Update (Mon 9th Mar, 2020 09:30 GMT): The Mario Kart Tour multiplayer content has now officially arrived. Nintendo is celebrating the launch with a retweet campaign on Twitter which could end up seeing each and every player receive 30 rubies and an in-game badge.
Original Article (Tue 3rd Mar, 2020 03:05 GMT): When the beta of Mario Kart Tour arrived on mobile devices last May, it didn't take long for players around the world to work out that it didn't actually include proper match-making. As we now know, the game grabs profiles of other players, which are then represented as CPU during a race.
Now, on 8th March, Mario Kart's mobile outing on Android and iOS devices will finally add real multiplayer. This follows on from a Gold Pass subscriber beta test last December. This new mode will allow you to compete against seven other players (with friends or others nearby, or with racers from around the world).
Here are the full details from the official Mario Kart Tour Twitter account:
