Mario Kart Infinity Remix

Mario Kart: Infinity Remix is a racing game developed by Crash Co. and published by Nintendo, released for the Nintendo Switch. It is the ninth main installment of the Mario Kart series, and the second to be released for the Nintendo Switch, following Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, where it borrows a lot of assets from.

Unlike previous installments, Infinity Remix doesn't introduce elements that affect the layout of courses, although gliding, underwater, and anti-gravity sections do return. Instead, the game focuses on introducing new modes that flip the Mario Kart formula on its head, labeled as Remix Modes, making for new and engaging experiences for veterans of the series. Additionally, Battle Mode returns from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, as does Mission Mode from Mario Kart DS.

Gameplay

The gameplay maintains the traditional elements of previous Mario Kart games, specifically from Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Players pick characters and vehicles of varying stats, strengths, and weaknesses, and race against each other in obstacle course-like race tracks to finish first of 15 racers. During the race, players can pick up Item Boxes to either help themselves or hinder other racers.

Infinity Remix brings back several elements from previous games. Notably, the gliding, underwater, and anti-gravity sections introduced in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 return, functioning identically to their previous appearances. Coins can be collected along the track to increase one's overall top speed, and like Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Super Circuit, there is no cap to the total of Coins that can be collected. Kart customization, introduced in Mario Kart 7, also returns, with players being able to customize bodies, tires, and gliders to make their own vehicle. Kart, Bike, Sport Bike, and ATV bodies return from Mario Kart 8, and a new body type is introduced; Team bodies that allow players to use two characters in a similar manner to Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. Lastly, auto-accelerate and smart-steering return from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a new feature can also be toggled on and off; a reticle that helps with aiming items like Green Shells and Bob-ombs.

Point distribution is handled similarly to Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, in that every racer will get at least a point when they finish a race.

Game Modes

Remix Modes

While Infinity Remix doesn't introduce any mechanics that change how the game functions, several new modes have been introduced that turn the standard Mario Kart formula on its head, called Remix Modes. Most of these modes can be toggled on and off, and are to provide fun and new experiences for players.

Remix Mode Description
Mirror Mode Though previously an engine class, Mirror Mode has been made into a Remix Mode that can be played in all engine classes. In this mode, tracks are mirrored, making players take opposite turns to what they normally would.
Reverse Mode Reverse Mode is similar in concept to Mirror Mode, but instead of the tracks being merely mirrored, players are forced to race in the opposite direction. Unique for this mode, tracks that normally couldn't be played in Reverse Mode have had their layouts altered, such as adding ramps or moving cannons that launch players. Like Mirror Mode, it can be played on any of the engine classes.
Item Rain Item Rain disables all Item Boxes around the track. Instead, items will randomly fall from the sky. This can include harmful items like Green Shells, Banana Peels, and Fake Item Boxes, as well as helpful ones like Mushrooms and Stars. Additionally, items that normally wouldn't be on the track like Mega Mushrooms, Lightning, and Bullet Bills can also be found around the track. Players will need to snag these items before anyone else to keep the lead.
Item Roulette Item Roulette is similar to item selection in the Mario Kart Arcade GP series; in each race, the players can use a selection of three randomized items. These are the only items that can be collected from Item Boxes. Typically, an item that is thrown, an item that is placed behind, and a powerful item will always be provided. This can also be combined with Item Rain, where the three items will be the only items that appear.
Countdown Countdown is unique in that instead of players competing against each other to finish three laps, a time limit is given and players need to race as many laps as possible. While default times are set for all courses, the time limit can be customized by the player.
Elimination Elimination doesn't have players competing for 15 laps instead of the normal count. However, every time a lap is finished, the player to cross the finish line last is eliminated. This continues until there is one player standing, who wins. For tracks with sections instead of laps, the sections are used instead.
Relay Relay involves players using up to three different character and vehicle combinations at once. Every time a lap is finished, the player switches to the next character in the rotation. Uniquely, this mode has flags on the vehicles, representing the player's team.

