After its successful New Year’s 2022 Tour, mobile game Mario Kart Tour launched a new event on Jan 12: the Singapore Tour.

Singapore is the first of nine cities that will receive courses in Mario Kart Tour, with our course being titled The Singapore Speedway

The background of the map features many iconic landmarks like Marina Bay Sands, Gardens By The Bay, the Esplanade, Singapore Flyer, and Merlion. 

In addition, a new kart and driver have been added to the game. Vacation Luigi and the Roaring Racer (designed to look like the Merlion) can be won by performing well during games, or by using the in-game ruby currency to shoot off the Singapore Pipe – the game’s version of a loot box.

The course can also be played as Singapore Speedway R (which stands for reverse), Singapore Speedway T (where there will be ramps), and Singapore Speedway R/T (reverse and with ramps).

The trailer for the tour was released on Twitter on Jan 7, and the course will be available until Jan 25.
