Winter Tour (2020)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Winter Tour was the thirty-second tour of Mario Kart Tour, which began on December 2, 2020 and ended on December 15, 2020. It was the second tour to share its name with a previous tour, and introduced a new course themed after the North Pole and Santa's workshop, aptly named Merry Mountain. A variant of Bowser in Christmas attire was introduced, while Mario (Santa) and Yoshi (Reindeer) reappeared as the second week's spotlights. For the duration of the tour, the Lakitu referee also wore a Christmas-themed costume, and the festive trees from the 2019 Winter Tour, the London Tour, and the Holiday Tour returned. A new bonus challenge called "Take them out quick!" was also introduced, where the player is tasked with taking out all of their Mega opponent's balloons before the time runs out. This tour's Coin Rush course was DK Pass, which was reused from 2019's Winter Tour. The menu's background featured the present tower of Merry Mountain as the landmark for this tour.
The 2020 Winter Tour reused the Peachette Cup's bonus challenge from the 2019 Winter Tour for this tour's Morton Cup, the Wario Cup and Iggy Cup's bonus challenges from the New Year's Tour for this tour's Rosalina Cup and Baby Luigi Cup (although the three-star requirement for the former challenge was increased from 20 to 22), and the Yoshi Cup's bonus challenge from the Yoshi Tour for this tour's Dry Bowser Cup (although the two-star requirement was increased from 9 to 10 and the three-star requirement was increased from 13 to 15).

The limited-time event where event tokens appeared began on December 2, 2020 and lasted until December 15, 2020, starting from the first week of the tour like the Token Shop in the 1st Anniversary Tour and Mario vs. Luigi Tour. Event tokens could be earned by collecting them in courses and hitting festive trees in courses.
