It seems like Mario Kart fans are always obsessed with what characters make it into the game. However, the karts are just as important if not even more. Mario Kart Tour brings in familiar karts from all generations of the franchise. Here’s how you can unlock all the karts and gliders in Mario Kart Tour.
Unlocking Karts and Gliders in Mario Kart Tour
In Mario Kart Tour you can earn stars by getting top finishes in races. These stars are automatically put towards a couple of different unlockables. The important one for unlocking karts and gliders is the gift box. There is a specific number of stars you need to get to unlock the next box, so you know exactly how well you need to do in your races.
Once you get to unlocking a gift box, you’ll receive some in-game currency or unlockables. The latter includes karts and gliders.
You can also purchase karts and gliders in two different ways. The first method for purchasing these racing items in Mario Kart Tour is through the pipe cannon. You can spend five emeralds to get one item or character, or you can spend 45 for 10 items. These emeralds are unlocked in the gift boxes or will be purchasable from the store in a future update.
This method is completely random and won’t always land you a new kart or glider that you’re looking for. Fortunately, there’s a more reliable method for unlocking these items.
You’ll collect coins quickly as you simply play through Mario Kart Tour. You can also earn coins more quickly through coin rush mode. The only catch is that you need to spend emeralds or receive a rare coin rush ticket to do this.
The coins you collect can be used to buy upgrades for characters and karts. More importantly, these coins can also be used to purchase new karts or gliders.
