Mario Kart 9 is a video game made by Power Paintbrush Productions in collaboration with Nintendo and the Power Team, planned for release in mid-2016 on the 3DS, and late in 2016 on the Wii U. There is also a New 3DS Remake for the 3DS Version of this game planned for early 2017, and a version for The V² planned for mid 2017.
Mario and his friends have to race around a total of 32 tracks, performing tricks, soaring on gliders, diving to watery depths or even taking rides up walls and ceilings!
Each of the 32 tracks are split into Grand Prix Cups, with 4 per cup. Four of these cups are original tracks, and another four cups contain retro tracks - in the 3DS Version, this is one from the SNES, two from the N64, two from the GBA, one GCN, three DS, three Wii and four 3DS. As for the Wii U Version, there is one SNES, one N64, one GBA, two GCN, two DS, two Wii, three 3DS and four Wii U.
This game features customisable options to adjust music, graphics and even the logo on your vehicle. It also offers a cool new style to the anti-gravity, an option to play the game using the touch screen and Mission Mode's return!
Special thanks to Kingler for filling in some of the character descriptions.
There are a total of 30 characters (not including DLC characters), however you can also play as Miis. With the exception of Miis and DLC Characters, every character has a Hyper Power.
Fly Guy is also available as a playable character in 3DS Multiplayer if you don't have a game card. Fly Guy is classified a middleweight character with perfectly balanced stats. He has no Hyper Power.

In this mode, you must complete the many preset missions. These range from driving through rings in order to collecting coins and beating a rival. You can choose whichever character you want.
After completing the 8 Missions in each level, you can fight the boss! Here's how...
- Dino Piranha (Level 1): Charges at the player. Knock him back with Mushrooms. To win, you have to knock him into the water!
- King Kaliente (Level 2): Shoots fireballs and coconuts. Grab a shell to hit his tentacles with. Hit all 4 to defeat him!
- Kamella (Boss 3): Beat her on GCN Baby Park (3DS and New 3DS) or Wii U Mario Kart Stadium (Wii U and V2). She can teleport later in the race, and also summons Goombas and Mushrooms.
- Bouldergeist (Boss 4): The player must collect 30 Coins. If you get hit by one of his Bomb Boos, you'll drop some of your coins! Get them back by ramming into Bouldergeist.
- Major Burrows (Boss 5): Throw a Bob-Om at him whilst he burrows to push him into your range. When you hit him, grab one of three mushrooms that appears after hitting him to deal damage. Repeat twice to beat him!
- Fiery Dino Piranha (Boss 6): Shoots fireballs, otherwise similar to Dino Piranha. Find a Mushroom and knock him off the stage with it. However, you need to knock him off three times to win!

At E3 2015, a reveal trailer for the game was displayed. It showed Mario racing along a track that looked similar to Mario Circuit (From this game), before changing to an icy track, and finally Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 7. As Mario raced, more characters turned up, until all 18 default characters were shown. The message "We'll all be waiting for you" then appears on the screen, followed by the game's logo and "Coming soon for 3DS and Wii U".
A few weeks later, another trailer showed up. This time, Mario and Luigi become Fire Mario and Ice Luigi, actual gameplay footage is seen, and at the end the message "Customise everything" appeared, along with the logo and "Coming 2016 for 3DS and Wii U".
In 2016, another reveal trailer was shown, with Fire Mario working on the Turbo Blooper, attaching Slim Wheels and a Super Glider. The message "Hundreds of vehicle combinations" appeared, and Mario ran to a storage space. He turned a gear, turning the background music from synthesised to orchestrated, and pulled a lever, grabbing a tablet and drawing a Lightning Bolt, which then appeared on his vehicle. The message "A variety of options" appeared, and Mario jumped into the Turbo Blooper, racing away with it. The message "Be the best racer in town" appeared, followed by the logo, "Coming 2016 for 3DS, Wii U and New 3DS" and "In collaboration with Power Paintbrush Productions".
Will be added soon.
- Steering in this game can be done by tilting the device/remote/tablet.
- This is the Power Team's first game on the 3DS, Wii U, New 3DS and V2.
- This is the first Mario Kart Game so far where the Standard Wheels aren't named 'Normal' in PAL Versions.
- A glitch character called If You Are Reading This, You Have Either Found A Bug Or Are... (The rest not fitting on the character name section) appears in this game. He resembles a Blooper, but has the stance of a Female Mii. If selected, the game crashes due to a significant lack of programming.
- Amiibo can still be used, just like they could be in Mario Kart 8.
- This is the first game by Power Paintbrush Productions.
- KirbiMiroir stated he is planning to make a sequel to this game - most likely based on Double Dash. He stated that he's intending to make it for the Nintendo 4D Viewer.
