Mario Kart Tour is a Mario Kart video game for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U game systems, and is developed by Next Level Games.


In Mario Kart Tour, Coins, which appeared in Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart: Super Circuit and Mario Kart 7, will reappear and will, like in Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Super Circuit, make you go faster. Also, like Mario Kart 7, the player will be able to go back underwater and perform Mini-turbos easier. Also, a new item called the P-Wing lets you get to first place in just a second.

Battle Courses


Items are an important part of racing, as they can help or hinder you. Items can be collected by driving through an Item Box on the courses. Once a player has driven through an Item Box, that will start the Item Roulette that appears in the top left corner of the screen. Depending on the place you are in, results in a different item, as you would tend to get Banana Peels, Green Shells and Red Shells if you were in first, while a Bullet Bill, Blue Spiny Shell and Lightning if you were in last.
