Mario Kart Tour Multiplayer Still Coming, But Nintendo Won't Say When

Mario Kart Tour Multiplayer Still Coming, But Nintendo Won't Say When

Mario Kart Tour is more than a month old now, but the promised multiplayer update hasn’t come yet. Nintendo promises that it’s still coming but won’t commit to exactly when we can expect it.Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuku shared the detail from a Nintendo earnings call on Twitter. The company reiterated that it plans to introduce online multiplayer, but can’t give further comment on details.The game launched with single-player only, but it can be confusing since parts of it appear similar to online play–from bots with player-like usernames to performing an online check before starting a race. For the time being, you can add friends and even gain some rewards for doing so, but the only way to compete with them is indirectly. During Ranked Cup events, you can compare your score to your friends for bragging rights. The menu has said a Multiplayer mode is “Inbound!” since launch.Mario Kart Tour is a very different take on the classic game tailored for mobile devices, making it more of a live game with seasonal events and characters to earn, along with microtransactions and even a Battle Pass-like subscription for extra rewards. On the whole we found that it has some good ideas that Nintendo could borrow for future console Mario Karts.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC in less than a week on November 5, and so far the looks we’ve gotten at the game in action on high-end hardware have been impressive. With a launch trailer that dropped on Halloween, Rockstar gave us one more visual treat before the game’s release.The trailer showcases a specific point in the story of RDR 2, when Arthur Morgan and his fellow Van der Linde gang members are hounded off the mainland and into the Caribbean. It’s maybe very slightly spoilerish, but it also gives Rockstar an opportunity to show off some truly beautiful vistas again.If you’re already rustling in the Old West with Red Dead Online on consoles, you can participate in the spooky Halloween event for special rewards and partake in discounts on bladed implements like tomahawks. It also introduces a limited-time mode, Fear of the Dark, which grants extra in-game currency. The PC version will still be able to play the special mode for the first week after launch, since it ends on November 12.Meanwhile, the fast-approaching launch means you only have a little longer to pre-order and claim bonuses through the Rockstar Games Launcher. Be sure to check out our pre-order guide to see what you can get, and make sure you’re prepared with the system specs. Meanwhile, if you order through Green Man Gaming, you could potentially get a big discount of sorts.

Kenny Omega's AEW Dynamite Entrance Is A Love Letter To Undertale

It’s no secret that professional wrestler and executive vice-president of All Elite Wrestling Kenny Omega loves video games. And on the October 30 episode of TNT’s weekly wrestling show, AEW Dynamite, Omega showed off his love for Undertale.Before he entered the ring, his video package played a 16-bit cutscene that was very reminiscent of the game, featuring a yellow and red disembodied head, which is totally a knock at the New Japan Pro Wrestling’s logo–a company Omega wrestled for–explaining Omega left all his friends and now, he’s all alone. This includes a silhouette of Omega’s former tag team partner, Kota Ibushi. You can check out the video for yourself below.The sound effects and dialogue from the end of that section are taken directly from Undertale. After the video package ended, Omega entered wearing a Sans mask and outfit, while Megalovania–the song from the game–played in the arena. Surprisingly, this worked incredibly well as entrance music for one of the greatest wrestlers of this generation.This was a Halloween-themed episode, which contained a lot of Rick & Morty moments, clips, and masks, as AEW was helping promote the upcoming season of the animated series. The Best Friends and Orange Cassidy wrestled as two Ricks and one Morty in their 6-man tag match during the evening.You can catch more video game references from Omega every week on TNT’s AEW Dynamite which airs ever Wednesday night.
