Mario Kart Tour Adds Auto Mode

Nintendo have updated Mario Kart Tour to Ver. 2.6.0 adding an Auto Mode, Profile Screens, Greeting Coins, Tier Shop, and more…

You can now sit back and watch the drivers race with the game’s new Auto Mode. You can enable this mode by tapping Auto at the start of a race. Grand Stars and coins collected by your driver will also count toward your total after the race. Players can tap the whistle button to change driver formations, pause a race, take screenshots, and move their device to adjust the camera if the gyro button is enabled.

Other additions include Profile Screens which display the favourite drivers and records of you and your friends. Greetings Coins have been added allowing you to send them to your friends once per day. You can now share a Room Code via Create Room when selecting its race setting. The Tier Shop has also been added allowing you to get more items with coins, the higher you tier in This Week’s Ranking.
