Turning the racing game upside-down, Mario Kart Tour gets a new event with a Sydney course

Today, Nintendo announced that its newest limited time event for Mario Kart Tour is now available for mobile devices. Featuring a location in Sydney and new characters available in a limited-time Ocean Pipe, there’s a lot to love for fans of the free-to-play title.

The Mario Kart Tour smart device game has provided thrill-hungry racers with a rollicking tour of the globe, all from the driver’s seat of a colorful kart and the palm of your hand. This month, you’re personally invited to drift through the land Down Under with Mario and friends. The new Sydney Tour event is available to play now and runs until May 4 at 10:59 p.m. PT.

Get ready to take in the sights as you zip through the new Sydney Sprint course and its variants, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and some of the world’s loveliest beaches. Try not to get any sand in your muffler, mate! Starting in the first week of the tour, available now through May 4 at 10:59 p.m. PT, you can find Baby Mario (Koala), the Jet Cruiser kart and the Surf Master glider in the spotlight.

In the Ocean Pipe, from April 24 at 11 p.m. PT through April 29 at 10:59 p.m. PT, you’ll be able to grab your swimmers and dive right in! Here’s your chance to find the Gold Cheep Charger kart, the Gold Cheep Snorkel kart and other beachy-keen karts and gliders. We’re sure you’ll do great out there, whether you’re competing from the race track or from the comfort of your rumpus room.

Petrol heads’ll go bananas for week two from April 27 at 11 p.m. PT through May 4 at 10:59 p.m. PT, where you’ll find Mario (Swimwear), Rosalina (Swimwear), the Cheep Snorkel kart, the Blue Soda kart, the Blooper Wingtip glider and the Luma Parafoil glider. This one’s a real beaut!
