Mario Kart Tour Friends - Can You Play Multiplayer Against Your Friends?

Mario Kart Tour Friends - Can You Play Multiplayer Against Your Friends?

Here's our page on Mario Kart Tour friends, including any online multiplayer aspects.

Mario Kart Tour is out right now, but unfortunately there's no way to directly play online against your friends. But this doesn't mean there's no online functionality at all, so in this Mario Kart Tour friends guide, we'll be looking at whether any multiplayer aspects exist within the game.

Mario Kart Tour Friends

As of right now, you can can't play Mario Kart Tour against friends online. However this doesn't mean there's no online function within Nintendo's new mobile game at all. If you head over to our Mario Kart Tour ranks guide, we'll explain there how you can access your friend code, and how you can battle against your friends in ranked leagues.

As with the main Mario Kart games on the Wii/Switch, you'll be picking a 'CC' difficulty setting to race the bots on. There's 50, 100, or 150CC difficulties, and finally a 200CC difficulty if you're a Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass subscriber.

When Will Multiplayer Launch?

However, it appears Nintendo has plans to add multiplayer to Mario Kart Tour in a future update to the game. If you head to the game's main menu on your phone, you'll see that there's a "Available in a future update version" banner near the bottom of the screen.

Multiplayer is listed as "Inbound" under this banner. This would seem to point to multiplayer arriving in Mario Kart Tour sooner rather than later, and we'll be updating this guide whenever Nintendo announces any additional information surrounding multiplayer.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
