It's time to take a nostalgic drive down memory lane. The Mario Kart Tour, our beloved mobile racing adventure, will no longer add new courses. This news brings a mix of emotions, inviting us to look back on the incredible journey we've shared since its launch in 2019.

Do you remember the excitement of downloading Mario Kart Tour for the first time on your iOS or Android device? The game was a sensation, surpassing all expectations and racing ahead of other smartphone games in terms of downloads. From the bustling streets of New York to the colorful vistas of various countries, every update brought us together in a global celebration of speed and fun. As we gear up for a future where the Tour will replay our favorite racing courses and characters, it's time to cherish those memories. Remember how we eagerly awaited each update, curious about the new drivers, karts, and parts that would add to our racing experience? Those were the days of pure, unadulterated joy and competition.

Let's take a moment to reflect on how Mario Kart Tour has evolved over the years. The shift from a random item gacha system to a direct-selling item shop in 2022 was a significant change, adapting to the evolving landscape of the gaming industry. It was a testament to Nintendo's commitment to keeping the game fair and enjoyable for everyone. Despite the shift in focus towards the Switch, Nintendo has nurtured a special place in our hearts with Mario Kart Tour. While other smartphone ventures came and went, our game remained a steady favorite.

As we brace for a future without new racing courses, let's not view it as the end but as a celebration of the joyous times we've had. Let's revisit our favorite tracks, relive those thrilling races, and keep the essence of Mario Kart Tour alive in our hearts.

Here's to countless hours of fun, laughter, and friendly competition. Mario Kart Tour, you've been on a wonderful journey, and your legacy will race on in our memories.
