Mario Kart Tour Subscription Explained - All Gold Pass Exclusive Rewards

Mario Kart Tour Subscription Explained - All Gold Pass Exclusive Rewards

Here's how the Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass subscription service works, and all the rewards it offers.

Mario Kart Tour is out right now, but unfortunately some features of the game are locked behind a subscription service from Nintendo. In this Mario Kart Tour subscription guide, we'll be detailing the monthly cost of the subscription service, as well as revealing what you'll be getting by paying the monthly fee.

Mario Kart Tour Subscription Price

At the launch of Mario Kart Tour, the subscription service for the game costs $4.99 each month. There's no option to pay for multiple months at a time, so this is the only payment model you can sign up to as of right now.

But if it's your first time signing up for the Mario Kart Tour subscription, you can get a two week free trial. This two week period fits into the same period that the tracks in the game rotate, so you'll be able to race through one real world location during your free trial.

Mario Kart Tour Subscription Rewards

Right now, the potential rewards for the Mario Kart Tour subscription service are a little unknown due the game only having just launched. However it appears there are three main rewards for signing up to the service, which we've detailed below.

  1. 200CC - You'll unlock a higher difficulty setting for the game.
  2. Gold Gifts - You can obtain Gold Gifts by racing in tours, and some of these gifts include new cars and characters, like Metal Mario.
  3. Gold Challenges - You'll be able to undertake special challenges, which can reward you with some in-game badges.

These are the three main bonuses for signing up to the Mario Kart Tour subscription service. It's worth noting that you can transfer your Gold Pass subscription if you end up switching devices. So if you start playing Mario Kart Tour on Android and then switch over to an iOS device, you can take all your earned rewards and active subscription with you.

It's important to remember to remember that Mario Kart Tour is a free-to-play game. So the game is entirely free to download on both Android and iOS devices, the subscription service is the only thing you can pay for.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
