The Anniversary Tour is the seventy-ninth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on September 21, 2022 and ends on October 4, 2022. This tour celebrates three years since the release of Mario Kart Tour on September 25, 2019, but unlike the 1st and 2nd Anniversary Tours, this tour's name does not contain a number representing the anniversary it is celebrating.
This tour marks the end of the two-tour event celebrating the third anniversary of Mario Kart Tour that started in the previous tour. This tour features an upgraded Token Shop that includes items like Metal Mario, Pink Gold Peach, the Wild Wing, and three golden pipes. This tour also introduces the second set of two 3rd Anniversary Challenges cards in addition to continuing the 3 Year Anniv. Log-In Bonus and the 3rd Anniversary Challenges 1 card from the previous tour.
Like the 2nd Anniversary Tour and Metropolitan Tour, only city courses appeared in the tour. This tour also introduces new routes for both Sydney Sprint and Berlin Byways, named Sydney Sprint 3 and Berlin Byways 3, the former of which was previously seen in the course's appearance in the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It also introduces the R/T variants of both Amsterdam Drift 2 and Singapore Speedway 2, which debuted in the Metropolitan Tour and Ocean Tour, respectively. With the introduction of these courses, this is the first tour since the Samurai Tour thirteen tours prior to introduce new R/T variants, the first tour in the game to introduce the R/T variants of multiple city courses, and the first tour since the Ice Tour seventy tours prior to introduce both multiple new courses and multiple R/T variants simultaneously.
Despite the new courses not being related to London or Britain, and the tour not including returning London Loop tracks, the new vehicles are a variant of the Double-Decker and a kart based on a Hackney carriage, in addition to a new variant of Mario, where he is in his King's Crown and King's Outfit from Super Mario Odyssey.
This is the last tour to feature the regular week pipes which can be fired with rubies and contain spotlight items, as they will be removed after this tour in favor of a Spotlight Shop that will be implemented in the following tour. In addition to the removal of ruby pipes, this will be the last tour where the spotlight items from the first and second week will be raised to a higher shelf on the second and third course of every cup, respectively, restricting shelf boosts after this tour to driver cups and the first course in a cup for Mii Racing Suits and commemorative items.
This tour's Coin Rush course is Tokyo Blur. The menu's background features the Sydney Harbour Bridge as the landmark for this tour, which was reused from the April–May 2021 and September 2021 Sydney Tours.
Despite the tenth set of Expert Challenges ending in the last tour, the eleventh set was not made available at the start of this tour and will instead be made available at the start of the next tour.
Signature kart sets
Drivers with a corresponding cup are bumped one rank up in every course of their cup.
Players' most recently used kart and glider are chosen, and favorite and favored ones have extra priority. Opponents are arranged randomly. On day 1 of this tour, players finish a race in Los Angeles Laps 3T in the Mii Cup using Birdo (Black) for a free pipe launch. Starting from day 2, players have to finish a race in the earliest incomplete course that is not in any of the ranked cups using the driver shown on the course's thumbnail every day to obtain the corresponding reward in the table below. Once all of the courses are completed, the courses are selected at random.
