Mario Kart Tour has received another shakeup this week as Mario and the gang head to Berlin. The best news? Luigi's whipped out his lederhosen to celebrate.
Available as we speak and running until 26th January at 9.59 pm PT, the new Berlin Tour will see all your favourite Mario Kart characters racing through the streets of Germany's capital city. The tour hopes to make the most of its Berlin inspiration by substituting the city's signature red and green pedestrian signals, known as Ampelmännchen, for Nintendo's own red and green men, Mario and Luigi.
This all means that Luigi's being given the spotlight he truly deserves, serving as the tour's featured driver and being treated to a number of new outfits. In week one, you'll get to enjoy the lederhosen getup pictured above, and week two will introduce Penguin Luigi, Builder Luigi and Luigi (Classic).
There's also a new Fast Frank kart and a Butterfly Wings glider, and you might soot famous landmarks like the neoclassical monument, the Brandenburg Gate, and the historic East Side Gallery.
Do you play Mario Kart Tour on your mobile when you get the chance? Let us know how you're getting on with it in the comments below.
...lmfao I give this game a lot of flack but the costumes it gives us are amazing. Still hoping for those costumes to step outside of Mario Kart Tour into Mario Kart 9 (because they're absolutely never going to be in 8, not without modding anyway).
Funny how this is a thing since they removed the Tipis in Sunset Wilds.
I would like to see Beefeater Luigi next.
I’ll probably wait for Pink Gold Lederhosen Luigi to be released.
WHY IS THIS NOT IN MARIO KART 8!!! OUTRAGE!!!
Mario Kart Tour, such a waste of creative power
A Lederhose in Berlin? Would be suited better in Munich.
Update deluxe. Or add some dlc
Thank goodness he didn't whip out his frankfurter instead! 😆
Love the game love the updates
@infernogott unless it was a pink or rainbow one
Mario Tennis aces promotional art was not lying. Look at the size of that sausage!
Why isn't their also a Daisy wearing a Dirndl
@everynowandben have you ever been german speaking country at october fest time. seriously
Mario Kart 8 DX has some looooong legs on it on my house.
They'd be even longer, if Nintendo bothered to add any more content 😏
Luigi whips out his Lederhosen (smirks)
It’s a better mobile game than you think and way better than at launch.
Isn’t this a racial stereotype?
Oh boy, break out the Weisswurst!
Lederhosen in Berlin. That makes absolutely no sense.
Jemand bei Nintendo hat wohl Berlin mit Bayern verwechselt. Lederhosen sind mehr eine bayerische Tradition.
This was German. Have fun translating it.
@mariomaster96 I know right?!
@RareFan it's really easy to translate!
Iemand bij Nintendo heeft Berlijn met Beieren verwisseld. Lederhosen zijn een Beierse traditie!
They constantly confuse Deutsch, with Nederlands too. That's why we speak "Dutch". Eh we did that too ourselves, starting our anthem with "I've got German blood!"
(wait they wanted an English translation?! )
@JustMe Ampelmännchen are more of an Eastern German thing; a remnant of a collapsed political system.
It saddens me how little love Nintendo gives to proper Mario Kart 8...
@ottospooky No. Its not. Its a traditional outfit, its not like stereotyping any minority. Just like Kimonos in Japan, they represent their country culture.
@RareFan sure, but the outfit its not representing the city, more like the country as a whole.
@Zequio I’m fine with that. Or, I was until i saw that he was holding a sausage.
@JustMe hej, um... i is kinda offended. I have lived in Germany and I have German citizenship.
That means, Berlin Tour started 2021 badly due to the slight controversy regarding Lederhosen Luigi
