Mario Kart’s Holiday Tour began on December 1st and brings a ho-ho-host of amazing features to unlock, race, and purchase. The tour is split into three parts, with the first part giving us the chance to unlock Santa Bowser and Santa Mario! The second part is on its way very soon and has been announced by Nintendo as being the Penguin Tour. Find out what we know so far!
The Mario Kart Penguin Tour 2021
This new tour, the second part of the Holiday Tour, begins on December 14th. As you may be able to tell from the tour name, there will be plenty of penguin-themed drivers and karts to get, as well as other icy and wintery drivers, karts, and gliders.
Players can get Penguin Luigi, Penguin Mario, Penguin Toad, and the brand new Penguin Toadette. We can also spot a penguin-themed kart in the recently released trailer. There will be an upgraded Token Shop where you can spend your tokens on exclusive items.
In the trailer, we can see Penguin Luigi is riding a brand new kart—a silver snow skimmer-type kart. Mario is using another smart-looking new kart in the trailer scene following, and Princess Peach can be seen using a new cloud glider alongside Wario in a new colorful sleigh kart. Race tracks include Vanilla Lake, and the return of Vancouver Velocity 2!
One of the exclusive gliders coming with this update will be the 2022 new year glider to add to your collection of year gliders!
Check out the trailer below to see what penguin-themed items you can spot.
