Mario Kart Tour’s upcoming two-week Halloween event has been fully detailed, with six new drivers, three new courses, Time Trials, and more headed to the game.

After a handful of teases about new characters and tracks, including Luigi, King Boo, and Waluigi, Nintendo has uploaded a video explaining everything Mario Kart Tour players can expect from this week’s “Halloween Tour.”



Luigi, of course, will be making his debut as a playable driver with the Special Skill Fire Flower, but so will Baby Luigi, Waluigi, and King Boo.

The video mentions these four are not tour-exclusive, so they’ll always be available as gacha pulls from the in-game pipe.

The Halloween Tour’s Spotlight drivers, though, have been revealed as Rosalina (Halloween) and King Boo (Luigi’s Mansion); the former’s Special Skill will be Dash Ring while the latter’s will be the Bob-omb Cannon.

Tour-specific, Halloween-themed karts and gliders (at least two of each) will also be available during the Halloween Tour.

As for new courses, Luigi’s Mansion, Ghost Valley (SNES), and Waluigi Pinball will launch during the event.

Finally, Time Trials will begin making appearances during tour bonus challenges, with Grand Stars rewarded for beating specific times.

Those with the paid Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass subscription will be able to get their hands on a handful of rare karts, plus Peachette for 250 Grand Stars.

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.
