Mario Kart 3DS Details

9 June, 2011 - 4:20 am by

Mario Kart 3DS has been fully announced just 12 short months after the 3DS tech demo at E3 2010. Nintendo seem to have kept with Karts in this variation of the series. However they now include a Kart Glider for those sections of the race without a race track to drive on and a propeller for underwater racing! Customisation is the theme of this version as players can now select different bodies, wheels and gliders for each and every Kart, each designed to give the racing edge between competitors.

Nintendo have also confirmed that by the end of the year we will be racing up to 8 players via Wifi and Miis will return as drivable characters along side the usual suspects of racers from the Mushroom Kingdom. StreetPass and SpotPass are also supported but no details were released as to what they would provide. New and old tracks will be available with locations such as Wuhu Island and the jungles from Donkey Kong Returns will be featured.
