Mario Kart Tour will be the next title that Nintendo will be releasing on mobile. The game is currently pegged for a release this summer and the beta of the game has already kicked off over in Japan. Thanks to users who are participating in the games beta, they have shared images and details of the game, giving us an idea of what to expect.

We should point out that since this is a beta, what you see now could be subject to change, but for the most part this is what we can expect. According to the screenshots and information from the players, the way the game is played is pretty much like Mario Kart, except that acceleration is automatic and all users need to do is swipe their screen to control their character.

We’re not sure if you can get the red/purple sparks in Mario Kart Tour, so we’ll have to wait to try it to find out. Also, what’s interesting about the game is that it will be played vertically, not horizontally. There will also be a bunch of characters to choose from at the start, which includes, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Toad, Toadette, Rosalina, Waluigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario, Larry, Lemmy, Ludwig, Dry Bones, and Dry Bowser.

Mario Kart Tour was previously reported as being “free-to-start”. This means that it could adopt a similar model as Super Mario Run where it will be free to a certain stage, but beyond that players will need to pay to unlock the rest of the game and its contents.

Tor Browser Launched For Android, Brings Private Internet Browsing

Browsers like Google’s Chrome have a feature called Incognito Mode which is meant to help keep your browsing sessions private. However, sometimes that doesn’t always work as intended and that there is still some work to be done to ensure a truly private browsing session. However, if you don’t mind using an alternative browser, then you might be interested to learn that the Tor Browser has officially launched for Android.

The Tor Browser for Android has been in the works for a while with its alpha released back in September last year. However, the Tor Project has announced that the first stable release is now available on Android and for those who are interested, they can go ahead and take the browser for a spin

For those who aren’t so technically inclined, the Tor network has remained something of a mystery due to the complicated steps needed in order to connect to it. However, the Tor Browser will help do away with some of those complications and make it a more straightforward process, thus bringing it to the mainstream.

Since the browser is based on Mozilla’s Firefox, there will be certain features and conveniences that you might recognize. Interestingly enough, Mozilla had previously announced that they would be exploring the possibility of integrating Tor connectivity into Firefox for a “super private” browsing mode. If you’re interested in checking out the Tor Browser for Android, head on over to the Play Store for the download.
