Mario Kart Tour is getting a new update from developer DeNA, finally adding the much-anticipated Battle Mode to the game, its first inclusion in three years.

The two introductory course for Battle Mode include GBA Battle Course 1 and GCN Cookie Land, with the new tour kicking off on October 4th at 11pm PT / October 5th at 8am CET.

Along with the update, you'll also be getting a swanky new Green Racing Suit for your Mii characters as part of the 'Wave 16' drop, which is nice!

As mentioned previously, Mario Kart Tour will also be introducing the Spotlight Shop, a new way to enjoy the game's many customisable options without the use of annoying gacha elements.
