Nintendo is now accepting applications for the closed beta test of Mario Kart Tour on Android devices ahead of its release this Summer.
Android owners can sign up for the Mario Kart Tour closed beta by clicking here between April 23 and May 7 at 7:59pm PT/10:59pm ET. Nintendo does warn, however, that the number of participants will be limited and the lucky few may be chosen randomly if too many people sign up.
The closed beta is currently scheduled to run in Japan and the U.S. from May 22, 2019 through June 4, 2019 and Nintendo cautions these dates may change without any warning.
As of this writing, there is no word on if or when an iOS closed beta may happen, but fans can rest easy knowing the full game will arrive those devices.
Mario Kart Tour was originally announced in 2018 and was then delayed into Summer 2019 “in order to improve quality of the application and expand the content offerings after launch.”
Mario Kart Tour is part of Nintendo’s newly focused mobile strategy that has seen such titles released as Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Fire Emblem Heroes and Super Mario Run.
