If you have been a fan of Mario Franchise, then you must be anxiously waiting for the release of Mario Kart Tour on mobile devices. Today is the good news for you, finally, Nintendo has confirmed that applications for the beta are open from now until May 7 on the game’s official website. The beta will be exclusive to Android devices for the time being. Sorry iPhone users, Mario Kart is not available to download as a beta for Apple devices. Android Users can Sign up and get themselves a chance to download Mario Kart Tour Beta for Android.
This will be an open beta test copy and will be provided to a limited amount of players. The reason companies release closed beta copies for download is that a small number of players run and test the game and then report back all the bugs back to the company. This way the company gets valuable real-time feedback from players and this helps it to improve the game in all aspects.
Despite being announced in early 2018, we’ve yet to hear a single solid detail about Mario Kart’s first mobile entry. The game was expected to be released somewhere between April 2019 to March 2019. However, in early 2019, the company decided to push the release to summer 2019, yet again. Anyhow, the company reiterated that it will release the game in its 2019 fiscal year.
“In the mobile business, we have plans to release Dr. Mario World and Mario Kart Tour. In addition, we will strive to expand the business by ensuring that more consumers can continue to enjoy the applications we’ve released already.”
Now, without any further ado, let’s jump straight to the guide on How to Sign up for Mario Kart Tour Beta for Android.
How to Sign up for Mario Kart Tour Beta for Android
Before we start with the steps, bear two things in mind. 1) This beta is only for Android Users. 2) The beta will only be available in the US and Japan.
- Head to the game’s official website here.
- On the website press the big “See details here” button.
- Now, scroll all the way down and confirm the Checkboxes along the way. At the end hit the “Apply with Nintendo Account”
One important thing, which might ignore, is that you must use the email address for Nintendo Account and Google Play account. Don’t take it for granted, Nintendo says you won’t be able to download Mario Kart Tour beta if your email ids on Nintendo Account and Google Play account are not same. So, if your Nintendo account has a different email id from your Google Play account then login to your Nintendo Account and change the email id to the one you are using on Google Play Store.