Grand Prix

Grand Prix in Infinity Remix works similar to previous installments, particularly Mario Kart 8. Players can select from 50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and 200cc engine classes, all of which are available by default. Players choose a cup, which takes them through four consecutive races in a set order. The points players earned for each race are tallied up, and depending on their placement, they can receive a trophy at the end.

Rankings are similar to Mario Kart 8, where they are judged purely by the player's position in each race. All 1st place finishes will give the player a three-star rank, a 2nd place finish will give the player a two-star rank, two 2nd place finishes or one 3rd place finish will give the player a one-star rank, and so on. Also like Mario Kart 8, up to four players can play at once.

Time Trials

Time Trials lets the player complete a course with the fastest time possible. They are provided with Triple Mushrooms at the start of every attempt, allowing them to take shortcuts and save time. Players can also race ghosts, weather it be Staff Ghosts or ghosts created by players around the world. Times can be set and ghosts can be created on either the 150cc or 200cc engine classes; there are Staff Ghosts on every course for both.

A new feature to Time Trials allows players to race against up to five different ghosts at once.

VS

VS mode can be played locally with up to four players. Compared to previous games, Infinity Remix allows the most customization of any game thus far. Similar to the Super Smash Bros. series, individual items can be turned on and off. Players can additionally race individually or in teams, choose what courses appear, play them randomly, or play them in order, and set how many CPU characters there are.

Battle

Battle Mode can be played locally with up to four players. It is most similar to its iteration in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and like that game, several different modes are available. The player in the lead will wear a crown on their head, and almost every mode can be played in a free-for-all or a team setting. As with VS mode, individual items can be turned on and off. Unlike other modes, the maximum amount of players in Battle Mode is 12 like in previous games in order to keep the teams even.

Remix Mode Description
Baloon
Balloon Battle
The classic mode where players use items to pop the opponents' balloons, with everyone starting with five. Balloon Battle is similar to its iterations pre-Mario Kart Wii where players are eliminated should all their balloons be popped. In free-for-all, the last player standing wins, and in teams, the last team standing wins.
Baloon2
Balloon Brawl
Balloon Brawl is a new mode similar to Balloon Battle, though uses the score-based system that Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe use. Every time a player pops another's balloon, they will receive a point, though the player losing all of their balloons will make them lose a point. Should all of a player's balloons be popped, they will respawn with all of their balloons regenerated. In free-for-all, the player with the most points wins, and in teams, the points are tallied and the team with the most collective points wins.
CoinMK8
Coin Runners
In Coin Runners, players must collect Coins scattered around the course in order to have the most by the end of the game. If a player is hit by an item, half of their Coins will scatter, allowing other players to get them. In free-for-all, the player with the most Coins wins, and in teams, the Coin counts are tallied up and the team with the most collective Coins wins.
Bobomb - MarioPartyStarRush
Bob-omb Blast
In Bob-omb Blast, Bob-ombs are the only item that can be used. The mode plays similar to its Mario Kart: Double Dash!! iteration; players must use Bob-ombs to attack their opponents, with up to 10 being able to be stored, and successfully hitting one will give the player a star. However, they will lose a star if they get hit themselves. The first player to reach five stars will win. This mode cannot be played in teams.
Shine Sprites
Shine Thief
In Shine Thief, there is a single Shine Sprite that appears in the middle of the course, and all the players must race to collect it. The Shine Sprite will hover over a player that collects it, as a counter will count down from 60. When this counter reaches 0, the player will win. If they are hit by an item, the Shine Sprite will be dropped and the counter will stop, allowing another player to grab it. If the player collects the Shine Sprite again, the counter will resume from where it left off, though if they lose the Shine Sprite after the counter reaches 10, then it will restart from 10. In teams, the timer is changed to 120 instead, and any teammates that collect the Shine Sprite will start the counter. The first team that reaches 0 wins.
PottedPiranhaPlantMK8
Renegade Roundup
In Renegade Roundup, players are split into two teams, with half permanently using Potted Piranha Plants. In a cops-and-robbers style game, the players with the Potted Piranha Plants must use them to capture the other team and trap them in cages above the course. However, teammates can free captured allies by hitting key switches under the cages. If the team with the Potted Piranha Plants captures all of the other team, they will win, but if they can't before the timer runs out, the other team will win. This mode cannot be played in free-for-all.
Power Moon SMO
Moon Mayhem
Moon Mayhem is similar to the Shine Runners mode in Mario Kart DS. Nine Power Moons are scattered along the course, and the players must race to collect them. Should a player be hit, they will lose a Power Moon, and it will appear in a random location on the course for another player to grab. When the timer runs out, the player who has or the players that are tied with the least amount of Power Moons will be eliminated, and their Power Moons will scatter. In free-for-all, this continues until one player remains, and in teams, this continues until all of one team is eliminated.
Magic Paintbrush
Turbo Turf War
In Turbo Turf War, every player has a permanent Magic Paintbrush, though it acts different in that the paint it creates won't cause other players to spin out, and they can use items alongside it. The object of the game is to cover as much of the course in the player's paint as possible, with a color being associated with each player or team. It is possible to cover another player's paint, increasing their percentage of coverage while also decreasing their's. Once the timer runs out, the amount of paint on the course from each player is calculated. In free-for-all, the player with the most coverage wins, and in teams, the team with the most coverage wins.
BombBoo MKS
Bomb Boo Blitz
In Bomb Boo Blitz, two random players will have Bomb Boos hovering over them. In a hot potato-style battle, these players must either bump into other players or hit them with items to pass the Bomb Boo over. Every 20 seconds, the Bomb Boos will explode, eliminating the players with them. Two more Bomb Boos will appear over other players, chosen at random. When two players remain, only one Bomb Boo will appear, and the last player standing wins. This mode cannot be played in teams.
ItemBoxMK8
Item Smugglers
In Item Smugglers, the object of the game is to run into Item Boxes and collect items. Any items can be stored in an inventory unique to this mode, and can be used at any time. Any item obtained is a point, though players can also earn points by hitting other players with their items. This is risky, as the player will lose a point if they miss, but in addition to stealing a player's item if they hit one, the used item will return to the inventory, resulting in no points lost. In free-for-all, the player with the most points by the end of the match wins, and in teams, the team with the most points wins.

