With the recent Mario Kart Tour release date announcement, discussion and hype for the game have reached a new high amongst the series' fans. Some are excited, some are a little sceptical, but trailers like this are sure to bring the hype regardless.

Google Play has released an extended trailer for the game, and while it doesn't show off much gameplay, it does have everyone's phones zooming about all over the place and slipping on banana peels. Maybe it's just us, but we can't help but like CG trailers that throw Nintendo items and characters into the real world.

Of course, if you missed it yesterday, Nintendo has also released a more traditional gameplay trailer, too. It doesn't tell us how any microtransactions or unlockable characters will work, but you can get a good idea of how the racing itself will control.

As a reminder, Mario Kart Tour launches for free on 25th September. You can pre-register right now on iOS and Android.

Are you thinking of giving the game a try? Can't hurt when it's free, right?
