Is that low or high?

Probably on the lower end. But this game heavily relies on a subscription and considering the first 2 weeks are free, it’s going to be interesting to see how this game does on the 2nd month and who is going to maintain their subscription.

I got the free trial and then unsubscribed. The Gold Pass is more expensive than Nintendo Switch Online and as expensive as Mario Kart 8 in a year, without owning anything. The prices for rubies and pilots is also very expensive. If there was an option of a one time payment of 20 or 30 dollars, I would have paid, but the monetization here is awful. I have all Mario Kart games and 2 copies of Super Circuit, but Nintendo won't get one cent from me for this game.

I haven't spent anything on it and am still enjoying it a lot.

I downloaded it. Played a few races on that first day and haven’t gone back to it. It’s far more grotesquely “mobiley” than Super Mario Run and turns me off.