Unlock Criteria

Like Mario Kart 8, all characters are unlocked randomly by getting gold trophies in Grand Prix in any cup and engine class. However, characters cannot be unlocked if a cup already has a gold trophy. Unlike Mario Kart 8 however, characters that are not unlocked cannot appear as CPU drivers.

Alternate Costumes for characters are unlocked by getting a gold trophy in Grand Prix on any cup and engine class as their respective character. In the case of characters with multiple alternate costumes like Yoshi, all of their alternate costumes are unlocked at once.

Stats

Although karts can be customized, the character selected has base stats that the vehicle parts' stats act off of. There are six categories that characters can perform in:

  • Speed: The top speed of the character.
  • Acceleration: The rate of speed increase while holding the accelerate button.
  • Weight: The weight of the character. Characters with higher weight knock away characters with lower weight.
  • Handling: The turning and drifting ability of the character. Characters with higher drift will take turns sharper.
  • Traction: The top speed of the character when in off-road.
  • Mini-Turbo: The amount of speed gained from a Mini-Turbo.

Vehicle Parts

As in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8, players can customize their own vehicle using different bodies, tires, and gliders. Some parts can change colors for all characters or a specific group of characters. A list of these colorations can be found here.

Each part will either add or subtract stats from a character's base stats. The lowest a stat can go is 0.1; should a character and kart combination bring a stat below that number, it will still remain at 0.1.

While in previous games, vehicle parts were unlocked randomly by collecting Coins, parts can now be bought at Toadsworth's shop. Only some of the vehicles are available for purchase at the start of the game, though more will become available the more the game is played. In particular, the Gold Standard Kart, Gold Tires, and Gold Glider will always be the last parts to be available in stock; every other part is randomized in terms of availability. Only the Standard Kart, Standard Bike, Standard ATV, Standard Double, Standard Tires, and Super Glider are available frm the start.

Bodies

There are five types of bodies; Kart, Bike and Sport Bike (outside and inside drift respectively), ATV, and Double.

