The horrible Waluigi is joining Mario Kart Tour

It’s not Smash, but we’re happy to have him

Waluigi, Luigi, and King Boo are all joining Mario Kart Tour for players to unlock.

Luigi apparently lost his keys, which is why he’s late to join the party. With Luigi’s return, Waluigi crawled out of his tunnel because he couldn’t let the green brother take all the spotlight. King Boo also joined to help players celebrate Halloween.

Along with these characters, two new tracks are going to be added to the game: Waluigi Pinball and Luigi’s Mansion.

To obtain any of these three new characters, players will have to take their chances pulling from the pipe. The pipe is Mario Kart Tour’s version of gacha, which means that the characters you get are completely random. One pull is five rubies, but if you save up 45 rubies you can do 10 pulls at a discounted price.

Waluigi, Luigi, and King Boo, along with the two new courses, will be released when the next tour starts on Oct. 23 at 2 a.m. ET.
