With the likes of Mario Kart Tour exclusively tied to mobile devices, it can be frustratingly annoying to series fans who eagerly await the next home console release. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best-selling Mario Kart game of all time and yet, instead of getting any DLC to add to the game’s continued success, Mario Kart Tour and occasionally Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, get all the new content.
Regardless of whether it feels feel or not, it is refreshing to see Nintendo continue to support Mario Kart Tour when previous mobile games, Miitomo and Dr. Mario World have both been discontinued. So, with a new tour set to get underway for the mobile app, Nintendo has taken the time to showcase a number of the race tracks based on real world cities and having gathered together all the videos shared exclusively on Twitter as part of an event, please allow us to showcase each city on show:
Like what you see? Or completely hate it. Whatever the case, we would love to hear your thoughts on these real-world based tracks.
Tours take place in various real-world cities in #MarioKartTour .

You just may see the new city course where the next tour will take place.
