'Mario Kart Tour' preparing second multiplayer test

'Mario Kart Tour' could add two types of multiplayer race -- local and online.

A second round of multiplayer testing is on course for "Mario Kart Tour," no subscription required.

Nintedo's mobile racing game "Mario Kart Tour" is getting closer to adding its multiplayer mode.

A first multiplayer test had been held over a week in December 2019, but was limited to those who had bought a $4.99 USD Gold Pass for the month.

While that beta test let up to eight drivers compete online over the course of a three-race cup, this second test is expected to trial "Mario Kart Tour"'s ability to connect racers in close proximity.

Details concerning format and dates are yet to be announced, Nintendo announced via social media.
