Free to play
Based on the popular Nintendo game Mario Kart, Mario Kart Tour is now available to download and play for free on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. Simply download the game via Apple's App Store or Google Play for Android.
Is it really free?
The game is totally free to download and play, you'll just need an internet connection and a free Nintendo Account. There are, however, optional in-app purchases where you’d be spending real money to obtain virtual items such as new cars/characters, or a monthly 'Gold Pass' which unlocks special items.
How to prevent children from racking up a bill
We've previously heard of children using similar games to make in-app purchases without their parents’ knowledge, resulting in unexpected bills (see our 'My child spent £150 on Fortnite' MSE news story from last year).
When setting up a Nintendo Account, you can choose to set up a special account for kids aged 15 and under, which allows parents/guardians to use parental controls to apply restrictions to the child's account, and will receive an alert if any purchases are made.

If you go online to the Nintendo eShop, there’s currently up to 80% off over 300 games for the Nintendo Switch, until Sun 19 Apr. To download the games onto your Nintendo Switch, you’ll need to visit the eShop from your console and from there you’ll be able to buy and download the games.
