The Mario Kart Tour for Mobile has now generated around $300 million in revenue ...

Mario Kart Tour may not be worth the same amount of money as Pokemon GO, but it's still a decent mobile racing game.

Tour had gone over 200 million in downloads and $200 million in player spending since it was released in 2019. Now, Sensor Tower (via GamesIndustry.biz) has shared some additional statistics. The Tour has now generated an estimated $293 million for Nintendo.

This covers purchases related to the gacha mechanic - where players spit out a pipe to unlock a new item or character - but also monthly Gold Pass subscriptions (priced at $4.99 USD).

Nintendo makes a lot of money out of it, but last week the Japanese company announced that it would remove the gacha elements and replace them with a 'Spotlight Shop' next month on the 4th October.

This new in-game store will reportedly eliminate the random element, but will still include the monestization features. Gold Pass subscriptions will also be available for players to purchase.
