Mario Kart Tour, the official Mario Kart game for mobile devices, has just launched the Holiday Tour event that celebrates both Christmas and New Year. Nintendo released a short trailer showcasing everything players can look forward to in the Holiday Tour. There are new drivers, tracks, karts, and a whole lot more coming with the Holiday Tour event.
Starting off the festivities are two featured drivers: Party Time Pauline and Reindeer Yoshi. The egg-spitting pink dinosaur Birdo from Super Mario Bros 2 also makes it into the game as a new driver. New Karts have also been added to the game, including the Red Streamliner, Turbo Birdo, Jingle Bells, Platinum Taxi, and Bruiser.
There are also a few new Gliders in Mario Kart Tour. The Holiday Tour event trailer showcases the 2020 Glider, which is the New Year-themed addition to the game. Piston Glider, Pink Flower Glider, and Gift Glider have also been added. Gliders are the parachute-like items drivers use whenever they are launched into the air.
The New York Minute course comes in a new version during the Holiday Tour. The trailer also indicates a new Rainbow Road course will be available.
The Mario Kart Tour Holiday Tour comes with new challenges and Featured Tour Gifts. All players can win a Koopa Troopa driver while Gold Pass holders can win a Yellow Taxi.
