Mario Day is coming to Mario Kart Tour, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Nintendo has announced upcoming special events to its mobile games, Mario Kart Tour and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, as part of its Mario Day celebrations. Mario Day itself falls on March 10 (because “MAR10”, get it?), but some of the events start earlier and run well into the rest of the month.

In Mario Kart Tour, a special Mario Tour will run from March 9 to March 23. The track will add new drivers, karts, and gliders, and will include a Tokyo Blur 4 course. A teaser image for the tour shows Mario wearing various clothes, including his 16-bit look from the original Mario Kart.

Meanwhile, in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, an anniversary crossover event is running until March 23. The event adds special poses and favorite photos, and brings back some favorite past events. The game also offers bonuses for completing My Nintendo missions, and logging into the game during the event will grant you a Mario hat pad.


This comes along with the new Mario items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the launch of the Mario-themed red and blue Switch. And Nintendo is offering sales on Switch games at various retailers, and merchandise from the Nintendo NY Store. You can check out all the Mario Day deals for more details.
