Wii Rainbow Road is soon-to-be added to Mario Kart Tour, during the upcoming Space Tour 2!

Published on 2023-01-07 at 05:44:49
Hello! ;)

Mario Kart Tour will be getting a new track which some may be excited to see in the upcoming Space Tour 2!:o

What is it? Wii Rainbow Road!:D

For those unfamiliar with this rendition of the colourful space trip, here's a screenshot of the original track, before its epic-looking remake!:)

And now, here's a screenshot of its updated soon-to-be recreation in the aformentioned MKT:

Of course, the trailer, putting it better than I do:

By the way, this is not all for the Space Tour 2! Toad and Toadette (Satellaview) will be appearing, and 3DS Rainbow Road will return to the track selection!super

This makes you wonder... will Wii Rainbow Road show up in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass DLC? Only time will tell...

Besides that, the Space Tour 2 begins on the 11th of January (Or, rather, the coming Wednesday)! Don't get tired waiting!lol

SheImPERSONAtor Peak Piranha Plant Cove incoming!
Also the Mii Suit goes crazy next wave.
And the music sounds super oriental too, peak as always.

CloudyWii To clear up the "non-trickable half pipe", you can trick off it while drifting, it just depends on where you drive. i.e. drifting against the rail might cancel the trick, but going up the center of it might allow you to trick. Its complicated to type but I'm sure you get the idea of what I'm trying to say.

SheImPERSONAtor Idk think there are many. We already know most of what is coming in the future anyway through datamines, & unlike the other games, not many people are going to build something completely from scratch when we know it's coming officially in like a month or whatever. Same for some BCP tracks: it's a waste of time.

Coopa2-64 Someone Might Of Modded Mario Kart Tour And Put In Wii Rainbow Road But I Don't Think Mods For Mario Kart Tour Are Easy To Find Or They Might Not Exist.

OutofOrder @Williamgrave This isn’t SNES or 3DS Rainbow Road. It’s the Wii Rainbow Road. THE DAMN Wii. Tell me where you saw it before in MKT.

BowserJr03 I think you can trick, it just won't work if you hold a drift into it.

ToadFan99 I actually accidentally discovered that it's possible to NOT trick off of the half-pipe jump after the cannon. You have to go the left and grind against the rail up until you land on the other side of the jump.

But yeah, I was so hyped to play it that I couldn't sleep, and was caught off-guard when I entered the second section and was disappointed. At least the track's layout is completely unchanged.

BowserJr03 As much as I hate the 1 lap, I can see Nintendo's reasoning behind it for tour. The original wii version generally took over a minute to complete a lap, and that's with it's frantic nature. Tour being less intense would take even longer, so they had to cut down. I'm not sure scaling it bigger did good, the track now feels slower.

Let's just hope its 3 laps when wave 6 comes out.

CloudyWii I personally think Wii Rainbow Road is a really good track but its so lame in Mario Kart Tour; as to be expected considering everything about the game feels bland.

SheImPERSONAtor Why would it be anything more? It's so freaking long. In fact, every Rainbow Road is too long. Only GBA & DS will escape that. It's notike the course was good or anything in the first place.

CloudyWii If only Mario Kart Tour felt like a real Mario Kart. I'd be really happy for this track if it did.

SheImPERSONAtor They'd have to remove the antigravity, or use tracks which have a ton of pointless/no antigravity, which are the worst tracks in Mariokart 8. Save that for Tour 2 or whatever.

ToadFan99 And a hilarious fact too: People were so hyped about the course's reveal to the point where Wii RR was actually briefly TRENDING on Twitter. I'm dead serious.

ToadFan99 Never before have I been THIS hyped for a tour. As a Tour player the team did an amazing job translating the track to mobile. The layout and elevation look unchanged, and I'm surprised they managed to make the awkward half-pipe jump work.

Also here are two cool facts: This is the first Wii special cup track to make its retro debut, and the first non-remix Rainbow Road course in Tour since late 2019.

I was also in utter disbelief when I saw its reveal photo. Unlike DK Mountain, I actually didn't believe it was real and flocked to the official MKT Twitter. To say I was happy is an understatement.
