Multi-player titles on the mobile are nothing new, as you can compete in massive games, even against 99 players in a battle royale. So when a new game comes out that aims to create competitions, you’ll want to go with that multiplayer, something that Mario Kart Tour was not doing at the time. Now it’s your turn to rectify that.
Nintendo made sure that their mobile racing game would have a multiplayer mode, and that’s where it comes in: with a first beta that was held weeks ago, where only players with the golden pass could participate, and with the second beta, which is now active. With a new feature: anyone can play, it’s open (for limited time only 😔). Would you like to compete in exciting races with real players? Well, you can say goodbye to the NPCs.
Mario Kart Tour race with eight real players
Although Mario Kart Tour has always used real player names to create competitions, these competitors have always been controlled by the machine. This explains the ease of winning most trophies, even if it’s not always easy to win: Skill and strategy have always been the best capital to win the trophies.
After a first closed beta for players who subscribed to the golden pass, Nintendo opens the second beta by making it public and introducing a new feature within the game: the location permit. To access the multiplayer beta, the mobile phone must locate the user so that it knows which other online participants are nearby. This is especially useful when creating rooms, for example: not only can you play with the friends you have on your Mario Kart Tour contact list, but also with all those who are within a few metres of the game’s host. This makes it easy to create a local multiplayer game.
We need to remember that although multiplayer is open to all users, everything that goes with it continues in beta. In this new version, games flow very well without exaggerated latency in either WiFi mode or under a mobile network connection. And it has been an incentive for traditional game since then The races are much crazier and more unpredictable: The multiplayer fits very well with the Mario Kart Tour.
