Mario Kart: Star Drive, for the Nintendo StarGame is the 9th installment in the Mario Kart series, after Mario Kart 8. This game brings back features from previous installments such as Kart customization from Mario Kart 7, anti-gravity driving from Mario Kart 8 and more.
Choose a character, customize your vehicle, and RACE! In this mode, like all other Mario Kart games, you play one cup against 11 other racers. At the end you are given points to determine how well you did and given a trophy if you place 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
See how fast you can beat the course! Another essential for a Mario Kart game, in this mode you are timed and you have to try to get the best time possible!
Two players in one kart or bike, no way! In this new mode, you can play on any course that you've unlocked with two players in the same kart or bike. The player in front drives and the back one uses the items.
You mission, if choose to accept it... In this mode, you have to complete set missions.
There are three games:
Pop those balloons! In this mode, you have three balloons tied to your kart. Your goal is to pop as many of your opponents balloons as possible with items. But they can hit you as well! So beware...
Get those coins! In this mode, you have to collect as many coins as possible. If you are hit with an item, you will lose coins.
Escape that maze! In this new mode, you are in a maze, which you have to escape from. Items can help you by letting you go through walls and more.
Many old features return. Those being: Coin collecting (7), Kart customisation (7), Gliders (7), underwater (7), tricks (Wii), Bikes (Wii), anti-gravity (8) and two players in one Kart (Double Dash). Having two players in one Kart is only available in Double Dash mode.
