Keeping with a food theme, Mario Kart Tour has swapped bananas for French desserts and tea time in the new Cooking Tour


The Italian plumber is swapping his overalls for a chef’s coat, ready to sharpen his knives and show off family recipes. Joining Chef Mario is a slew of food themed vehicles and kart accessories, making victories even sweeter. While Chef Mario may be in the spotlight now, thanks to the trailer we know that Sous Chef Shy Guy looks to be waiting for the soufflé to rise on for the competition’s second half. With their release, we’ll see even more food-karts available to win and/or purchase. That said, I’d love a cannoli or pizzelle themed go-kart. Please, Nintendo?

The Cooking Tour will be simmering from Tuesday, June 2nd, at 11 p.m. PT until Tuesday, June 16th, at 10:59 p.m. PT. After that, it’s time to wash the dishes and we’ll be onto the next themed adventure in Mario Kart Tour.
