Mario Kart Tour News, Vol. 2 - He finally arrives October 22nd, 2019

What's in the news today?

The second episode of Mario Kart Tour news is ready for all to see. This episode covers the latest characters to join the game, which aren't much of a secret at this point!

Trying to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with Ring Fit Adventure's Ring-Con

Not the best way to play

What is the Ring-Con if not a giant steering wheel? At least one person has thought that, which is why they decided to give Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a go with the Ring-Con. If you're looking to just play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with basic steering, the Ring-Con will work without a problem. When you try to drift or use items, you're pretty much screwed!

King Boo and Luigi's Mansion being added to Mario Kart Tour

All hail King Boo!

Luigi was added to Mario Kart Tour the other day, and now the Luigi's Mansion track is officially on its way. It's the perfect time of the year to give it a go!

Along with the Luigi's Mansion track, you'll also be able to hunt down King Boo in the game! He's coming to tear up the track and take out the competition.

Luigi makes his way to Mario Kart Tour, just in time for the Halloween Cup

Luigi number 1

We knew he was on the way sometime this month, but we didn't know when. Nintendo has confirmed that Luigi is now available in Mario Kart Tour, just waiting for you to hop in and check him out. I know quite a few people were sad to see him not included at launch, so hopefully this makes up for it!

Remember, the Halloween Cup is kicking off in Mario Kart Tour on Oct. 22nd, 2019, and runs until Nov. 5th, 2019.

Mario Kart Tour was the third most-dowloaded mobile game in Q3 2019

A third place finish in just 7 days!

Mario Kart Tour launched late in Sept. 2019, and it came out of the starting gate with a huge burst of speed. According to Sensor Tower, the game rushed straight to the third position for most downloaded mobile games in Q3. Keep in mind that Q3 closed with the end of September, so that's an amazing feat! The game cranked out 86 million downloads in that short amount of time, but did not break into the top 100 grossing games.
