Mario Kart Tour: Second multiplayer beta open to all players – up to date


of André Linken
Nintendo has announced a second multiplayer beta for the mobile racing game Mario Kart Tour. In contrast to the first test phase, all players can participate this time – without special requirements. The developers plan to announce further details shortly.

In December of last year, the go-ahead was given for the first multiplayer beta in the mobile racing game Mario Kart Tour. However, there was a huge catch at the time: only those players who had a valid Gold Pass could participate. The latter costs 5.49 euros a month and also grants access to additional content. Another test phase is to follow shortly – without this restriction.

As Nintendo recently announced via Twitter, preparations are already underway for the second multiplayer beta of Mario Kart Tour. This time all players should be able to participate and not just the owners of the paid Gold Pass. No further details are known so far. For example, it is currently not clear when the starting signal for the second test phase should be given. Nintendo plans to disclose this and additional information in the near future. We will of course keep you up to date in this regard.

The Free2Play racing game Mario Kart Tour was originally launched in September 2019 for mobile platforms. Although the racer did not do particularly well in our test, it apparently went down very well with the fans. Shortly after the release, the game was able to break a download record and secure the title "Nintendo's most successful mobile game" – ahead of such competition as Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. In just one week, the racing game had over 90 million downloads worldwide.
