As was said on the site, US and Japan only:

https://mariokarttour.com/en-US



It says the beta will start at 14:59 Japan Time.

That's 1:59 AM EST/10:59PM PST/12:59 AM CST/7:59PM HAST if you're in North America.

(This is incorrect. Disregard)

I actually forget which account that I signed up under, whether it was my Japanese or American one. Well - I'll find out soon, hopefully!

Invites seem to still be Japan only for now. The site said they would start going out yesterday but probably didn't because it was a Sunday.
Sounds like they forgot to properly announce the game
The site says that people aren't allowed to upload images or video. Not that it will stop people from trying, but I'm not sure if we'll get some sort of direct until near the proper launch in Summer.

I wasn’t able to sign up but I’m excited to see details of the game. Will be interesting to see how they monetized it and how the game plays. If they handled this game properly I expect it will be a massive hit.

If they didn’t nail the monetization and gameplay then I expect it will quickly fade into the background. Hopefully they nail it though.

I signed up. I hope I get in. Eager to see if playing a Mario Kart game from my phone is as exciting as the proposition itself!

Wonder when they will provide more information on the game. Expecting a video to be dropped at some point in the future. Maybe this week, not sure if they will do it after E3.

NoA's started to send out US confirmation emails if you got picked for the beta, I just got mine.

They ended up randomly selecting who got in apparently, so even if you signed up you might not get in.

Came here to say the same thing. I wonder how they're going to enforce that "do not upload images or videos" note in the FAQ, btw.......

I got in, but didn't get the actual code, just an email saying I got in. That's all people are getting right now, right?

Sweet, literally just got the email saying I was selected!

I have yet to play a Nintendo mobile game I've really liked (didn't get far in Mario Run, AC Pocket Camp was too limited and too much F2P stuff, Fire Emblem I didn't love the small maps, and the dragon one I didn't even try).
Hopefully this'll be solid enough to hold my attention for a while.

THANK you for making this thread.

Gmail users, check your promotions folder. That's where I found my invite. Probably worth checking spam, too.

I feel the same way, except some of those I enjoyed at first, and then realize they just weren't fun. I really hope Mario Kart isn't a gacha-ridden shallow game like Fire Emblem and Dragalia were.

I checked my trash folder in Gmail and whoop, there it is! Strangely excited for this despite being mobile only.

I got an email saying I was selected and they'll send me another email when the beta is ready to start.

They sent me an email saying I got in, but no code yet. Didn't see it in spam either.
