Nintendo Smash Racing is a racing video game released by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. The game features various characters from many Nintendo franchises just like Super Smash Bros. does, but features the gameplay of Mario Kart. The game was originally planned for Wii U, but was released on 3DS because the developers wanted to update Mario Kart 8 instead.
The game features races in which 8 characters race for first place with the help of items obtained from Item Boxes. Characters can race on land, in the air, and underwater like in Mario Kart 7. Up to 4 players can race via local multiplayer while 8 players can race online.
