In an in-game update, developer DeNA says it’s “now investigating” the Android crash issue and will announce further information later.
“Mario Kart Tour version 1.2.0 is currently experiencing system issues on Android devices,” the message reads. “Users will not be able to proceed after initial Nintendo logo screen. Please do Not update your app version to 1.2.0 in order to avoid this issue.”
The Version 1.2.0 update adds a new ticket screen, a drift button for certain control types, and a bonus for players who finish a race during a frenzy.
Mario Kart Tour’s next event will be the Winter tour, developer DeNA announced.
The Winter tour starts on November 19 at 10pm PT (6am BT) and will add a number of themed unlockables, plus the DK Pass track from Mario Kart DS.
The mobile racer’s tours are fortnightly events which add a new course and unlockable content, often based on a real world location such as London, Tokyo and Paris.
DeNA will hold a beta test for “real-time” Mario Kart Tour multiplayer in December, the game’s developer has announced. The beta test will be limited to subscribers of the game’s paid Gold Pass.
