It starts on January 14 at 10pm PT (Jan 15 at 1am ET / 6am UK) and will introduce at least two new drivers to the game.
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.
The game’s first tour event was based on New York City, with players able to unlock Pauline from Super Mario Odyssey, plus a New York-themed kart and glider.
The ongoing New Year Tour sees all previously event-exclusive drivers, karts and gliders available in the game’s gacha-like Pipe mechanic, with slightly boosted appearance rates (although still less than 1%).
