Unfortunately, there is no native controller support on the game, a feature which players have been asking for since release.

Despite the many calls for it to be added, Nintendo haven't yet followed through. However, there is a way to use certain controllers. Let's take a look at it!

Touch-screen emulator

Once you've downloaded the software, you'll likely need a controller made by said company. As annoying as this is, there isn't yet a way of getting standard controllers (Xbox/PlayStation) to work with the game.

Finally, just start up Mario Kart Tour and calibrate your controls. The nature of touch-screen emulators makes it very easy to adjust what the controls do.
