King Boo and Waluigi, along with the latter’s iconic “Waluigi Pinball” stage, will be headed to Mario Kart Tour alongside Luigi during the game’s “Halloween Tour” event, kicking off this week.

Both new drivers were announced via Twitter, with King Boo teased to be packing a “special skill that’s surely fit for a king!”



Waluigi, meanwhile, is said to have a “defense-oriented special skill,” although what this could be isn’t certain.



Waluigi Pinball, a course from Mario Kart DS for the Nintendo DS, is the latest course announced for the game.



Waluigi Pinball returned as a retro track in Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS, a game that featured no playable Waluigi; its inclusion in Mario Kart Tour marks the first time an HD Waluigi can be played on an HD version of the track.

Mario Kart Tour’s Halloween Tour event will take place from October 22nd, 2019 at 11 p.m. PST to November 5th, 2019 at 10:59 p.m. PST.
