Mario Kart Tour beta registrations open for Android users in US

Mario Kart Tour beta registrations open for Android users in US
Nintendo plans to bring yet another game to Android and iOS device this summer – Mario Kart Tour. Officially revealed two months ago, the next Mario game for mobile won't be released until at least June.

However, Nintendo fans will have a chance to take a peek at what's to come thanks to the closed beta program the Japanese company has just announced. Assuming you're living in the United States or Japan, you can now register for the Mario Kart Tour closed beta on the game's dedicated page.

Unfortunately, it's only Android users that are allowed to register for the closed beta, and there's little chance the iPhone owners will be given the chance to test Mario Kart Tour before the official release.

Obviously, the number of Android users who may participate in the closed beta is limited. According to Nintendo, if the number of applications exceeds the number of possible participants, the company will randomly select the participants.

Android users can register for the closed beta between April 23 and May 7, while the beta test is scheduled for May 22-June 4, but these dates can be changed prior notice.
