Waluigi And More Join Mario Kart Tour For Halloween
It's Luigi versus Waluigi in who's the best sidekick.
With Halloween officially on the horizon, Nintendo has confirmed that Luigi, King Boo, Waluigi, and some classic Mario Kart maps will get added to Mario Kart Tour at the start of the mobile racer's next content drop.
Mario Kart Tour's Halloween event will run for two weeks, kicking off on Tuesday, October 22 at 11 PM PT. All three racers will have a unique skill, with Waluigi having an "offense-oriented special skill" and King Boo using a "special skill that's surely fit for a king." Nintendo did not specify Luigi's special skill, but it seems he is exceptionally skilled at losing his keys.
Racers aren't the only piece of new content. Alongside Luigi, King Boo, and Waluigi, Nintendo has also resurrected the Luigi's Mansion course from Mario Kart DS to add to Mario Kart Tour. Additionally, the Waluigi Pinball course will also be playable once the game's Halloween event goes live.
In the dead of night, the roar of engines breaks the eerie silence...and the race is on! In the next tour, the Luigi's Mansion course from the Mario Kart DS game rises from its grave! Haunted houses aren't so scary when you race right through them! #MarioKartTour pic.twitter.com/VgyExVsGMD— Mario Kart Tour (@mariokarttourEN) October 20, 2019
Mario Kart Tour's most recent event took players to Tokyo, a stark contrast from the first event's New York City location. Over in Tokyo, Nintendo introduced additional courses and characters to the mobile racer.
The addition of Luigi and King Boo to Mario Kart Tour comes about a week before the release of Luigi's Mansion 3, which launches on October 31 for Nintendo Switch. Alongside Mario Kart Tour, Luigi appeared in the battle royale-inspired spin-off Tetris 99.
