other players by slapping on their user names to AIs.
