How to download and play Mario Kart Tour from Belgium?

Publié le

After long months of waiting, Mario Kart Tour is finally available! You can experience real races directly from your smartphone at any time of the day. At least if you do not live in Belgium where the game is unfortunately not available. If, however, you want to test Nintendo’s latest mobile game, here’s how to do it.

Mario Kart Tour, illegal in Belgium

The reason why Mario Kart Tour is not allowed in Belgium is that the game does not meet the legal requirements on the territory.

Nintendo’s mobile games are all based on a simple but very effective business model. These are free to download and play but have several small integrated purchases to unlock additional content (often purely cosmetic).

These elements are often obtained randomly with a lottery system. Take Fire Emblem Heroes, for example, another Nintendo mobile game. In the latter, you use your virtual currency to get new characters but they arrive randomly.

And that’s where Belgian justice comes into play. For some time now, the latter has prohibited the availability of games with a system equivalent to a “lottery”. The Belgian Gaming Commission then considers this to be a “game of chance”, making the whole game illegal.
