Mario Kart 7 - News


  • News GAME is Selling a 2DS + Mario Kart 7 for £79.99

    Perfect for little 'uns, or young-at-heart big 'uns

    Though the New Nintendo 3DS is now just a few weeks away, it won't be the perfect option for everyone. The 2DS - with its tablet design and 2D-only screen - is targeted at young children, or those that fancy a change from Nintendo's clamshell systems. For those in the UK that have been...



  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo Life - Training for MK8

    Now we're getting serious

    Earlier this year we revived the Nintendo Life Mario Kart community event, enjoying some shell-throwing hijinks for a number of hours. It was fun, of course, and we can only apologise that it's taken us a little while to plan the next instalment. But still, let's do this. Mario Kart 8 arrives on 30th May and we intend to...

    It's baaaaaaaack!!!

    There was a time, in early 2013, when team NL had a conversation that went like this... "Right, time for another Mario Kart 7 community night, right?" "Maybe we should see if any Wii U games have online community features." "Erm, Call of Duty?" "Nah, let's look into it." Well, we've been 'looking into it' — which means...

    It's been too long, so much so that we may need to renew our licenses, but it's time to take to the track for some Nintendo Life community races in Mario Kart 7. We all like to think we're the next Sebastian Vettel with a red shell in hand, so now we have to prove it. Yesterday we asked you which rules you want in both our both...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 Community Rooms - Choose The Rules

    It's back

    Last year we had a couple of rather fun community sessions playing Mario Kart 7, where the Nintendo Life community did battle with each other and some of the humble writing team. They were blood-baths of shell and banana skin-related tumbles, while tears were shed along with some choice curse words as podium places were lost. It was...


  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo Life - Today! Again!

    Race or battle, you choose

    This week's been dominated by Wii U, with plenty of news, footage and excitement for Nintendo gamers. After all of the hype we need to relax, kick back, and go shell-crazy in Mario Kart 7, of course. We want to do this with you, so today is the second Nintendo Life Mario Kart 7 Community Event; this time, it's serious...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 Community Rooms - You Decide

    Let's go round again

    A week ago we hosted a Mario Kart 7 community event, where you joined us for some shell throwing, banana dodging mayhem. The community room we used expanded from four players to over 180 by the end of the night, and we loved racing against you all and chatting in the comments and on our Twitter page. Naturally, this isn't going...

    Once upon a time Nintendo Life set up Communities in Mario Kart 7, and these rooms were full of happy 3DS owners enjoying some online races. The passage of time was cruel, however, and the official community room became almost empty, with just a few stalwarts keeping it going and some keen racers meeting up via the forums. We've...
