New Year's Tour
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The New Year's Tour was the eighth tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on January 1, 2020 and ended on January 14, 2020. The tour celebrated the new year of 2020 and introduced a new variation of Tokyo Blur known as Tokyo Blur 2, while also introducing a new variant of Mario in his happi outfit from Super Mario Odyssey and Toad in a celebratory costume as spotlight characters. Similar to the festive trees in the previous three tours, kadomatsu were added throughout many of the courses; hitting one with an item during a race granted "Happy New Year!" bonus points. The 10 daily log-in bonuses for this tour rewarded the player with 5 rubies each day, for a total of 50 rubies. The trailer features a text different from the tour's name, with the trailer simply reading "2020". The menu's background featured Mount Fuji, the Tokyo Tower, and Kaminarimon as landmarks for this tour.
Signature kart sets
Drivers with a corresponding cup in the tour were bumped one rank up in every course of their cup. Each one had a specific kart and glider pair that were also bumped one rank up, though these sometimes changed between tours. This was the last tour to use set karts and gliders.
Gold cells indicate rewards exclusive to Gold Pass members.
