Posted on 13. Sep, 2011 by in Blog

Yippee! Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS will hit stores on December 4.

The loveable cast of characters is back in the newest installment of the Mario Kart series.

Join Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi as they zoom through race courses, dodging obstacles and vying for the coveted Number 1 spot!

The latest version draws from the traditional Mario Kart game series, but does introduce some exciting new game play features.

One of these includes a hang glider attachment which allows players to drive off ramps and fly through the air in order to clear across obstacles or take alternate paths throughout the course.

Another new feature is the ability to customize a character’s kart, such as changing its tires which affects its handling on certain surfaces. Driving underwater adds a propeller to the kart, offering a different style of handling.

A feature unique to the 3DS is the ability to play the game in first-person mode using the gyro sensor.

So, in the words of the Mario–”Here we go!”
