KartRider Rush+ Received The Season 5 Update This Week

It's been a minute since we've seen anything for KartRider Rush+, but this week e saw the Season 5 update be added. The update brings in a brand new theme along with a ton of additions as this is one of the biggest updates to be thrown into the game to-date. This includes a couple of events, the first one running from January 8th until February 14th where you can get a permanent kart reward for finishing the eight-day check-in event, while the other runs from January 31st until February 14th where you can participate in a special Valentine's Day event. it's not often that the team goes all out like this for a season since a couple of them have been pretty mundane stuff. This is the first time they've really pushed a ton of new features and additions as they appear to be getting people back into the game. You can read more about the season below.
