Joining Fire Emblem: Heroes, Mario Kart Tour is prepping for a swashbuckling adventure this summer! Teased last week on the official Mario Kart Tour Twitter account, the next two-week racing tour is all about pirates. From Tuesday, August 11th, at 11 p.m. PT to Tuesday, August 25th, at 10:59 p.m. PT, a curated collection of courses best representing the pirate theme will be live. 


We’ll also see at least one character sporting a pirate captain’s outfit, starring in their own gacha Warp Pipe. Unfortunately, the Mario Kart Tour Twitter account only got the character’s hat and partial eye-patch.
