Beta Players Show Off Mario Kart Tour for Mobile


Super Mario Run was the first time the famed plumber hit the mobile screen. It has been followed by other Nintendo titles like Fire Emblem Hero’s and Animal Crossing.

Beta play looks to pull elements from the past Mario Kart versions. MacRumors states they are resurrected from the original Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Double Dash, and Mario Kart 7. The same article names playable characters of Shy Guy, Luigi, Toad, Peach, Toadette, and Waluigi. Levels are divided into 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and 200cc for difficulty. Beta testers are saying though the game heavily relies on in-app purchases for “rare” unlocked characters. The game is in testing currently though so beta users cannot buy anything yet. This may change in time.

Super Mario Run was a simple one handed play that relies on timing to be successful. Testers say the new Kart will be one handed also.

Currently, the beta is only for Android devices until June 4th. It will be released later this summer for iOS and Android.
