Frantic speed and item-tossing mayhem await on these racetracks!
Race along with Mario and his friends in five single-player modes and over 30 courses. Knock out the competition with your driving skills as you rocket-start the race, use drifting and turbos at critical points, and deploy crazy items to gain an advantage.
Get ready for total shell-tossing mayhem! Choose one of 12 Nintendo characters as you race through challenging tracks that become even more so with deployable items at your disposal. Enlist in the Grand Prix for the trophy prize in eight different cups. Start a Time Trial, and try to best your fastest time with your own ghost. Play against a computer-controller kart in VS mode for a quick race. Try out some fun kart minigames like Balloon Battle and Shine Runners in Battle mode. Or try clearing some Missions to practice your technique in becoming the ultimate Mario Kart racer!
