The Nintendo mobile game Mario Kart Tour could soon turn into a proper video game. After more than a year of complaints, the game will remove its money-hungry gacha element in a new update.
Mario Kart Tour Kills Gacha
While the free-to-play gashapon element in Fire Emblem Heroes has raked in more than $1 billion, other Nintendo mobile games have suffered. With the cancellation of Dragalia Lost, Nintendo appears to be moving away from its reliance on the gacha system.
revealed Twitter, Mario Kart Tour will remove its current Gacha system from the game. The controversial racing game will no longer allow players to spend rubies to summon characters through pipes.
However, Tour is still essentially a free-to-play game. Yes, the gacha element is gone. On the other hand, you still need to spend premium currency to unlock kart parts like gliders.
Tour’s large number of playable characters is seen as one of its unique aspects. With gacha removed, every character will become playable, which may bring more players to the game. Will you jump back?
Battle Mode is here!
In addition to removing the gacha system, Mario Kart Tour will also get one of the most popular modes in the series. In an upcoming update, you can finally play online battle mode on your phone!
No release date for the new update has been announced. However, we do know that it will be released sometime this September. So, fasten your seat belts!
With this huge update, Tour is finally the kart game it was meant to be. While some people will still be hesitant about the mobile title, it’s sure to be a huge, impressive Mario Kart experience on mobile.
