Mario Day Comes To Mario Kart Tour, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

You can burn rubber in Mario Kart Tour and decorate your camp with some Mario-themed goods to celebrate March 10.


Nintendo has announced special events coming to its mobile games, Mario Kart Tour and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, as part of its Mario Day celebrations. Mario Day itself falls on March 10 (because "MAR10," get it?) but some of the events start earlier and run well into the rest of the month.

In Mario Kart Tour, a special Mario Tour will run from March 9 to March 23. The tour will add new drivers, karts, and gliders, and include a Tokyo Blur 4 course. A teaser image for the tour shows Mario donning various fashions, including his 16-bit look from the original Mario Kart.

Meanwhile, in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, an anniversary crossover event is running through March 23. The event adds special poses and fave photos, and brings back some favorite past events. The game is also offering some bonuses for finishing My Nintendo missions, and logging into the game during the event will grant you a Mario hat cushion.

This comes alongside the new Mario items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the launch of the Mario-themed red and blue Switch. And Nintendo is offering some sales on Switch games at various retailers, and merchandise from the Nintendo NY store. You can check out all the Mario Day deals for more details.