B Dasher

The B Dasher was built with speed in mind. It's thin, long model allows it to slip by other racers on the track and leave them in the dust! It's not so hot on the other stats though.
InfinityRemixPart Flame Flyer
Flame Flyer
+1.5 -2 +1.5 -0.5 -2 +2
Heavyweight drivers (and those who love them, you know who you are) are a special breed. This muscle car boasts high speed, weight, and mini-turbo, allowing you to throw your weight around as you cruise through the track to victory!
InfinityRemixPart Koopa Clown
Koopa Clown
+0.5 -0.5 +0.5 -0.5 +1 +1
Bowser's beloved flying tank has been converted to a road machine! It's stats are pretty average overall, so you can mix and match with most other vehicle parts and always get a solid combination.
InfinityRemixPart Biddybuggy
Biddybuggy

Biddybuds are one of the cuter enemies in the Mushroom Kingdom, so it's only natural there would be a kart based on them! It doesn't alter your stats very much and works well with any combination. If you get a speed boost, the wings will flutter too!
InfinityRemixPart Rambi Rider
Rambi Rider
+1.5 -2 +2 -1.5 +2 -1
Rambi the Rhino is by far the strongest of the Kongs' animal friends. That big horn of his strikes fear into the hearts (and bones) of all Kremlings. With weight and traction being its best stats, this kart is a great fit for heavyweight racers like Donkey Kong.
InfinityRemixPart Expresso Express
Expresso Express
+2 -2 -2 +2 0 0
The Expresso Express probably wasn't meant to soar like its namesake, though it's top speed is top of the line! It also controls pretty well too, a stark contrast from most other fast vehicles. That said, it's weight is pretty low and you can get pushed around easier.
Bike Bodies
InfinityRemixPart Habanero Caballero
Habanero Caballero

Hot peppers and bikes go together as good as hot sauce on potato chips, but the Habanero Caballero is a nice, sturdy vehicle. It's a balanced vehicle all around, with speed and acceleration being the highlight.
InfinityRemixPart Potassium Peddler
Potassium Peddler
0 +0.5 +2 -0.5 -2 0
Bananas are a pretty common sight in Mario Kart, so it's a mystery how there hasn't been a vehicle based on them yet. Well thankfully, the Potassium Peddler is here! Its best strengths are weight and acceleration. If you get hit by an item, it'll bruise, but don't worry, it won't actually damage your bike!
InfinityRemixPart Squawks Scooter
Squawks Scooter
-1 +1.5 -1 +1.5 0 0
Everyone likes Squawks, right? The Squawks Scooter offers great control as its best selling point, providing good handling on those sharp turns. Acceleration isn't half bad either.

Enguarde the Swordfish may not be able to race around the track, but he's still here in spirit as the Enguarde Engine! With high speed and decent handling, you can rip through the track, just like you're riding him!
InfinityRemixPart Tearaway Torpedo
Tearaway Torpedo
+2 -2 -1 0 0 +1.5
This little thing may not look much like a bike, but the name "Tearaway Torpedo" really suits this vehicle well! Just like you're ripping through the sea, you'll be in first place in no time with its high speed stat! It's got pretty low acceleration and weight though, so be careful.
ATV Bodies
InfinityRemixPart Winky Wagon
Winky Wagon
0 0 -0.5 0 +1.5 +2
The Kong family has had a ton of animal friends, from rhinos, to birds, to reptiles, and even a frog! You probably won't be taking to the skies with the Winky Wagon, but with great traction and even better mini-turbo, this ATV can handle any terrain.
Double Bodies
InfinityRemixPart Bullet Blaster
Bullet Blaster
+1.5 -2 -1 -1 +1.5 +1.5
Bullet Bills are known for racing through the air at high speeds, and with this kart's high speed, mini-turbo, and traction, you don't even need the item to tear your way through the course!

Who needs gliders when you can take to the skies with a rocket? In addition to taking you through the air with a speedy engine, it also adds a bit of weight and speed to your vehicle. But that added weight does make off-road driving and turning harder.

