SEOUL – May 12, 2022 – This May marks the second anniversary for Nexon’s mobile racing game, KartRider Rush+. The anniversary events give loads of free rewards and perks to both new and loyal fans. Plus, fresh new legendary karts, characters and tracks will be added.

From today until the end of the month, players can claim their second anniversary assortment gift coupon to obtain Legendary grade Speed kart, “Beetle Dasher Max,” “Legendary Flying Pet ‘Lil’ Dark Fairy,” Legendary character “Cotton Candy Diz” and other GOAT time-limited rewards.
Under the “Thank you, Riders!” event, those who achieve “full two years login,” “reach level 108,” “register in May 2020,” and so on, will receive a “Gold Medal Racer” badge, “2-year anniversary” title and more. New riders below level 40 will receive “Diz’s Gift,” a Racer and Rookie Growth Pack.
Riders who login by Wednesday, May 18, can exchange “Kart Tire” for some Legendary Karts such as “Starship Solid,” “Bazzi Battler,” “War Panda” and more.
With Season 13 underway, riders will discover several updates on in-game content including ‘Super Cotton’ kart and “Glaze” kart which will have much stronger abilities. “Thermal Buggy” kart will also be available exclusively through the anniversary event. “Sugar,” the owner of “Super Cotton” and “Pierrot,” the maestro of the Theme Park will be released for players as well.
In addition to all of the above, the maximum level for players will be extended to 120 and growth quests with rewards added to each level.
From May 13, “Witch City (Fairy),” “Party Arena (Carnival),” and several other new tracks will be opened with “Cross Server Ranked Mode,” “PRO-License” and “Simulation Mode” coming soon.
