The likelihood of battle mode balloons
Dataminers have been looking into Mario Kart Tour ever since it launched to find more content, and they keep coming up with new findings. In the past, they discovered hints at Battle Mode content, and with the game’s most recent update, even more evidence has surfaced.
In particular, sound files for multiple Battle Mode tracks have been added to the game. This includes GCN Cookie Land, DS Twilight House, GBA Battle Course 1, New York Minute, and Paris Prominade. On top of that, it seems like Battle Mode balloons will be available as rewards as well.
Again, this doesn’t confirm that Battle Mode content is coming, but it certainly seems plausible with these discoveries. We’ll see if these discoveries pan out as the weeks roll on.
