An upcoming multiplayer update for Mario Kart Tour will add “new ways to play” and cancel gold races.
Mario Kart Tour has been out since 2019 and the next major update will try to add some variety to the multiplayer experience of this popular mobile racing game. According to Nintendo Life, a post on the official Mario Kart Tour Twitter account says that the developer is “adding new ways to play multiplayer.” Exactly what those methods are is a mystery, but thankfully we won’t have to wait long to find out as the update hits mobile devices late next month.
Another change currently in development is the removal of Gold Races. Like standard races, they allow you to compete against up to seven other players from around the world, but have different rules and require you to be a Gold Pass subscriber to participate. In the future, the modes “Standard Race” and “Gold Race” will be merged. “A number of other changes” are also being developed, and more details are promised in early September.
Last month, data scientists uncovered a number of hints that Mario Kart Tour would soon be playable on PC via officially supported emulation.
