mechanics and trivia

  • warpstar segments are segments where your kart's wheels turn into tiny warpstars and float in midair! there are little machines that keep the racers fron going out of bounds
  • glide is preety self explanitory it's the glide thing from mariokart
  • metal kirby's name comes from a copy abillity from kirby squeak squad called the metal abillity
  • the bomb, sword, and cutter abillitys are from kirby air ride
  • kirby is a lightweight, while metal kirby is a heavyweight, and shadow kirby is a mediumweight so is it nice to see kirby in all whegt groups
  • like in mariokart double dash and wii the characters are not in their karts
