Rocket Around the Curves

Wii U was made to kart! Try different controller combinations to compete with local or online* rivals on the big screen. Driving up a waterfall or across the ceiling can provide an intense adrenaline rush, but that's not all anti-gravity is good for. It also provides a wild new gameplay mechanic: if you collide into other racers in zero-g, you'll earn speed boosts worth bragging about.

Track Features

When the wheels flip up the glowing anti-gravity kicks in, letting you drive along walls and ceilings. The rules of the road also change when you're in anti-gravity mode: bump into opponents for speed boosts. Soar through the air with your choice of glider. Take the plunge and bring the race into the bubbly depths of underwater caverns.

Balloon Battle

Get ready for pop-or-be-popped action on the following courses as you compete to burst balloons attached to other players' karts.

Victory is only an Item Away

Grab awesome items on the fly to turn the tables on opponents.

Build the Best Vehicle

Combine a chassis, tires, and a glider to create a dream machine that suits your driving style and a character's stats. New Vehicle: ATV. Not a kart or a motorcycle, but something in-between: a 4-wheeled, all-terrain vehicle with unique handling.

Driving up a waterfall or across the ceiling can provide an intense adrenaline rush, but that's not all anti-gravity is good for. It also provides a wild new gameplay mechanic: if you collide into other racers in zero-g, you'll earn speed boosts worth bragging about. Luckily, you can upload and share your best moments and watch your friends' using the all-new Mario Kart TV.* Returning features include 12-player online play*, gliders, underwater racing, motorbikes, and custom karts. You can even race as Bowser's seven minions, the Koopalings!

Bought a used copy, but disc was damaged in some way and would not read, so it had to be returned.

The pre-owned one they sent me didn't work. I submitted a request on the website and they didn't respond at all. Maybe it was the after- Christmas rush. That said, I would check it as soon as you get it because the one we purchased didn't work at all. We also purchased another game at the same time and it did work. Bummer that the customer service was so bad.

Bought this pre-owned for my son for my Xmas and system just errors out when trying to load. Looks like there's a hairline fracture through half of the disc. When I try to start a return, the system says it's an unrecognized order number, so I can't even return it.

I wanted to save money so I decide to get a pre-owned game, it was cheap. I waited so long for the shipping process and when I put the disc in my Wii U, it didn’t move past the intro screen. The screen froze even though I took out the game. Definitely would not recommend. I don’t understand why they would sell a game that doesn’t even work!
