Holiday Tour (2021)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Holiday Tour was the fifty-eighth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on December 1, 2021, and ended on December 15, 2021. It was the eighth tour to have the same title as a previous tour. Being themed around the holidays, it featured the return and the debut of various Christmas- and Santa-themed items, while also marking the return of Merry Mountain since its last appearance in the Cat Tour. Additionally, this tour marked the debut of SNES Vanilla Lake 2 as the tour’s signature course, making this tour the first to introduce a new classic course since the Summer Tour eleven tours prior. This tour also appropriately marked the debut of the R/T variant of Merry Mountain, making this the first tour since the Baby Rosalina Tour 45 tours prior to feature both a new course and new R/T variants of other courses. This was the second tour overall to not introduce any new drivers, with the first one being the Bowser vs. DK Tour. It was also the sixth tour to feature festive trees scattered across courses. The Coin Box Pipe from the Mario vs. Luigi Tour returned in this tour, now including different drivers like Kamek and King Bob-omb (Gold).
The Holiday Celebration event began on this tour, which featured new unique challenges similar to previous events like the Summertime Celebration from the Summer Tour and the Autumn Celebration from the Autumn Tour, offering rewards such as rubies and White Yoshi, as well as better rewards from the Tour Multiplayer Challenges. The event, just like the previously mentioned events, will last for three tours, ending on the New Year's 2022 Tour.
For the duration of only this tour, the title screen image was changed to represent Team Toad's victory against Team Toadette during the Toad vs. Toadette Tour.
This tour's Coin Rush course is Merry Mountain, which was reused from the Cat Tour. The menu's background features the present tower from Merry Mountain as the landmark for this tour, which was reused from the 2020 Winter Tour.
