One of the appealing aspects of Nintendo’s Mario Kart series is the ability to play against your friends and other people around the world. Unfortunately, multiplayer was one the features that was missing when Nintendo launched Mario Kart Tour, which for those unfamiliar is the mobile version of the game.
Well, the good news is that if multiplayer is something you think that the mobile game is lacking, you’ll be pleased to learn that Nintendo has since announced that they will launching an update for the game this coming March which will finally bring multiplayer to Mario Kart Tour. The date has been set for the 8th of March, 2020 at 8PM PT.
Previously, gamers of Mario Kart Tour had to play against AI that used names that made it seem like they were real players. While it is still a fun game even with AI, playing with real life players is no doubt more fun and adds a degree of challenge due to the unpredictability of playing against humans.
