MIDNIGHTREBELS-MARIO KART

MARIO KART TOUR HAS ADDED A SINGAPORE RACE TRACK AND A MERLION KART

Nintendo’s Mario Kart has become synonymous with virtual kart racing as the game that started it all and is arguably the most well-known game of its kind.

The sub-series has become so popular that it has spawned an entire slew of spin-offs that allow players to continue racing with their favorite residents of the Mushroom Kingdom. For long-time fans, there are a plethora of options for racing, ranging from arcade cabinets to remote control AR experiences.

Naturally, this also meant that a mobile game would be inevitable, and in 2019, Nintendo finally gave fans Mario Kart Tour to play on their smartphones. The game, which is a simplified version of the classic Mario Kart game, has been around for quite some time.

The game’s design has been the subject of a number of criticisms, including those directed at premium season passes and the game’s perpetual portrait mode. Nonetheless, Mario Kart Tour continues to develop new content for players to enjoy.

This is the case with its most recent season, dubbed the Singapore Tour, in which Mario and the gang will race around a cartoon version of the Southeast Asian island nation.

In contrast to previous entries in the series, Mario Kart Tour makes extensive use of real-world locations, as well as returning tracks from previous Mario Kart games, to great effect. There have been tracks based on cities such as New York, Berlin, Sydney, Tokyo, and other locations.

The new race track, which is called Singapore Speedway, is the first in the game to be based on a city in Southeast Asia, and it is the first of its kind. It may not be an exact replica, but it does include sprawling skyscrapers, Marina Bay, and the iconic Merlion statue, which is a good substitute.

As a result of the tropical setting, there will be a special Merlion-themed kart for players to unlock, as well as a special Vacation Luigi skin that will be perfect for the track’s tropical setting.

Our region, Southeast Asia, will begin playing in the Mario Kart Tour event on December 12 when the Singapore Tour kicks off. You can get your hands on the game by visiting the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
