Avid gamers, rejoice! The long-awaited mobile racing game from Nintendo is now live. Much to the delight of the huge Nintendo fanbase that had restlessly been waiting for Mario Kart Tour for mobile devices, the game is finally available to download on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Based on whether you have an Android or iOS-based mobile device, you can head straight either to Apple App Store and Google Play Store to download the game. The Apple App Store description for the game indicated that the servers went live on September 25th at 1:00 PDT (1:30 pm IST).
The game is available on both stores in India. In other words, you can play Mario Kart Tour regardless of the operating system your phone runs on. While the servers seem to be live at the moment, this could vary by regions.
Download the game and then link your Nintendo account to it before proceeding. Those who do not have one will be directed to a webpage where they can create a new account or simply sign up using their Facebook or Google accounts. The account gets activated once you complete two-factor authentication.
The activated account can then be linked to the game. The next step involves returning to the game and trying out a test lap. The game chooses a random character for the trial round.
The game features real world-inspired locations along with some popular ones from the Mario Kart series. Note that the game’s size for Android is about 120MB, and for iOS devices, it is 192.8MB. While it’s a free game, you need to be connected to the internet to play it.
Alternatively, you can make in-app purchases if you don’t mind shelling out 159 INR to 5,500 INR. The game features an impressive array of characters, karts, and gliders, all of which can be collected and upgraded.
