Mario Kart Tour’s latest update improves multiplayer and teases future content

The update paves the way for new in-game content

Nintendo has released the latest update for popular racing game, Mario Kart Tour. Version 2.1.0 is bringing a whole trunk-load of content to the Mushroom Kingdom, with new multiplayer improvements, expert challenges, and the promise of future Coins Aplenty events on the cards.
