Mario Kart Tour released last month for Android and iOS devices, but those used to playing with friends were out of luck as the current version of the game lacks its iconic multiplayer mode. Now, Nintendo has just announced via Twitter that it plans on running a real-time multiplayer mode beta test for the game this December.

Nintendo Gold Pass holders can rejoice, as they will be the only ones to receive access to the beta. Gold Pass status will set you back $4.99 USD per month and currently gives members access to upgrades like 200cc racing and exclusive challenges. Those interested in being the first to test the feature will have to upgrade to Gold Pass – there’s still time, as the beta isn’t slated to release until sometime next month.


Nintendo has yet to announce whether the multiplayer mode will see a wider release to all players in the future.

In other Nintendo news, Super Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto was recently honored Japan’s Person of Cultural Merit award, marking the first time someone from the video game industry has received the honor.
