Mario Kart Tour’s latest tour, named the Valentine’s Tour even though it doesn’t technically extend to Valentine’s Day (it ends on Feb. 12), kicked off today. Players will be able to earn as many stars as they can while completing brand new single-player cups. By earning stars, players can unlock exclusive rewards.

Those who haven’t purchase a Gold Pass will be able to unlock a Piranha Plant Parafoil, a Birthday Girl kart, and a Baby Peach driver. However, players that have a Gold Pass will be able to get all of these, as well as an extra racer, kart, and glider. The racer, kart, and glider are designed as Wendy, one of the Koopalings, a Macharon for the kart, and a Strawberry Crepe glider.

Also, players will be able to claim five free rubies if they log into the app before Feb. 5. Once claimed, they will be sent to the gift box which is located on the bottom left-hand side of the screen in the menu. Rubies can be put towards pipes, which are gacha openings in which the player can win items of varying rarities.

Mario Kart Tour is available to download now on the App Store and Google Play. Although it is free to play, it allows for in-game purchases – including more rubies and pipes.
