Join Our Mario Kart 7 Communities for Festive Fun!

Posted by James Newton

Show us some skill

If you're one of the many thousands unwrapping a 3DS console and/or Mario Kart 7, you probably want to try out its really rather good online modes.

We've put together not one, not two, but three official Nintendo Life racing communities for you to take part in. Here's how to get involved:

  • Load up Mario Kart 7
  • Install the Mario Kart Channel — this is your best way to keep up to date with MK goings-on
  • Head over to Online Multiplayer
  • Select Communities, then Join
  • Click Enter Code and enter these delightful digits:

150cc — All Items — 00-2104-5343-9763

150cc — Bob-ombs Only — 52-6562-9908-9924

150cc — No Items — 04-0673-3404-8527

You might even run into the odd Nintendo Life staff member online!

Happy racing and Merry Christmas from everyone at Nintendo Life.

Wish I got a 3DS for my xmas present, but given I have so many other games systems maybe not getting one isn't such a bad idea. Darn you JRPGs in my backlog!

I've got it saved, but I probably won't do any racing until I've done more single player practice.

Have to add these later :). I actually have plenty of different communities from different sites but there's no players so I just end up racing in worldwide. Hopefully these will be more alive...

@brandonbwii: tap the 'mario kart channel' banner at the bottom of the main MK7 menu. it'll tell you it has to install data onto the SD card or whatever. :3

Huh, the server is blocking others too then. Wow the difficultly spikes after 100cc, I was getting all 3 star ranks but the 150cc are proving too hard. Also I'm also Aqueous online.

edit: working now

How would we know we were playing staff?

I got the game today. I'll join as soon as my 3DS recharges.

By the way, is there any chance of you guys creating a Nintendo Life 50cc community?

theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon said:

PLEASE LISTEN UP! BASIC ETIQUETTE!

When joining a community, DON'T immediately start the raceespecially if people are sending the 'Let's wait for more players' message. Remember, the more people you're racing with, the more fun you'll have! It'll autostart on its own after a minute or two, so please have the courtesy to wait for others!

Also, anyone caught using either of the Wuhu glitches to get a cheap win in the Nintendo Life communities WILL be publicly named and shamed. No one wants to race with a cheater, so just enjoy the tracks for what they are — they're great when everyone plays fairly! :)

The all item one seems to be the only one with people on. Also if you see this it was an honour getting to race you Thomas Whitehead. Hope to race you guys all soon.

Edit: Join me for a race theblackdragon?

Aqueous said:

What? I was in with three other people, on the second race and got knocked out..... Maybe it's our bad connection or my brothers on the new 360. I'll catch everyone another time, hopefully I'll have unlocked some more worth while parts.

I will start playing once I get my VR above 10,000 for the golden kart. Remember, racing in communities you do not gain VR, only World Wide.

Hey! I'm new and gonna join, as I've been lurking for a while. While I've only just got the game and only beat/triple-starred the 50cc, so I hope I can at least provide a moderate challenge...

I also really need to get to a computer to upload my avatar.

Just joining now after getting the game with Christmas money. I want to try to complete all of the cups first though before I put much effort into the online mode.
(I'll show up as Chris since I don't feel like changing my name)

I'm having fun losing to you all in the online Mario kart! With more practice, hopefully I'll be able to win once in a while. ;). It's a heck of a good time. Also, after I joined the all items group, I got about forty new people in my street pass plaza. They all say "by invitation". Is this normal? It's cool regardless, but I was just curious. It's too bad that the "by invitation" folk aren't added to my streetpass world map.

@Aqueous: You think that's bad? I've never been able to connect to online matches because my brother has an Xbox 360 and iPod Touch that he always uses, and he as well as myself and both my parents have laptops. I also have an Xbox 360, and when I try to use mine, the internet acts up because my brother is already on and is hogging the bandwidth. He says I'm just trying to blame him. It stinks.

PinkSpider said:

to all the non cheaters who wanna play fair or as fair as can be when it comes to blues lol.
come join me 54 7436 5412 6010

theblackdragon said:

@PinkSpider: If these people are using the Wuhu glitches in the official NL communities, by all means, name them here! No one wants to race with a cheater, so knowing exactly who doesn't want to play fair gives us the option of bailing and looking for another group of people to play with.

At what time do you guys usually go online? It's a rare occassion for me to catch somebody playing. And if I do catch somebody, there's only one or two people racing.
