Nintendo have just announced that the multiplayer mode for Mario Kart Tour is finally going live this weekend. The exact date will be March 8, almost half a year after the game's initial launch back in September. What a romantic ride this will be, eh?

As soon as the update goes live, you will be able to race against seven other players in both local and online environments. The mode will be available to all Mario Kart players, but the 200cc players will be locked out to players who are not subscribed to the Gold Pass subscription service.

Mario Kart Tour is currently available on both iOS and Android devices.
