How to complete the ‘use a giant banana three times’ in Mario Kart Tour following the arrival of Nintendo’s Tokyo event.
The Mario Kart Tour Tokyo event is here until October 22nd 22:59 PT, meaning you only have that long to complete the ‘use a giant banana three times’ challenge. And yes, this means it’s time to get crazy with King Kong’s tied brother, Donkey Kong. Or Morton if you wish to go against the grain.
Although Mario Kart Tour has received a lot of backlash for its microtransactions and latest scheme to rid your bank account of £39 for a Diddy Kong Pack, there are positives to the game with Screenrant providing a worthwhile look at how it can influence the main series’ inevitable ninth instalment for the better.
However, before you check out that slice of looking on the bright side of life, the below guide will help you complete the ‘use a giant banana three times’ challenge.
How to use a giant banana three times in Mario Kart Tour with Donkey Kong
The most important thing to remember about this challenge is that you simply need to use a giant banana three times rather than hit three drivers. That means you don’t have to worry about placement or aiming.
In order to complete the challenge there are two drivers you can use: Donkey Kong and Morton. The giant banana special skill is exclusive to both of these Nintendo characters.
For Donkey Kong the best courses to compete on are Dino Dino Jungle and Rock Rock Mountain because these make it impossible for him to pick up three items and possibly go into Frenzy. Provided you’re fortunate enough to get a Giant Banana Frenzy, you should be able to complete the challenge with the swiftest of ease by spamming the item repeatedly for a short period of time.
We’ve been able to attain the giant banana enough times with relative ease in first, but Gamepur in particular note that the best odds at acquiring the giant banana are when sitting in second or third place so you may want to heed their advice.
But just compete with Donkey Kong on Dino Dino Jungle or Rock Rock Mountain, picking up every item box along the way, and you should be able to complete the challenge with relative ease.
How to use a giant banana three times in Mario Kart Tour with Morton
If you’re not particularly prone to Donkey Kong or you simply don’t have him, another driver you can use in his stead is Morton. If you decide to go this route then Kalimari Desert is the course you will want to compete on.
Similar to Donkey Kong with Dino Dino Jungle and Rock Rock Mountain, Kalimari Desert is a course in which Morton can get Frenzy by picking up the same item three times in a row.
Again, this’ll make the ‘use a giant banana three times’ especially easy if you’re fortunate to get a giant banana Frenzy. But even if you don’t the challenge shouldn’t take you too long to finish.
Mario Kart Tour is available on iOS and Android.