Items

Every item, with the exception of the Crazy 8, from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe returns, along with several more items that were either featured in previous games, including the Mario Kart Arcade GP installments, and new items altogether. Items can be earned by driving through Item Boxes like in previous games, granting them a random item depending on their placement in the race. Weaker items such as Bananas and Green Shells are given to players in the higher positions, while powerful items such as Stars, Spiny Shells, and Bullet Bills are given to players in the lower positions.

Courses

The game has 80 courses total, split among 20 cups, with four courses in each. The Mushroom, Flower, Turnip, Egg, Feather, Cherry, Acorn, Shine, Star, and Special Cups consist of brand-new courses while the Shell, Banana, Leaf, Coin, Bell, Boomerang, Horn, Heart, Lightning, and Moon Cups consist of returning courses from previous games, all remastered to fit the additions of gliding, underwater, and anti-gravity sections.

Of particular note, the retro courses don't focus on bringing back tracks that have not been reintroduced, and instead focuses on bringing back the best and most interesting courses throughout the series, regardless if they have returned previously or not. Of the 40 retro courses, there are five from each game.

Players start outside the hotel before driving into it. Fountains can be found inside, which can be used as ramps. Players ride a spiral ramp to the hotel's roof, where they can either drive around a pool or drive through it. A ramp can also be taken to drive on a raft floating on it. Players then take a decline down to the starting line.
InfinityRemixCourse Cat Playground Cat Playground is the third course of the Mushroom Cup. It takes place in a nursery-like building, with the interior themed after Super Bell Hill in Super Mario 3D World. 8-bit sprites of Cat Mario and Cat Peach can also be found. The layout is relatively simple, and outside of a few Cat Goombas, there aren't many obstacles. However, near the end of the course, players will drive along a wall in an anti-gravity section.
InfinityRemixCourse Koopa Rapids Koopa Rapids is the final course of the Mushroom Cup. Bearing resemblance to the Lost Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey, the entire course takes place around a looping river of rushing water. Driving through the water can allow players to go faster, but there are walls and they will eventually need to go back above ground. Giant Koopa Troopa shells can also be found, containing Item Boxes inside them. Koopa Troopas from outside the track can occasionally throw Green Shells on the track, which function identically to their item counterparts.

Flower Cup
InfinityRemixCourse Metro Blvd. Metro Blvd. is the first course of the Flower Cup, and aptly based off of the Metro Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. The course takes place on various streets, where cars and trucks drive around. At a few points, players also drive on the walls of buildings in anti-gravity sections. Players also drive on girders hanging over the edge of the city. Sometimes these girders move, making them more difficult to drive on.
InfinityRemixCourse Yoshi's Island Yoshi's Island is the second course of the Flower Cup. It is a sectioned-track, with the entire course being a single loop around Yoshi's Island. The course starts off on the beach, where Sidesteppers crawl around. Piers can also be driven off of on the shore, and have ramps players can perform tricks on. The second section takes place in a jungle, with Piranha Plants populating it. Finally, a cannon shoots the players into the third section of the track, riding down a mountain with even more Piranha Plants. The track loops back to the beach.
InfinityRemixCourse Northern Peaks Northern Peaks is the third course of the Flower Cup. It takes place between two large, snowy mountains, and resembles Frosted Glacier from New Super Mario Bros. U. Penguins populate the track, and will slide around. Most of the course is also slippery, making it difficult to turn. Notably, the it will begin snowing during the second lap, and by the third lap, the track will be under a blizzard.
InfinityRemixCourse Wario's Castle Wario's Castle is the final course of the Flower Cup, and is set in Wario's castle, where he stores all of his treasure. Piles of gold can be driven off of to perform tricks, and golden Chain Chomps can also be found inside.

