Mario Kart AU/NZ My Nintendo Cup

15 July 2021

Join the Mario Kart AU NZ My Nintendo Cup and you could win My Nintendo Gold Points and Platinum Points!

Owners of Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe, get ready to put the pedal to the metal! Participants across Australia & New Zealand with a Nintendo Switch Online account will have a chance to compete in this in-game event on the following dates:

  • Tournament Day 1: Sunday 18th July

  • Tournament Day 2: Sunday 25th July

  • Tournament Day 3: Sunday 1st August

Players can take part in up to 24 races each Sunday and will be scored based on their in-game ranking in each race. The top eight players with the highest accumulated scores will be selected to receive 2,500 My Nintendo Gold Points, plus all participants will automatically receive 50 Platinum Points for entering*. Keep a look out on our social channels in the following week, as we will be announcing the top 8 players with their Nintendo Account nickname!**

Scores reset at the end of each day, so, if you don’t win the first day, try again! But please remember, a single player may only claim one 2,500 Gold Point prize. If you happen to land in the top eight during the remainder of the event, you won’t get another 2,500 Gold Points. Instead, the next eligible player on the leaderboard will get the prize. This way, everyone has a shot! Keep in mind, you can still be awarded the 50 Platinum Points for each tournament day (just for participating) so that’s a total of 150 points for all three days!

Join the tournament on Sunday (18th and 25th July and 1st August) from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm AEST | 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm NZST by selecting Online Play***, picking Tournaments, and then click on Search by Code. Once there, you can enter the day's tournament code:

We hope you’ll be able to join in. See you at the starting line!
