New Year's Tour
The New Year's Tour was the eighth tour of Mario Kart Tour that began on January 1, 2020 and ended on January 14, 2020. The tour celebrated the new year of 2020 and featured Mario in a happi 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 menu's background featured Mount Fuji, the Tokyo Tower, and Kaminarimon as landmarks for this tour.
Signature kart sets
In every cup, the driver which the cup is themed about is a three or two star item on that course. The driver, and their specific kart and glider are bumped up one tier. This item sometimes changes between tours. This is the last tour where a kart and glider get bumped up.
Gold cells indicate rewards exclusive to Gold Pass members.
