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. 

Have a look at the trailer for the Valentine's Tour.
