Mario Kart Tour for iPhone will be free-to-play, free!

Nintendo has recently confirmed that its new Mario Kart Tour game will be free-to-play . That is, you can download for free on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch from the iOS App Store, but will have integrated purchases.

As with Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem Heroes , players will have the opportunity to enjoy Mario Kart Tour without paying a penny. But through in-app purchases improvements can be acquired that provide advantages over rivals.

The truth is that Mario Kart has become one of the greatest successes of Nintendo in its video game platforms. In fact, it has outsold The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for now ...

Nintendo will not force Mario Kart Tour players to pay

The term "free-to-start" or "free-to-play" can be confusing and scare players. It suggests that Mario Kart Tour can be downloaded from the App Store only to enjoy a couple of hours of game without paying, and then have to pay to unlock additional content or the entire game.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Nintendo will not force players to pay for unlocking the full content of Mario Kart Tour. Satoru Iwata, former president of Nintendo, explained that "he does not like free-to-play titles."

    "I have come to the conclusion that there is a small degree of insincerity towards consumers with this terminology, its proper term would be 'free-to-start'."

Nintendo has already learned the lesson with Super Mario Run. It offered the first levels completely free, but then urged to pay € 9.99 to play the rest of the game. The strategy was not very successful, let's say.

    The checkered flag has been raised and the finish line is near. A new mobile application is now in development: Mario Kart Tour! #MarioKartTour Releasing in the fiscal year ending in March 2019.

Mario Kart Tour will be available in the iOS App Store before March 2019 , and although you have in-app purchases, we are sure that we will love its gameplay.
