Take a whiz around Yoshi’s Island (not that one) in Mario Kart Tour today

Do you say Yo-Shee or Yosh-ee?

This weekend brought an end to the recent Hammer Bros. Tour in Nintendo’s mobile racer Mario Kart Tour. But fear ye not, speed freaks, as a brand new tour starts today – this time featuring everyone’s favourite long-tongue dinosaur, Yoshi.

The Yoshi Tour tour will see Mario, Luigi, Peach and friends get into their 100ccs in gear for a whiz around a Yoshi-shaped island, (though not necessarily Yoshi’s Island) for the latest leg of the game’s global circuit.

In fact, Mario Kart Tour seems to have forgotten about the “World” part of its “World Tour.” Although earlier legs were held in Tokyo, Paris, and London, recent courses have been more inclined to theme themselves after characters in the Super Mario universe, rather than real-world locations. Regardless, the Yoshi Tour goes live in-game today.

Mario Kart Tour is available now on iOS and Android devices.