InfinityRemixCourse Sunset Savannah Sunset Savannah is the second course of the Turnip Cup, and takes place in a savannah during sunset. In addition to avoiding Tiki Goons on the track, players also drive through underwater sections in a river. After each lap, the course will progressively get darker and darker as the sun sets in the background. The characters also have unique lighting where their most prominent color will glow similar to the sunset levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The road is also illuminated.
InfinityRemixCourse Sarasaland Circuit Sarasaland Circuit is the third course of the Turnip Cup, taking place in Daisy's kingdom, Sarasaland. It is a three-sectioned course, starting right outside of Daisy's Arabian-themed castle. Players drive through the Birabuto Kingdom while dodging fireballs spit by Gao. The second section takes place in the Chai Kingdom along a massive stone wall. There are ramps to perform tricks off of, though it is easy to fall off. Roketons will also fly overhead and shoot bullets at the track. The third section is set in the Muda Kingdom; after a gliding ramp, the players drive underwater, where they must dodge Yurarins floating through the water. After reaching shore, the players drive through Daisy's castle and over the finish line.
InfinityRemixCourse Underworld Mines Underworld Mines is the final course of the Turnip Cup, set in the depths of the Underworld. The course is simple, with Rocky Wrenches being the only obstacles. Underworlders can also be seen in the background, mining crystals of various colors. The road is constructed out of crystal, and players drive around large chunks of it. Some can even be driven off of to perform tricks.
YoshiEggNSMBW
Egg Cup
InfinityRemixCourse Rubee Factory Rubee Factory is the first course of the Egg Cup. Taking place inside Merlee's Mansion, now owned by Mimi and turned into a factory, players will drive through various rooms, where slaves are hitting blocks to make Rubees. Conveyor belts with Rubees can be found, which will either speed up or slow down players depending on what direction they are moving in. Near the end of the lap, players will drive through the basement, now serving as a vault for created Rubees.
InfinityRemixCourse Tar Pit Plateau Tar Pit Plateau is the second course of the Egg Cup. The course layout is rather jagged, making some turns difficult. Bony Beetles and Bone Piranha Plants serve as obstacles, while Dry Bones stand in the background. Unique to the track are pools of tar along the track; if players drive over them, their tires will become covered in tar, slowing them down and making it more difficult to turn for a short time. The course resembles the Cliff levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns.
InfinityRemixCourse Hammer Bro. Dojo Hammer Bro. Dojo is the third course of the Egg Cup. Themed after Bowser's Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey, Hammer Bros. of various types fight each other outside of the track. Some types, such as Sledge Bros. and Sumo Bros., will serve as obstacles and aim for the players. There are also two big gliding sections where Amazing Flyin' Hammer Bros. will try to get in the way.
InfinityRemixCourse Kamek's Library Kamek's Library is the final course of the Egg Cup. The entire course is set in a ghost house-esque location, where Boos and Peepas will stand in the background. At some points, players will also drive along the walls in anti-gravity sections. The course is similar to Big Boo's Haunt in Super Mario 64, as Bookends, Killer Chairs, and a Mad Piano appear as obstacles. There are also shortcuts hidden behind walls, which can actually be driven through.
MK8 Deluxe Art - Cape Feather
Feather Cup
InfinityRemixCourse Throwback Plains Throwback Plains is the first course of the Feather Cup. It appears to take place in a simulated dome of sorts, recreating graphics reminiscent of Super Mario Bros. It is a three-sectioned course, which sees the players driving through an overworld in the first section, a cave in the second section, and finally a castle in the third section. Obstacles such as Goombas and Piranha Plants are 8-bit, but are otherwise identical in behavior to their appearances in other courses. Several hills similar to those in the background of Super Mario Bros. can be driven off of to perform tricks.
InfinityRemixCourse Last Resort Last Resort is the second course of the Feather Cup. The course takes place within the Last Resort from Luigi's Mansion 3; players start outside the hotel and drive into it. There are various floors the players will drive through, such as a theater-based floor and a pool floor with underwater sections, all of which are accessed through empty elevator shafts with anti-gravity sections. At the top of the hotel, players drive through a portal similar to the Paranormal Portal from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, taking them back to the start.
InfinityRemixCourse Black Hole Garden Black Hole Garden is the third course of the Feather Cup. The course takes place in deep space, with giant black holes surrounding the track. Cosmetta's Cosmic Lighthouse can also be seen in the background. The entire course is anti-gravity, and there are plenty of loops and twists throughout the course. Black holes will sometimes form on random parts of the course that can pull players in; should they fall in one, Lakitu will need to pull them out of it.
InfinityRemixCourse Megavitamin Lab Megavitamin Lab is the final course of the Feather Cup. Set inside a large factory with backgrounds resembling the Dr. Mario series, it is a relatively simple course with conveyor belts along the course that can either speed up or slow down players depending on what direction they are going in. Megavitamins can also fall from the sky in certain areas; though they can crush players they land on, they can also be driven off of like ramps to perform tricks. Viruses can also be found in the background, and destroyed by Megavitamins.
DoubleCherry
Cherry Cup
InfinityRemixCourse Cascade Falls Cascade Falls is the first course of the Cherry Cup, based heavily on both Dinosaur Land from Super Mario World and the Cascade Kingdom from Super Mario Odyssey. While Rexes can be found cheering from rocks off the track, a few T-Rexes appear as well, and can occasionally romp through the course to spin drivers out. Near the end of the lap is an underwater section, followed by driving down a massive waterfall.
InfinityRemixCourse Pipeline Central Pipeline Central is the second course of the Cherry Cup, and is very similar to 3DS Piranha Plant Slide from Mario Kart 7. The entire course takes place in a maze of Warp Pipes, many of which have water steams that allow drivers to go faster. All of the pipes also have anti-gravity sections within them, allowing drivers to race all around inside the pipe. Piranha Plants of various types can also appear as hazards, from regular ones that lunge at nearby players to bite to Fire Piranha Plants and Frost Piranhas that can burn and freeze players respectively.
InfinityRemixCourse Shipwreck Grotto Shipwreck Grotto is the third course of the Cherry Cup, heavily based on Pirate's Grotto from Paper Mario: The THousand-Year Door. The majority of the course takes place underwater, with Fish Bones swimming around that cause players to spin out when hit. Several shipwrecks are also driven through, many of which have ramps that can be tricked off of. In the background near the middle of the lap, Cortez can seen in his ship, the Black Skull.
InfinityRemixCourse The Ol' Switcheroo The Ol' Switcheroo is the final course of the Cherry Cup. Taking place inside a large factory, the course has multiple branching paths. Robots in the background will randomly hit ON/OFF Switches, which will move parts of the course to connect with other paths. The different paths vary greatly as well, such as having conveyor belts that either speed up or slow down drivers, an underwater section where spinning blades must be avoided, and mechanical mushroom platforms that can be bounced off of. While rare and dependent on how much the track switches, a golden path can be accessed that has a special Item Box that always grants a Star, as well as being a big shortcut.

