Product Description

Customise your vehicles with accessories to give you a competitive advantage
Customise your vehicles with accessories to give you a competitive advantage.

Play Mario Kart 7 and take the racing experience to new heights as you soar through the sky, dive underwater on the Nintendo 2DS, and also enjoy Mario Kart in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL.

There are a range of game modes to try in solo mode, like Grand Prix and Battle Mode, but you can also play with friends or connect to the web to race up to eight people anywhere in the world. With eight cups in which to compete and 32 courses in total (including 16 you'll see for the first time in Mario Kart 7), there is lots to enjoy. There are even time trials to help you hone your skills – just pick a course, set the best time you can, and race against 'ghost karts' saved from previous record laps.

Players can compete in local or online multiplayer matches against their friends

When it comes to choosing characters to represent you on the road, you'll find all your favourite classic drivers to pick from, and you can also let your very own Mii get behind the wheel! There are new characters to enjoy in Mario Kart 7 too, including Lakitu (the lightweight Koopa who usually counts down the start of the race) and Metal Mario, who is just as heavy as his appearance suggests, though his top speed is still incredibly impressive. Elsewhere, don't be fooled by the elegant Honey Queen, as she can hold her own on the track and won't be nudged off the track so easily!

For those looking to battle others, Balloon Battle is a great way to play. Take on other characters and aim to burst all their balloons using items – the one who breaks the most within the time limit will take the top spot. In Coin Battle, the focus is much more on what you can collect – just choose a stage and grab as many coins as possible to emerge victorious. For multiplayer modes, you'll need to buy or download Mario Kart 7, but only one game card will be required for up to eight Nintendo 3DS users to join in the fun. However, players without a game card will automatically have Shy Guy as their selected character.

Race as your favourite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, or as your Mii
Race as your favourite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, or as your Mii.

Not only can you race registered friends, but you can also take on previous opponents and others you have met through StreetPass. You can set the rules of play and exchange data with other StreetPass and SpotPass opponents, exchange Mii characters automatically, and save things like player names, ghost data, and other community information.

Key features of the game:
  • New kart abilities add to the wild fun for which the games are known. On big jumps, a kart deploys a wing to let it glide over a track shortcut. When underwater, a propeller pops out to help the kart cruise across the sea floor.
  • Players can show their own style by customising their vehicles with accessories that give them a competitive advantage. For instance, giant tyres help a kart drive off-road, while smaller tires work best on city courses.
  • Choose to race as your favourite Mushroom Kingdom characters, or even as your Mii character.
  • New courses take players on wild rides over a mountain road, on city streets, and through a dusty desert. Nintendo fans will recognise new courses on Wuhu Island and in the jungles from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
  • The game supports both SpotPass and StreetPass features.
  • Players can compete in local wireless matches or online over a broadband internet connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars 250+ Hours and still playing! 3 April 2012
By Ollie
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, okay... I'm a a huge Mario Kart fan! Give me a break! But I'm here to discuss the features of this slick racing game with you.

SINGLE PLAYER MODE

Grand Prix - Race in various cups, consisting of four different courses. There are 8 cups in total which means (if you do the maths) there are 32 tracks in total to play. The good thing about Grand Prix is that it's basically a tournament, competing in an attempt to grasp that 1st place position with that grand total of 40 points (10 for each win) we all crave so much!

Time Trials - Choose your best Kart, Wheel and Glider combination to perform a record-breaking 3-lap wonder which you can share with your friends via Streetpass and Online rivals via Spotpass. This is also a brilliant way to master those courses that you always seem to crumble on in Online races against those dreaded Japanese racers!

Balloon Battle - This was first introduced on Mario Kart 64, I believe. The aim of balloon battle is to hit your opponents with as many items as possible. Each item which successfully hits your opponent will remove a balloon from their collection of three. Your only opponents available in single player are the CPU players.

Coin Battle - Collect as many coins as possible and protect yourself from enemy attacks but also sneakily fire items at your opponents to steal their coins. Once they're hit, coins will jump out of their kart (given that they have some)

LOCAL MULTIPLAYER

Local multiplayer is available for 2-8 players simultaneously. From this mode you select 'Create a Group' and wait for your friends to join your group. Once your friends have arrived, you're ready to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saviour to the 3DS! 3 Dec 2011
By Gregory
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had the 3DS since release and after much waiting, have finally received this game! Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land have brought the 3DS to life instead of those not so good 3rd party games.

Mario Kart 7 is an AMAZING game, it's bright, vibrant and will have your mouth wide open when you race on your first course. The graphics aren't as good as the Wii's but the 3DS produces quality lighting and shading effects which make it look much better than on Mario Kart Wii.

The glider is a nice way to cruise through the course and you'll feel like a fan boy remembering all the GameCube, Wii, N64 and SNES courses. The music on this game is also very appealing, has me turning my volume way up.

With every game like this though, I believe that playing with other people (friends and online) is what pushes the game to it's peak. With a Mario game you never know when a blue shell will come and hit you right at the finish line or a lightning bolt striking you down from your glider at the worst possible moment and this adds to the excitement... As well as frustration when you know victory was in your almighty grasp!

The only downside I'd say is that there's a lack of characters. I'd of loved to see the baby characters, Dry Bones, Toadette, Diddy Kong etc. But it makes up for it in a sense with new characters and your own Mii Character which looks far better than the Mii racer on Mario Kart Wii, so treat yourself, siblings or children for Christmas.

Get gliding, diving and screaming; enjoy all the courses, new and old, but for those that fear Rainbow Road beware, there are two Rainbow Roads in this game - MWUHAHAHAHA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario Kart 7 is awesome. 10 Feb 2012
By Thomas

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not only does Mario Kart 7 stay true to form with it's awesome gameplay, it innovates with new kart design, new terrain and a new way to play. The 3D adds to the game using minimal but effective use of 3D, creating awesome atmosphere and depth. A must have for 3DS owners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Late comer to Mario Kart 19 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first of the Mario Kart games that I have ever played, and I'm beginning to wonder why it's taken me this long! The controls and objectives of the game are very simple so it is easy to pick up and get straight into. Even for a complete beginner like myself!

The 3D effects are wonderful and the colours very rich and bright.

So far I've competed in lots of Grand Prix's, updated my Go Kart and completed in a couple of online races...of which I came firmly last!

All in all one of the best games I've played on the 3DS, or any console for that fact! Due to it being very fun and easy to get into it will be one of those games I always come back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Mario Kart Yet! 13 Jan 2012
By CowMoo
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game really does all the other Mario Kart games justice, and the 3D function works really well and looks lovely! Although one downside is that when using the gyro feature it makes 3D gameplay quite hard to see as you need to be straight on, but that's really nothing at all as the 3D feature can easily be switched off!

The new levels stick to the typical Mario Karts style, there are also some new weapons along with the old ones.

The online feature is also great to race other people!

I would advise anybody to also buy the 3DS wheel to use with this game Mario Kart 7 Wheel (Nintendo 3DS)

All in all another great game from nintendo!
