There is four different modes that a player can use: Grand Prix, Time Trial, Balloon Battle, Cash Snatchers, Missions, and Vault.
Grand Prix is basically the same from the Mario Kart series. You race against eleven other racers and attempt to get 1st place. Point division is the same as the Mario Kart games.

In Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart Super Circuit, 5th or worse forces the player to retry the race. If the racer fares this badly four times, the Grand Prix must be started over. In Mario Kart 64, 5th or worse forces the player to retry the race, but without the restrictions on how many times the player can retry a race. Starting with Mario Kart: Double Dash to recent installments including this one, the Grand Prix normally goes forth.
In this game there are four engine classes: 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and 200cc. Mirror Mode is unlocked after you complete Bomb Cup 200cc, and All-Cup Tour is unlocked when you complete the Bomb Cup on Mirror Mode. Mirror Mode and All-Cup Tour are not required to unlock the entire roster, but it can earn you bonus cars you can drive.
In Time Trial, you race alone on a course of your choosing. There are no other racers and no item boxes. When you gain a record for completing a course, a ghost is saved that follows the exact path you took who you can race later on.
Balloon Battle works the same way as it does in the Mario Kart series. The players are switched into two teams of six. Every player has 3 balloons, and whichever team pops the most balloons in the time limit is the winner.
In Cash Snatchers, there are two teams of 6 again. There are 35 coins in the stage, and whichever team can grab the most coins is the winning team.
There are 20 solo missions and 10 multi-player missions that the player can perform. Every 5 missions there is a boss battle who must be fought using items and well-timed dashes.
In the Vault, you can look at records that you have accumulated, as well as ghost data that you have earned on your own or via SpotPass. You can also visit the RACEWAY Store to purchase the Downloadable Cup and downloadable characters. In the store, you can also purchase trophies of characters and karts that give info on their origin and significance.
The amount of characters planned is 50; 20 default, 20 unlockable, and 10 that are downloadable via Nintendo eShop. Characters will be classed under one umbrella category: Basic, Speedy, Powerful, or Skilled. Characters have an option to either use the kart designed just for them, or they can take a standard kart, looking similar to the ones from Mario Kart 8.
"Hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario is taking a break from all his hero work and joining a big race he heard about. Mario has decided to take the kart he used in Mario Kart DS, the B Dasher, into the race. Mario is one of the more basic characters in the game, and is good for beginners."
|Kirby||"The pink puffball is here to race! In his second race since Kirby Air Ride, Kirby is pumped for the excitement that awaits on the race track this time. Using his Warp Star themed car, Kirby plots to shoot through the skies and come in first every time. Like Mario, Kirby is well suited for beginners."||
|Link||"Link is the hero of Hyrule and is ready to race! In Skyward Sword, he rides a large bird called a Loftwing. His car is designed after this bird, and its glide is the fastest of all the gliders. "||
|Pikachu||"Pikachu is the mascot of the franchise, Pokémon. He is the Mouse Pokémon who knows how to race. His car is resembled after one of his species using the move, Volt Tackle."||
|Ness||"The PSI-powered child, Ness, is joining the race! In races, Ness uses his PSI to control his motorbike called the Saturner, which is based off an odd alien, Mr. Saturn."||
|Pit||"Pit is an angel who is one of Palutena's most loyal servants. He has a bow and arrow that he often uses, but isn't allowed to in this race. Instead of a car, Palutena has granted him unlimited flight for the race using some majestic wings."||
|DK||"Donkey Kong is Mario's former rival and is now joining the race! He uses the kart he drove in in Mario Kart: Double Dash: the DK Jumbo. One of the strongest racers, DK sure packs a punch!||
|Villager||"A young but skilled mayor is taking some time off of his mayoral duties and is joining the race! The player is able to choose wether Villager is a female or a male in the race. Villager rides on a car designed to look like Kappn's boat."||
|Luigi||"Luigi is Mario's younger brother, who many seem to look down upon, but Luigi refuses to let that stop him from racing yet again! In races, Luigi uses his kart from Mario Kart DS, the Poltergust 3000."||

|Zelda||"The beloved ruler of Hyrule is joining the race! Zelda rides on a motorbike designed after the Triforce. She also has one of the best speeds in the game."||
||Speedy||Clear the Leaf Cup on 50cc.|

|Charizard||"This flaming dragon of doom is going to enter the race! Like the Wii Fit Trainer, Charizard uses a hovercraft based on his Mega Evolution X."||

There are 20 courses that you can race on normally, excluding the Downloadable Cup. The Downloadable Cup doubles as the Battle Stages in the game, but when you buy the DLC, it becomes a normal racing cup as well.