Course Description
GreenShellMK8
Shell Cup
InfinityRemixCourse DS Figure-8 Circuit DS Figure-8 Circuit returns from Mario Kart DS as the first course in the Shell Cup. It has been graphically updated to resemble Mario Kart Stadium in Mario Kart 8, with Toad mechanics cheering from the sidelines. The layout itself is relatively unchanged, though the turns now have anti-gravity. The turns also have several boost pads on the outside of the road. The course is also blue and loops around itself like a möbius strip, making it resemble the "8" in Mario Kart 8's logo. On the final lap, the track begins flashing blue and pink, resembling the 8 in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's logo.
InfinityRemixCourse SNES Choco Island 1 SNES Choco Island 1 returns from Super Mario Kart as the second course in the Shell Cup. Like SNES Donut Plains 3 in Mario Kart 8, the course has seen a massive graphic overhaul to make it less flat. The course is sized up as well. Like the original, bumps on the road can be used as ramps and mud slows down players. Goombas are also found in the second half of the track.
InfinityRemixCourse GBA Riverside Park GBA Riverside Park returns from Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the third course in the Shell Cup. The course has seen heavy graphical overhauls, now being set in a savannah setting, resembling the Lost Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey.

Alternate routes can also be taken through the water in certain sections, which typically have Item Boxes.
InfinityRemixCourse U Thwomp Ruins U Thwomp Ruins returns from Mario Kart 8 as the final course in the Shell Cup. As the course was directly lifted from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, very little changes have been made. The sky is noticeably at sunset though, and more detail has been put into the stone structures, making them cracked and ancient. A volcano can also be seen in the background at the starting line, referencing Thwomp Volcano in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.
BananaMK8
Banana Cup
InfinityRemixCourse Wii Mushroom Gorge Wii Mushroom Gorge returns from Mario Kart Wii as the first course of the Banana Cup.

