Everybody knows Mario Kart Tour, and now, we'll be able to try out the legendary Mario Kart Tour right on our mobile - the Android device, to be more specific.

Unfortunately, this mobile version is still in closed beta with pretty limited access, only available on a few regions and platforms - for the moment, anyway.

This article will sum up everything you need to know about Mario Kart Tour Beta

So the bad news is, if you haven’t signed up for the beta, then you have no chance with it already! However, even if you have, it doesn’t mean that you will get your full access. It all depends on your hardware setup. Here are some pieces of official information that we have until now, sure you will need it:

The dates and access

First, the beta of Mario Kart Tour will open for two weeks only, from the 22nd of May to the 4th of June.

Then, to get the full access to the Mario Kart Tour beta, you will have to satisfy all of the following criteria:

  • You must have pre-registered prior to the 7th of May
  • You must be in the USA or Japan during the entire period
  • You must own an Android phone

The game is scheduled to come out this summer

If you fail to meet any of those, then the key to the Mario Kart Tour beta is already slipping through your fingers, unfortunately.  

How to get the beta on your Android device

In case that you are one of the lucky people who just signed up for the beta access on time, live in Japan or the USA and have a Samsung phone in your pocket, then, here is an easy instruction for you to get the full access.

Expect to have something like the Mario Kart 8 on your phone? Let’s wait to see.

If you have done everything right, you might get an email from Nintendo by now. It will allow you to download the Mario Kart Tour beta from Google Play. Then, you use the same Nintendo account you used in registration to get in the game.

Keep in mind that, to be able to run the game, your Android device must meet the following requirements:

  • It must run on Android 4.4 or a later version
  • It has 1.5 Gigabytes of RAM or higher
  • It must be a mobile device. That means tablets and Android Q don't count.

If you tick all those boxes, you are ready to go. Let’s rock the game!

Do iOS device owners have any chance with the beta access?

Unfortunately, until now, there is no official announcement from Nintendo about this.

Maybe they will give those iOS devices a taste on Mario Kart Tour beta access. However, with the game set to launch "this summer", it's unlikely that the developer will have enough time to run another beta for iOS. Nothing stays certain by now, all we can do is to keep waiting and cross our fingers. Maybe a miracle will happen!

Still, don't count on it too much

Is there anything else we need to know about Mario Kart Tour beta?

Here is something you should keep in mind about the game:

  • Mario Kart Tour beta version doesn’t allow players to share pictures or videos!
  • Your save and progress from the beta cannot be transferred to the final game.
  • You will not be able to purchase any item in the beta
  • The abilities of the characters, kart performance, or other features might receive some tweaks, so the final product might be different.
