A new week, a new round-up. Whilst I can’t cover everything that has happened (I can never find enough hours in the day), here are the most notable things that have happened this week. Mario Kart Tour has now released on smart devices and it seems to be a bit of a bittersweet experience, most notably due to Gacha and Subscription features.
Mario Kart Tour is now available in most regions for iOS and Android. The Free to play game has both Gacha and Subscription services that can encourage players to pay in order to acquire particular characters that they want to play as. You can also unlock karts and customization options as well.
