The Mario Kart mobile game now has multiplayer – but not for long

Nintendo's Mario Kart Tour app for smartphones was largely a big hit for the company last year.

It's free-to-play and has seen several expansions of content to keep it interesting. Sure, it has microtransactions galore, but that feels like a prerequisite of pretty much any mobile game these days. Especially those that go down the free-to-play model.

However, the most glaring omission and complaints from the majority of players stemmed from the games complete lack of multiplayer.

Slowly but surely though, fans of the game are seeing this core component integrated back into the game.

At the time of writing the game is actually going through it's second phase of testing for the mode.

The first test was a pretty resounding success, except for the fact it was gated to only those who purchased the games $5 Gold Pass subscription.

This time around, however, anyone can play. Even those who might have only just downloaded the game today.

It certainly makes for a more enjoyable game too when you're not restricted to AI bots but instead random competitors or your friends.

Although, we can't guarantee it will improve your relationship if they blue shell you with one corner to go before the finish line.

The only thing you need to do is make sure you have unlocked at least one cup within the game.

After completing this relatively simple task, you then have to click the menu button to switch to the games new multiplayer mode.

Here's the only drawback, this is only a beta test and as such ends pretty soon.

This week, in fact, on January 28th at midnight ET. For us in the UK, we get a slightly longer playtime with the beta ending on Wednesday, January 29th at 5am GMT.

So there is still plenty of time to get stuck in if you want to see what all the fuss is about.
