    • Has anyone tried buying the Wild Wing Pack through the Mario Kart Tour app? I tried, and it said "Please select Complete Purchase from the Store Menu" but when I clicked OK, the next message said that my purchase was canceled even though the app stated that there were 3 packs remaining. Am I missing something? What Store Menu was the message referring to?
