It appears the freshly-launched Mario Kart Tour’s in-game gacha mechanics aren’t the only way Nintendo’ll be making money off it: A subscription-based “Gold Pass” has been revealed, allowing players to get more in-game rewards in Mario Kart Tour.

First-time users of the game can enjoy a two-week free trial, but the subscription plan runs at $4.99 USD per month.

The benefits of getting the Mario Kart Tour “Gold Pass” subscription are as follows:

  1. Gold Gifts by racing in tours.
  2. Special in-game badges from Gold Challenges.
  3. A 200cc racing mode.


Interested players can subscribe to the Gold Pass via the in-game Shop and the banner at the top of the in-game menu.

What’re your thoughts on the service? Will you be subscribing? Let us know in the comments!
