Close to $300 million in revenue has been generated by Mario Kart Tour for Mobile ...

Mario Kart Tour might not be a household name as Pokemon GO, but it's still a popular mobile racing game.

Tour has now earned an estimated $293 million in revenue since its release in 2019. Sensor Tower (via GamesIndustry.biz) has provided some additional data.

This includes purchases on the gacha mechanic - where players poke off a pipe to unlock a new item or character - as well as monthly Gold Pass subscriptions (priced at $4.99 USD).

Nintendo's money is reportedly fairly easy to make, 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 eliminate the random element, but will still include the monestization features. Gold Pass subscriptions will also be available for players to purchase.
