It turns out that Mario Kart Tour could have some Battle Mode content. This report comes from an enthusiastic Twitter user who started to do some digging into the title.
The person in question goes by the Twitter handle of Koopavocelot (via kart_tour), and the content that this user found reveals several new battle courses with individual sound files for GCN Cookie Land, Ds Twilight House, Tour Paris Promenade, New York Minute, and GBA Battle Course 1. This is quite the discovery, and fans of the mobile racer should be quite enthused.
This doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a Battle Mode, but if there were to be this addition in Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo would need to make some serious alterations to the servers before they could ever incorporate a huge multiplayer experience like this. The mere thought of one is freezing the game on countless mobiles around the world as we speak.
Take a look at the Twitter thread below regarding the topic if you want a visual representation of what we’re talking about.
The game has seen some steady improvements since it was released in 2019 on mobile devices, but after a promising start to life, it was halted by its fairly basic content. Earlier this year, Nintendo added Miis to the game in a series of waves. The introduction of these little avatars also offered players the opportunity to select several new racing suits, ranging from outfits for Peach, Donkey Kong, and Mario.
The news outfits might have been easy on the eye, but they weren’t included just for their aesthetic prowess. Each outfit came with a special skill, and even some nifty little tricks to tackle your fellow drivers, giving you a slight edge to the finish line.
