Koopa Kart Wii Logo.png

Koopa Kart Wii is the sixth installment in the Koopa Kart series and the third installment to be made by HammerBro101 Incorporated. It was released on June 10, 2010 for Japan, June 11, 2010 for Europe, June 24, 2010 for Australia, and June 27, 2010 for America. As with Koopa Kart DS, it previously used Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, but as of May 19, 2014, it now uses HammerBro101 Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. This is the second Koopa Kart game to have online play, the first being Koopa Kart DS. Unlike the previous Koopa Kart games, Koopa Kart Wii has sixteen racers on each course instead of twelve.

Items

Koopa Kart Wii introduces three new items: the POW Block, Mega Mushroom, and Lightning Cloud, which are replaced by the Gold POW Block, Super Mega Mushroom, and Lakithunder Cloud as of Koopa Kart 7.

Item Description Placements
POW Block Artwork - Mario Kart Wii.png

POW Block (New Item)

The POW Block from the Mario series is a brand new Koopa Kart item in Koopa Kart Wii! Activate it, and you will send a soundwave to everyone in front of you that will spin them thrice and make them drop their items after just under five seconds. You can avoid this dangerous item if you're airborne, and starting a wheelie will allow you to weaken the effect to a single spin. The POW Block will soon be dropped from the next installment and replaced with a upgraded variant. 7th-12th

Lightning Cloud (New Item)

New to Koopa Kart Wii, the Lightning Cloud gives you a speed boost, but if you hold onto it for ten seconds, you will shrink down and lose all of your speed. To get rid of this thing, you'll need to bump into another racer. Don't get used to this item, because you will say goodbye to the Lightning Cloud once the next installment comes to replace this item with a different variant. 4th-9th

Vehicles

There are thirty-six vehicles to choose from in Koopa Kart Wii. The vehicles are divided between three size classes, making twelve available to each character, six of which are available from the start for each size class (making the other eighteen vehicles unlockable). Each vehicle has eight stats: Speed, Weight, Acceleration, Handling, Drift, Off-Road, Mini-Turbo, and Items.

  • Speed: How fast the vehicle is at its top speed. With a higher speed stat, the vehicle will go faster. Directly correlated with the Items stat and negatively correlated with acceleration.
  • Weight: How heavy the vehicle is. With a high weight stat, heavy vehicles can push around light vehicles by ramming them. This stat also affects the angle at which vehicles jump, with heavier vehicles jumping at a lower angle. Finally, heavier vehicles bounce less upon landing.
  • Acceleration: How quickly the vehicle reaches its top speed from a non-moving position. Negatively correlated with speed.
  • Handling: How tight the vehicle is normally able to turn. Usually opposes drift and/or speed.
  • Drift: How tight the vehicle is able to turn while drifting. Usually opposes handling and opposes off-road.
  • Off-Road: How much speed the vehicle retains when it goes off-road. A low off-road stat will cause a near standstill for the vehicle. Similarly, a high off-road stat will cause the vehicle to slide less on ice. Opposes the drift stat. Vehicles with an off-road stat of 40 or higher can drift off-road.
  • Mini-Turbo: How long a mini-turbo will last.
  • Items: The likelihood of getting powerful items. A higher items stat makes the vehicle more likely to get powerful items. Directly correlated with the speed stat.
