A new event has begun in Mario Kart Tour. This week marks the start of the Pirate Tour, and it introduces another classic course to the game, as well as a new kart and two new playable racers.
The aforementioned course is Airship Fortress from Mario Kart DS. This track has players racing around the exterior and interior of one of Bowser’s flying airships, with Rocky Wrenches, Bullet Bills, and other hazards littering the path.
It’s time for the Pirate Tour! The DS Airship Fortress course makes its debut in Mario Kart Tour. It’s a long way down from this floating fortress, so make sure you stay on course!

The Pirate Tour also introduces two new racers to the game’s ever-expanding roster. First is Pirate Bowser Jr., who is outfitted with a pirate hat, eye patch, and cutlass. Pirate Bowser Jr. is currently spotlighted alongside the new Pirate Sushi Racer kart, but the Pirate Tour will also add King Bob-omb from Super Mario 64 as a playable racer.
