Mario Kart Tour Welcomes Yoshi’s Loyal Pup Poochy

Mario Kart Tour's latest update brings the Yoshi's Island track alongside Poochy as a playable character.

Many may have moved on from Mario Kart Tour, the mobile iteration of Nintendo’s wildly popular kart racer, but the game is still receiving updates four years after release. The latest update, titled the “Yoshi Tour,” introduces the Yoshi’s Island track from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s last DLC and a new playable character: Poochy.

Poochy is Yoshi’s loyal dog that made his debut all the way back in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island on the SNES. He has since appeared in every Yoshi game and even received a cute Amiibo. He might not be the most recognizable name to Mario fans, but he’s an important part of Yoshi’s legacy.

As for Mario Kart Tour, not much has truly changed in the years since its release. Nintendo was wise to start including tracks from this game in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe having introduced Birdo to its roster during the last DLC update, we could eventually see Poochy make the jump to the Switch.
