How to Play
First, the player must insert 2 quarters or 2 tokens, and possibly insert a Memory Chip or log-in to your online profile within the timelimit. They can then ajust the seat and take a picture to merge with Mario's face. They then choose a character; either the starting ones or the characters you have unlocked on your Memory Chip or online profile. You can then choose "Grand Pix" mode or "Time Trial" mode.
If the player chooses Grand Pix mode, they can choose any track from the Shell Cup; if they have played them all (as shown on the Memory Chip or profile), they can play the Mushroom Cup and Fire Cup. If the player has completed one of those they can play the Star Cup and Crown Cup. Most characters are unlocked by completing all cups.
If the player chooses Time Trial mode, they must race against ghosts of other players on the machine and other playthroughs of the course from the player. They can also race against an average time limit, either normally or Mirror. At the begining, they select 3 items via roulette that can be collect from Item Chests. All modes can be played with up to 4 people if they "Search" for each other at the same time.
An add-on called the Chip Changer can be used to transfer Memory Chips to Data E-Cards, which are used in Nintendo Kart (console game) and Nintendo Kart GP X. They are usally placed within distance of Nintendo Kart GP X, and also given to game shops recieving copies of Nintendo Kart. A prototype of the Chip Changer appeared at Fantendo World '13, to show what it used to look like.
