The video introduces brand new and revamped courses including Sweet, Sweet Canyon, Rainbow Road, and Toad's Turnpike and new characters like Lemmy, one of Bowser's kids from Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World. The game will also have new Boomerang and Piranha Plant items.
The levels include "anti-gravity" race tracks that allow players to race along walls and even upside-down. Players can share their races with friends via the Mario Kart TV feature and Miiverse and challenge players worldwide by racing online.
