Mario Kart 3DS Video Slipstreams Behind Screenshots

Posted by James Newton

Blue sparks flying

You've probably already seen the Mario Kart 3DS screenshots, but it'd be better to see the game moving, right? Right.

The video below shows the game's customisable karts, aerial and aquatic racing and more. No Blue Shell either, which is a good thing, though there should be no chicken-counting at this stage.

Nintendo has promised Mario Kart will see release on 3DS before the year is out, so it won't be long until you can hold this game in your loving arms.

Hang gliders? Scuba diving? Car customization? This looks great! :)

They'd better fix the Battle mode in this one, though.

Here are the retro tracks that I can see: Luigi's Mansion from Mario Kart DS, Airship Fortress also from Mario Kart DS, Koopa Cape from Mario Kart Wii, and Maple Treeway from Mario Kart Wii. Those are some of the ones that I hoped would make it into this, so I'm happy that they have. Also, if you stop at 1:33, you'll see the tikis on the Donkey Kong Country Returns track.

(Man, NL is really slow right now... you cant have more traffic than...hm... IGN for instance).

I'm not that thrilled by the new Mario Kart. The basic hardware shortcomings of the 3DS are becoming more and more obvious - jagged etches everywhere, even some muddy textures although they just using comic relief/plain textures.
On the other hand, it seems they will stick more to actual karts - well, except for the u-boat and glider thing...

This game looks simply great. It's my Mario Kart, AND I NEED IT NOW!

Words can't explain how excited I am for it.
I hope It's out before August 25th! Maybe I can snatch my hands on it as a birthday gift..
