Nintendo’s mobile title Mario Kart Tour will receive another content update shortly. Before launch, it was revealed as a new (but old) track – Cheep-Cheep Island from the Game Boy Advance generation.
Yes, it’s another course from the 2001 title, Mario Kart: Super Circuit. This track originally appeared in the Lightning Cup and is known for its sunset skies … and cheep-cheep. It will appear as part of the Summer Tour:

This course joins a number of other tracks from the same generation of handhelds – including Bowser’s Castle 1 and 2 and Sunset Wilds. In total, there are nearly 40 retro-themed tracks that can now be seen in Mario Kart Tour on mobile.
As of March this year, the mobile Mario Kart topped 200 million downloads and $ 200 million in player spend. Have you tried this game yet? Would you be interested in visiting Cheep-Cheep Island again at the start of the summer tour? Tell us below.
