Mario Kart Tour may not be earning the same amount of money as Pokemon GO, but it is still a popular mobile racing game.
Tour has now generated an estimated $293 million in sales since its release in 2019. Sensor Tower (via GamesIndustry.biz) has released some new statistics.
This includes purchases on the gacha mechanic, which allows players to slay a pipe to unlock a new item or character, but also earnings from monthly Gold Pass subscriptions (priced at $4.99 USD).
Nintendo's cash flow is seemingly easy to come by, but last week the Japanese company announced that it would be removing the gacha elements and replacing these in-game mechanics with a 'Spotlight Shop' next month on the 4th October.
This new in-game store will remove the random element, but will still include the monestization features. Gold Pass subscriptions will also be available for players to purchase.
