The Tokyo tour begins on Wednesday at September 9 at 7am BST / 2am EDT, introducing a new track based on the Japanese city, as well as additional retro tracks, karts, gliders and a Japan-themed Mario variant.
Rosalina is one of a large number of drivers known to be in line for future Mario Kart Tour appearances, including fellow missing-in-action characters Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser Jr. and more.
We’re also expecting the classic tracks Choco Island 2 (SNES), Kalimari Desert (N64), Luigi’s Mansion (DS), Mario Circuit (3DS) and Waluigi Pinball (DS) to be added to the game in future updates.
The Tokyo tour will see the end of the current New York tour and its tour gifts, spotlight drivers, karts and gliders will no longer be available. However, these items may reappear in future pipes, Nintendo said.
Mario Kart Tour is estimated to have been downloaded 90.1 million times across Android and iOS devices in its first week of availability.
Nintendo is expected to introduce online Mario Kart Tour multiplayer in a future update.
