Kirby's Dream Land Karting is an upcoming spin-off game in the Kirby franchise for the Wii U. It is similar to Kirby Air Ride, however, all characters are racing in karts in the Dream Land locale. In addition, Kirby's Dream Land Karting features many new characters and race courses, courtesy of the Wii U's superior hardware.
The seven items which can be picked up in item cubes are Hazard, Boost, Shield, Invincibility, Attack 1, Attack 2, Attack 3, and Warp Star. Each character puts their own unique twist and variation of each of these items.
- Hazard - The user drops or flings forward an object which will cause opposing karts to spin out or drive slower if hit.
- Boost - The user receives a substantial increase in speed for several seconds.
- Shield - The user is protected from damage from one other attack.
- Invincibility - The character slowly gains more and more speed. In addition, the character becomes temporarily invulnerable to all attacks.
- Attack 1 - The user shoots in any direction an object which will bounce multiple times off walls before shattering. Any character hit will spin out for an very short period of time.
- Attack 2 - The user fires several objects which will lock on to a character within range of the user's choosing. Any character hit will spin out for several seconds.
- Attack 3 - The user fires a deadly barrage of objects which will lock on to all characters in front of him. Any character hit will spin out for a few seconds and propelled in a random direction.
- Warp Star - The user, if exceedingly far behind, warps to the rest of the pack. If attempted in 1st or 2nd its effects may be reversed.
