Halloween Tour (2020)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Halloween Tour was the twenty-ninth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on October 21, 2020 and ended on November 3, 2020. It was the first tour to have the same title as a previous tour, while also being the first tour to introduce a course from Mario Kart Wii, namely Maple Treeway, which acted as the signature course of the tour. This Halloween Tour introduced three new driver variants: Mario and Peach in Halloween costumes, the former of which originates from a Halloween-themed HOME Menu theme for the Nintendo 3DS and previously appeared in Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, and a gold variant of King Boo. For the duration of the tour, the Lakitu referee also wore a Halloween costume, and in a similar fashion to the festive trees and kadomatsu, Jack-o'-lanterns were scattered throughout the courses in the tour and granted "Trick or treat!" bonus points when hit. The menu's background featured the large tree from Maple Treeway as the landmark for this tour.
Starting with this tour, the Tier Shop was introduced (which was added in version 2.6.0 but not implemented prior to this tour), where more items are available depending on the player's tier and change every week.
The 2020 Halloween Tour reused the Daisy Cup's bonus challenge from the Tokyo Tour for this tour’s Donkey Kong Cup, the Baby Luigi Cup and King Boo Cup's bonus challenges from the 2019 Halloween Tour for this tour’s Baby Rosalina Cup and Pauline Cup, and the Baby Mario Cup's bonus challenge from the Ice Tour for this tour’s Larry Cup.

The limited-time event where event tokens appeared began on October 25, 2020 and lasted until November 3, 2020. Event tokens could be earned by collecting them in courses, as well as driving into Jack-o'-lanterns or hitting them with items.
This tour was the first tour to introduce the Tier Shop after the update to version 2.6.0 of the game. The shop featured a variety of set and randomized items available for purchase. The item slots in the shop are unlocked based on the highest tier of players.
