If you were previously a Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass subscriber you were able to play parts of the multiplayer beta. Starting Sunday, the new game mode opens up to everyone whether you are a paid subscriber or not.
This is exciting news for Mario Kart Tour players everywhere, as this is one of the features that will bring some much-needed life back into the game. When this game launched, the AI opponents had names that resembled real players which confused a lot of people.
Will this new feature bring back a lot of players who grew bored with the game?
