The Mario Kart Tour beta has begun in Japan, revealing the first details of the upcoming next big mobile game from Nintendo. The game is obviously going to be geared for online multiplayer, but it seems like Mario Kart Tour doesn’t feature a proper multiplayer experience, at least in the beta.

Several reports have confirmed that, despite there being matchmaking, players aren’t actually racing against other players, but against the recordings of previously completed races, in the vein of the Toad Rally Multiplayer in Super Mario Run.

These reports are confirmed by the fact that it’s possible to pause the race, which wouldn’t be normally possible in an online multiplayer game.

While this is definitely disappointing, we must not forget that Mario Kart Tour is still in development, so things may change in the future.

Mario Kart Tour launches later this year on iOS and Android in all regions. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
