|Mario Kart: Coin Heaven|
Mario Kart: Coin Heaven is a game for the Nintendo NX. The game will be released in 2017. It is a sequel to Mario Kart 8.
Along with underwater driving, gliding, and anti-gravity driving mechanics returning from Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 respectively, this game adds four new methods of transportation. These modes include:
- Drilling: A scrapped mechanic from Mario Kart 8, drilling allows the player to go through walls, and can sometimes allow the player to go underground.
- Teleportation: Specific portals can teleport players to other areas of the track. These areas are occasionally hidden otherwise.
- Track Creation: When driving in this transportation mode, the player creates a track in front and behind themselves, potentially allowing them to drive on air. These tracks stay in front of/behind the player.
- Light Driving: Players can drive on light in this transportation mode (this mode is currently just a concept and is subject to change).
The game also expands on the coin mechanic featured in previous titles.
