If there is one thing that everyone knows and loves about Nintendo, then it has to be the fact that the company makes some of the best games. Mario Kart Tour is the perfect example of that providing a fun gameplay experience on both console and mobile. If you love playing Mario Kart Tour on your Android-powered smartphone, then you should make sure to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network today. The reason why we are saying that is because a new update that sports the 2.6.1 version number has been made available for download.

Mario Kart Tour 2.6.1 Update

As previously noted, a brand-new update is now rolling out for Mario Kart Tour and it sports the 2.6.1 version number. The update is available to download directly through Nintendo’s official over the air channels. This means that the only requirement to access the update and all the improvements that it brings is to have access to Wi-Fi.

On the other hand, we do need to mention that the update can be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK. This is possible by sideloading the update. However, it’s worth pointing out that manually installing updates can sometimes be tricky.

According to the patch notes, the developers who are in charge of Mario Kart Tour used the new update as an opportunity to take the game’s performances to the next level. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that the update introduces a bundle of bug fixes and software improvements. That’s not all. The update also addresses known issues.
