Basic gameplay elements
In the game, the player has to fly through a course with many themes from various Nintendo franchises, using a jetpack. There are many objects and obstacles depending on the course. Players can collect Coins from the Mario series and build more speed. On every track they can also find items that are to be used in advantage of their user. When players fly into something at high speed, they will crash.
Players can choose from a variety of jetpack fuels to use, most of which are based on things from games in their respective series. Each jetpack can be customized partially, for example what it shoots and how it looks like, affecting stats like speed, power, etc.
After playing a course, players get a ranking, out of ★, ★★, or ★★★, and when one of these is got on every course, the symbol will appear next to the player's name in for example online matches and multiplayer games.
The player plays a grand prix, challenging for a cup and to receive a ranking. There are 8 racers. The player can select the difficulty out of Easy, Simple, Novice and Hard.
The player races all alone to get through a course as fast as possible, without using any items. The obstacles that would normally break or something similar are solid.
The player can play along others at the same time to race against each other. They can customize the races, as in selecting the order of the racecourses and change the computer difficulty, and the engine classes.
The player connects to Nintendo Network to race online against other players from all over the world. The difficulty in this mode is always set to Novice. When the player disconnects from Nintendo Network during the race, a computer controlled character will continue for them and they will get no Online Points. In online mode, every racer chooses the track they want to race on, and then one of those is randomly generated.
Basic options of the game, like sound type, language, etc. The game is playable in English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Korean, Dutch, Russian, Polish, and Swedish.
The player can view their records on GPs and Time Trials. They can also view the amount of times they have used certain items, and the total amount of coins obtained.
