For a number of months Nintendo UK has been hosting regular Mario Kart 7 community races, but those that want to compete and meet other racers will now have a chance to do so in more detail with the new Facebook app that's been launched.
As well as weekly races, the new app will allow for greater interaction and competition; if you enter your Mario Kart 7 Mii name you can link to your Facebook account, with the following perks and events set to be on offer.
Hall of Fame
Race your way to the top and get immortalised in the Hall of Fame. Every month, the app will keep track of the best racers across the Nintendo UK Mario Kart 7 Community and induct someone permanently into the Hall of Fame.
- Event Races - Get bragging rights by beating your friends and other Mario Kart 7 players from across the UK in community races every week and special monthly event races. The most recent race leaderboards will also be showcased on the community page.
- Time Trials – Think you can’t be beaten on Melody Motorway or Rainbow Road? Prove it with the Time Trial leaderboards. Each track will have its own permanent leaderboard so you can show off your skills on your favourite tracks and battle it out for the record times.
Join in the fun with other Mario Kart 7 fans online. Swap community codes, set up races with other players and participate in Mario Kart discussion on the community page.
This MK7 Community Application is live now, but only works through Facebook on browsers, and not smartphone/tablet apps. Check it out at its official page.
Are you going to sign up and race for a place on the leaderboards?
