Thank you for taking the time to look at Mario Kart Asteroid. This template signifies that it is an article that belongs to Dylan.

The gameplay will be similar to past Mario Kart games, where up to 12 racers compete, either human players or computer-controlled characters, avoiding obstacles and using items to their advantage across many unique tracks. Features such as gliding and anti-gravity make a return. Kart customization returns and is more varied then ever, alongside a new track builder. Mopeds are a new 4th vehicle body, and the different vehicle bodys now have unique attributes.
Many new features are introduced. Underwater diving has been changed to hover driving, although you can switch to underwater diving at any time by pressing a button. The major feature is the new Asteroid Drill technique. There are certain parts of courses where there are rainbow screens. Driving through them turns your kart into a drill where you can use gyro controls to drive through space and drill through asteroids.

In 4 different levels of difficulty, 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and Mirror (which is essentially 150cc, except all courses are backwards), the player races against CPUs through different cups of 4 tracks each to win as many trophies as possible. This can be played with up to 12 people.
This new mode can be considered the "story mode" of the game, where a giant tournament commences and you try to make your way to the top by challenging other players to a race. You can put up to 24 different racers in a tourney, and there can be an unlimited amount of players sharing up to 12 Nintendo Asteroid consoles.
This mode allows you to race for the best time in a course, equipped with only 3 Mushrooms. There are no Item Boxes or other opponents, though ghosts can be obtained from other people and you can race alongside them. The speed is equal to 150cc.
After an absence in Mario Kart 7, VS makes a return in Mario Kart Asteroid, where you can race through a number of courses of your choosing, rather than being limited to the cups. This can be played with up to 12 players.
Battle Mode features exclusive battlefields with different modes inside that differ from regular races.
Everyone starts off with 3 Balloons, and whoever carries the most balloons at the end (or the last survivor, if everyone loses all their balloons) is the winner. Similar to the Mario Kart DS version of Balloon Battle. This can also be played with different item restrictions.
Similarly to the Balloon Battle of MKW, you get points for knocking people's Shines away, but you lose points for losing a Shine of your own. You can hold up to 3 Shines, which is the number you start off with.
Green Star Frenzy
Similar to Shine Runner from MKDS, you must collect Green Stars scattered across the track. After 30 seconds, the players in last are eliminated and the timer restarts until there is one player left.
It has been confirmed that a Track Builder will also appear in Mario Kart Asteroid - how it works is unreveald so far.
