A recent report has confirmed that Mario Kart Tour will get its first real-time multiplayer mode on mobile phones this December. There are reports that Nintendo will run a beta test for the new game mode before the end of the year. In order to confirm the news, Nintendo reached to the social media platform and shared that the real-time multiplayer mode will be introduced to the game in December.
Nintendo, in one of the posts over the social media platform also shared that the multiplayer test will be restricted to players who subscribe to Mario Kart Tour’s Gold Pass.
In order to spread the news that the company is introducing a new multiplayer mode to the game, Mario Kart Tour took the concern to the Twitter and in one of the posts over the social media platform wrote:
“A real-time multiplayer beta test is planned for December and will be available to #MarioKartTour Gold Pass subscribers. Stay tuned here for more details coming soon”.
Mario Kart Tour’s Gold Pass costs $4.99 a month, and it provides users with access to the fastest speed level, 200cc, and other cosmetic bonuses of the popular karting title. Another advantage is early access to multiplayer, and a way for Nintendo to restrict the online pool for now.
In September, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour for Android and iOS devices, but the mobile game shipped a franchise staple without proper multiplayer mode. “Instead, players race against computer-controlled opponents in Mario Kart Tour’s stripped-down take on the 27-year-old franchise”.
There are reports that the Mario Kart Tour has been set up in a Halloween-themed event, and the game includes new racers Luigi, Waluigi, and King Boo. Besides this, the game also has a witch costume for Rosalina, and new tracks, including Luigi’s Mansion.
