List of tours in Mario Kart Tour
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The tours in Mario Kart Tour are the main events of the game, each one consisting of a number of cups and lasting for two weeks. To progress through a tour, players collect Grand Stars by achieving points in the cups. Interspersed between the cups are tour gifts and free pipe launches that reward the player with various items. For the duration of a tour, the player can complete two sets of challenges (three if the player has a Gold Pass) to earn extra Grand Stars, although the second set is not available until the second week. Each tour introduces new content to the game, such as new drivers, gliders, karts, and courses.
The following table lists the number of Grand Stars required to unlock each cup and tour gift. Up until the Mario Bros. Tour, the next cup would not be unlocked until the latest cup had been cleared, regardless if the player had the required amount of Grand Stars, although tour gifts are available immediately after meeting the required amount. From the Baby Rosalina Tour onward, tour gifts are still unlockable, although all cups no longer require Grand Stars to unlock, meaning they can be played in any order.
In all tours, there is a time availability system for the later cups. Up until the 2019 Halloween Tour, by default, the ninth and tenth cups of each tour were not available until the second day, the eleventh and twelfth not until the fourth day, the thirteenth and fourteenth not until the sixth day, and the fifteenth and sixteenth not until the second week; although players could unlock them faster by using quick tickets. From the Paris Tour onward, the availability time was changed to one cup being unlocked every successive day (the ninth cup on the second day, the tenth on the third, and so on. From the Baby Rosalina Tour onward, the eighth cup is the first unlockable cup instead due to the reduced number of cups.
Also introduced in the Baby Rosalina Tour, the player can unlock at least two free pipe launches from the first week's pipe with Grand Stars. From the Wild West Tour onward, the second half of the free pipe launches are from the second week's pipe (except in the New Year's 2021 Tour, where only the last two were from the second week's pipe).
Tracks in gray debuted during the respective tour. "N" indicates a normal course, "R" a reversed course, "T" a trick course, and "R/T" a reversed trick course. Course variations in blue were newly added to the game, variations in green were used in previous tours, and variations in red text have not yet made a reappearance. Cup icons with darkened cells indicate newly added cups.
