Nintendo has officially announced that the multiplayer mode for Mario Kart Tour will be added on iOS on March 8, 2020.
The multiplayer mode has been in beta for a while now, and players who are subscribed with the Gold Pass have already experienced it. But that will change once this feature releases later this week as it will be available to anyone except for Gold Races.
