It looks like that Mario Kart Tour is about to face serious competition in the mobile racing space, as Nexon’s much-anticipated kart racing game KartRider Rush+, has just garnered three million sign ups since its pre-registration campaign kicked off a week ago. This is a huge number, especially for a kart racing franchise, that previously hasn’t had much success in the West.
With KartRider Rush+, Nexon promises a racing game that can be enjoyed by rookie drivers and veterans alike. The vast array of different game modes available includes story mode, time trial, speed race, ranked race, arcade mode, training camp and license test. This upcoming arcade kart racer set to offer a ton of content, including 50 race tracks, 20 karts, 7 different game modes and a bunch of customization options, that should appeal to many kart racing fans.
Based on the iconic KartRider franchise, KartRider Rush+ aims to offer a greatly enhanced karting experience compared to the previous iterations and will come with a few additional features to set it apart from the competition. For one, the game will introduce the mentorship system, that allows rookies to get help and advice from top-ranked drivers to improve their skills. In return, the mentors will receive mentorship perks and rewards. You will also have the chance to participate in the club system, that lets you partner up with other racers to complete challenges and daily activities, as well as earn more rewards.
The Home feature is another exciting addition to the game, that lets you customize your personal space with different in-game accessories, interact with friends and take part in mini-games.
