Looking to view the landscape of Vancouver from an iconic gaming perspective?

The Mario Kart Tour smartphone app has announced that the game's next stop will be in Vancouver on Feb. 11 at 10 p.m. Fans of the tour will be able to take a spin through their home city starting next week. 

Mario Kart Tour tweeted: "The Valentine's Tour is drawing to a close, but don't let that break your heart! Starting Feb. 11, 10 PM PT, you can take a spin through the city of Vancouver and enjoy its natural beauty. What sights are you looking forward to?"

In addition, the company added a couple of silhouettes of new drivers that will be joining the Vancouver tour. The caption remarks that, "The one on the right looks ready for a camping trip. Surely they're excited to experience Vancouver's majestic nature!"

Launched in September of 2019, the Mario Kart Tour launched in Paris, and the tour also made a stop in London. The locations are made up of real-world locations as well as Mario Kart series favourites, and players pick up powerful items as they make their way around the course. A variety of drivers, karts and gliders can be collected and upgraded.

The game is free to start, but in-game purchases are available.
