Can you believe Mario Kart Tour is already on its 9th tour? The game only launched back in September, and since then it's become increasingly tricky to keep on top of the amount of new content Nintendo is pumping out.
The Ice Tour is set to begin today at 10pm PT, and it'll add a handful of new racers – two of which have already been teased in a tweet from last week. You can clearly see in the tweet below that one of the racers is either Mario or Luigi in the cute penguin costume from New Super Mario Bros. Wii and later New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
The second racer appears to be another version of Peach, which is fine by me. The Ice Tour will presumably offer the usual gacha rewards for standard players and more premium stuff for Gold Pass subscribers. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, though.
2020 is off to a blazing start with the New Year's Tour, but it's still cold out there... Keep those snow tires spinning and fire up your defrosters for the Ice Tour, starting Jan. 14, 10 PM PT! Here's a peek at new drivers who are ready for the winter wonderland! #MarioKartTour pic.twitter.com/uuqJKnh4zQ

The New Year's Tour will soon come to an end, so make sure to get all the rewards you can before the Ice Tour kicks off later today. Of course, there's a chance that the New Year's Tour rewards will appear again at a later date.
