Mario Kart for New Nintendo 3DS is an upcoming Mario Kart game for the New Nintendo 3DS that will be the follow-up game of Mario Kart 8, a Wii U title.

Drivers

Mario Kart for New Nintendo 3DS includes 25 total drivers (12 starting drivers and 13 unlockable drivers). The following is the order of what weight classes go by in order from lightest to heaviest: Feather, Light, Medium, Cruiser, and Heavy.

Starting drivers

Unlockable drivers

Unlocking criteria

Like Mario Kart 8, characters, except for Miis, are unlocked at random by completing cups where fixed characters were unlocked by completing specific cups on specific engine classes in many cases but, a new character cannot be obtained if the same cup is played in the same engine class again; for example, if the 50cc Mushroom Cup is played and a new character is unlocked, then another character cannot be obtained from the 50cc Mushroom Cup. Additionally, unlockable characters appear as CPUs during races when they are not yet unlocked, making this game the second Mario Kart game to do so. Miis are the only character not randomly unlocked as they are always the 8th character unlocked.

Character statistics

Just as in Mario Kart 8, characters get their own specific stat boost that accounts for kart customization, based on their weight class. The units are out of 6. In general, light characters have high values ​​of Acceleration, Handling, and Off-Road, while heavy characters have high values ​​of Speed and Weight. Hover over the weight class column to see the characters in the represented weight class.
