|Media Included||Blu-Ray Disc|
Gameplay is highly similar to Mario Kart Wii, with elements from Mario Kart Double Dash. Gone is customization, underwater and air portions, and coins. Conversely, dynamic physics were introduced (engines can be shut down, for example).
In addition, characters from other Nintendo franchises make playable appearances, like Link, Kirby, Pikachu, and Samus. Sonic The Hedgehog also makes a surprise guest appearance.
