After four years of regular updates–a mixture of brand-new content and remastered classic tracks from games past–Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart Tour will no longer receive new content after its October 4 update.
The news was confirmed via an in-game message presented to all players upon logging in, which details the schedule for the next three in-game events, or “tours.” A small paragraph after the schedule confirms that, when the next Battle Tour begins, it will mark the end of the addition of new content for the game.
“From 10/04/2023 (Wed) on, tours will consist of content from tours that have appeared before,” the message reads. “No new courses, drivers, karts, or gliders will be added following the Battle Tour beginning 10/04/2023 (Wed). We hope you continue to enjoy playing Mario Kart Tour.”
The game introduced 50 new tracks to the franchise since its September 2019 launch, over 40 of which were based on real-world locations such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, and Paris. A few of these tracks have also made their way to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch as part of the Booster Course Pass DLC, a list which includes Paris Promenade, New York Minute, Sky-High Sundae, and Squeaky Clean Sprint.
Mario Kart Tour is available to download for free on iOS and Android devices.
