Mario Kart: Double Returns!!!, or sometimes shortened to Mario Kart 9, is a Mario Kart game for the Wii U, releasing in late 2016.

It works like Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, but with the new features in later Mario Kart games, with the exception of bikes. It also adds the new feature of using PORTALS to teleport people to even more distant places than with a Glider Ramp. It also includes the other new feature of Bonus Cups. There is also no Mirror Mode. It is replaced with 200cc, and there is also the new feature of having the karts turning into BOATS to help them cross lava pools or poison lakes, or deep water and any type of dangerous lake. Boats are also bouncy, so try not to bang into anyone or anything or you will lose control. Also, if you do any sharp turns of any kind on your boat, your boat will tip over, and you will fall off, needing Lakitu to drag them back onto their boat. Try to keep steady when doing turns on a boat. The boat ramp is yellow-orange with triangles. Also, there there is the "new feature" (Quotations because beta in Mario Kart 8) of having a drill, similar to the one in Super Mario Galaxy 2, which will have them dig underground to get to other places. They can also drive upside-down with the drill, but that might not be a good idea. The drill ramp is light brown with squares. The last new addition is the rocket, which lets you go farther than the glider and lets you land anytime! The rocket ramp is black with stars.

I will add the pictures later. It would help if someone tells me how to post pictures because I am a newer user.

I will also add the items, modes and kart parts later.

There are 84 playable characters.
