It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Mario Kart Tour


The season of giving?

Nintendo's mobile-racer Mario Kart Tour is gearing up for the holiday season, with the latest reveal of a new Winter Tour, which will get underway tomorrow, November 19, at 22:00 PT.

The event was announced on Twitter by developer DeNO, advising racers to bust out their snow tires and chains for "a flurry of fun". The message was accompanied by a simple image of a snowman and a Christmas tree.

With regards to the new events unlockable items, we'll have to wait a little longer to find out what characters and skins will be filling Mario Kart Tour's reward pipe - which is like Santa's sliegh but with terrible odds you'll get a gift you want. We do know, at the very least, that Mario Kart DS' DK Pass circuit will be added to MKT's circulation of tracks.

And if there is a "Santa Suit Mario" variant, I'll eat my own weight in mince pies.
