Nintendo Reveals Rarity Of Character And Kart Unlocks In Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour

In Mario Kart Tour, Lakitu encourages you to fire off a pipe that shoots out random characters and karts every time it is launched. In order to fire off this pipe, you’ll need the special in-game currency (Rubies) which can be unlocked by playing the game or purchasing them with real money.
