Mario Kart Violet (Japanese: マリオカートバイオレット) is a 2017 Mario Kart game made by Nintendo for the Nintendo Wii U. The project started on December 16, 2015, and is planned to be released on January 9, 2017 (Japan).  The predecessor to Mario Kart Violet is Mario Kart 8.

Mario Kart Violet will have several downloadable packs, most of them $4 or less. All of them will have 3-4 characters inside, and two downloadable cups will be available for $2 each. If you have Super Smash Bros. 4 data on your Wii U, you can get the SSB4 Pack for free.


These are the characters of Mario Kart Violet. They're separated by how heavy they are. Light characters are in the Lightweight section, Middleweight characters are in the Middleweight section, and heavy characters are in the Heavyweight section.

Lightweight characters are generally faster than the other class weights, and can be knocked around easily by Middleweight and Heavyweight characters. Middleweight characters are generally slower than Lightweight characters but are faster than Heavyweight characters. Middleweight characters can knock around Lightweight characters but can be knocked around by Heavyweight characters. Heavyweight is the slowest class weight, but can knock around the other two class weights easily.

The gameplay in this game is very similar to that of all the other games in the series, taking a lot of ideas from the series' two most recent installments. The player can pick different characters from the roster to play as, each with its own weight class. Just like in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8, the max number of racers is 12. Players can grab items from Item Boxes, like in all the other games. Different items do different things. You get different items depending on your place. If you're in third, second, or first place, you won't receive strong items. If you're in fourth, fifth, or sixth place, you have a low chance of getting strong items. If you're in seventh, eighth, or ninth place, you have a great chance of getting strong items. If you're in tenth, eleventh, or twelfth place, you will almost always receive strong items. Stronger items are items that are quite effective against other players. Weaker items are items that aren't as effective but can still be used to your advantage.

Like in its two predecessors, this game features anti-gravity and gliding. These features are completely unchanged. Underwater driving is kept, though it's changed. Mario Kart Violet introduces a new feature: Water Dashing. You can drive around in the middle of the water, and if you're going fast enough you can drive on top of it. Items were changed so that they cooperate with this new feature. For example, if you were to use a Red Shell underwater, it would still aim for the nearest player that's in front of you, no matter what. If you drive over an anti-gravity "ramp", then you'll be able to drive on top of the water.

Mario Kart Violet also introduces Pit Stops into the series. Pit Stops give everyone who passes through an item (as long as they don't already have one), and also allow you to change the kind of wheels/gliders you're using.

The Red Shell is a shell that aims for the nearest player that's in front of the user. When it hits, the victim topples over, slows down, and has to regain speed.

Green Shell
Green Shells are like Red Shells, except that they do not aim for the nearest player. Instead they go straight forward, bouncing off walls either until it breaks, hits a player, or falls off the map.
