The next Tour in Mario Kart Tour will be the Kamek Tour, featuring the one and only Kamek

Nintendo has unveiled the next stop on the long-running Mario Kart Tour for both iOS and Android devices. While the Frost Tour is still underway in the popular mobile karting game, the wraps have been taken off the next tour which will be the Kamek Tour featuring you guessed it… Kamek. Kamek hasn’t starred in a Mario Kart game, however, he was planned to be in Mario Kart 64 which was released back in 1996 in Japan and 1997 here in the west, but he was randomly replaced by Donkey Kong. Kamek was also planned for Mario Kart 8 but again he never made the final cut. The Kamek Tour will be starting soon and features a remixed version of Ghost Valley 1.
