Mario Kart Tour (マリオ カート ツアー) is the newest title in the Mario Kart series. It is the third Mario game released for mobile operating systems, after Super Mario Run and Dr. Mario World. It was announced on January 31, 2018, and was originally scheduled for release by March 2019 but was later on released on September 25, 2019, in Japan, Oceania, Asia, North America, and Europe.

While the game is designed for mobile devices, much like the game's predecessors on Nintendo handhelds (Super Circuit, DS and 7 on dedicated handhelds, and 8 Deluxe on the hybrid Nintendo Switch), it is also expected to support tablets and even computers with a compatible mobile OS.

Trivia

  • Nintendo announced Mario Kart Tour via Twitter on January 31, 2018.
  • Mario Kart Tour is designed for non-Nintendo devices, and as with Super Mario Run, it can be expected to have significant differences compared to releases for dedicated gaming consoles. Some of its various features include:
    • A premium subscription that costs $4.99 called the Gold Pass.
    • Nintendo Network support
    • In-game currency (Rubies)
    • Friend lists
  • Mario Kart Tour is the ninth release of Mario Kart as consumer software, but as it omits the number 9 in its name, it could indicate that Nintendo distinguishes it from the main Mario Kart series.
  • This is technically the fifth handheld game of the franchise after Super Circuit, DS, 7, and 8 Deluxe.
  • Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 are the only games in the main series without a currently-confirmed returning stage in this game.
  • This game is one of the only games of the Mario Kart franchise to have three items inside a single item box.
  • In beta mode, emeralds were used instead of rubies.
