New Year's 2021 Tour
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The New Year's 2021 Tour was the thirty-fourth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on December 30, 2020 and ended on January 12, 2021. Hence the name, the tour celebrated the new year of 2021. A new remix variation of SNES Rainbow Road, called RMX Rainbow Road 2, was introduced in this tour, while the Lakitu referee in his New Year's outfit worn since the 2020 Winter Tour became a playable High-End driver in the game, alongside Pauline (Party Time) and Toad (Party Time) as the spotlight drivers for the first week. Additionally, every alternate variant of Mario (only excluding Mario (Musician) and Mario (Santa)) returned as the spotlight drivers for the second week. This tour's Coin Rush course was Vanilla Lake 1, which was reused from the Ice Tour. The menu's background featured the four bouncy mushrooms from RMX Rainbow Road 2 as the landmark for this tour.
The New Year's 2021 Tour reused the Mario Cup, Wendy Cup, and Pauline Cup's bonus challenges from the Holiday Tour for this tour's King Boo Cup, Diddy Kong Cup, and Wario Cup (although the first challenge adjusted the 1-star and 2-star requirements from 5 and 10 to 7 and 12, and the second challenge adjusted the 1-star and 3-star requirements from 10 and 16 to 8 and 17), and the Ice Mario Cup's bonus challenge from the Hammer Bro Tour for this tour's Toadette Cup.
