New Year's Kite from Mario Kart Tour
Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The New Year's Kite is a High-End glider in Mario Kart Tour. It first appeared in the New Year's Tour and is the signature glider of Mario (Happi) and Lakitu (Party Time). The glider is a variant of the Full Flight themed around New Year's with rose blossoms decorating the edges. Unlike the Full Flight, collecting Coins grants more points when using this glider. A golden variant of this glider, called the Gold New Year's Kite, debuts in the New Year's 2021 Tour. It is possible that the kanji was written by Mario.[1]

  • Mario Kart Tour Twitter: "The delicate strokes of the Japanese kanji for "New Year's Greetings" on the New Year's Kite really stand out against the blue backdrop of the sky. Mario's really been working on his calligraphy!"