InfinityRemixCourse N64 Kalamari Desert N64 Kalamari Desert returns from Mario Kart 64 as the third course of the Banana Cup. The course overall has been given more life, with rocks and stone structures sticking out in the background. This, along with cheering Tostarenans and Jaxis, makes the course overall resemble Sand Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. The train still appears on the track, though it is now visibly conducted by a Tostarenan in a conductor's hat. The passengers, which are also Tostarenans, can also be seen through the cars' windows.
InfinityRemixCourse 3DS Shy Guy Bazaar 3DS Shy Guy Bazaar returns from Mario Kart 7 as the final course of the Banana Cup. While little to no changes were made to the course layout, it has seen some big renovations appearance-wise.

Super Leaf NSMB2
Leaf Cup
InfinityRemixCourse 3DS Wuhu Loop 3DS Wuhu Loop returns from Mario Kart 7 as the first course of the Leaf Cup. Like that game, it is a sectioned track, touring around Wuhu Island.

InfinityRemixCourse N64 Moo Moo Farm N64 Moo Moo Farm returns from Mario Kart 64 as the second course of the Leaf Cup. It has received pretty significant changes graphically; similar to Wii Moo Moo Meadows in Mario Kart 8, the course is now set at sunset, with a barn present in the background.

CoinMK8
Coin Cup

InfinityRemixCourse GCN Mushroom City GCN Mushroom City returns from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as the final course of the Coin Cup. The biggest change aesthetically is that the course is raining, though it hasn't gone through many changes in terms of layout. However, the pink road shortcut is now off-road, and requires a speed boost to get across.
SuperBellSM3DW
Bell Cup
InfinityRemixCourse U Dragon Driftway U Dragon Driftway returns from Mario Kart 8 as the first course of the Bell Cup. Visually, it has been revamped to be similar to Bowser's Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey, with more colorful clouds in the background and NPCs such as Pokios and Stairface Ogres standing in the background. In terms of layout however, it is pretty much identical.
InfinityRemixCourse 3DS Rock Rock Mountain 3DS Rock Rock Mountain returns from Mario Kart 7 as the second course of the Bell Cup. It has been given a visual overhaul, now resembling Rock-Candy Mines from New Super Mario Bros. U. The incline near the end of the lap has also been made into an anti-gravity section.

It has been given a massive visual upgrade compared to its original appearance, with colorful hills in the background, Toads and Yoshis sitting on blocks and cheering on the racers, and Piranha Plants rising in and out of the Warp Pipes, though they have no effect on gameplay and are purely aesthetic. Similar to GBA Mario Circuit in Mario Kart 8, the straightaways and u-turn in the middle of the lap are elevated, and are made into anti-gravity sections.
InfinityRemixCourse DS Airship Fortress DS Airship Fortress returns from Mario Kart DS as the final course of the Bell Cup. Aesthetically, the course is raining, and thunder is raging in the background. Several enemies such as Koopatrols, Dry Bones, Hammer Bros., and Magikoopas are also found in the background spectating the race. The spiral in the tower near the end of the lap is also made into an anti-gravity section.
BoomerangFlowerMK8
Boomerang Cup

InfinityRemixCourse GBA Sunset Wilds GBA Sunset Wilds returns from Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the second course of the Boomerang Cup. It has received a massive visual overhaul, now taking place at the bottom of a giant canyon similar to Wii Wario's Gold Mine or U Bone-Dry Dunes, and the course is more crooked as a result. The sun still sets periodically, causing the course to change colors from orange to purple, and Shy Guys with cowboy hats can be seen in the background, cheering the drivers on. The teepees with Spear Guys have been retained as well, and driving into one will make the Spear Guys angry and chase the player, throwing spears at them for a short time.
InfinityRemixCourse N64 Choco Mountain N64 Choco Mountain returns from Mario Kart 64 as the third course of the Boomerang Cup. It has been upgraded a lot visually to resemble a giant chocolate cake, with fudge running through it. The boulders have also been changed to giant chocolate chip cookies.

InfinityRemixCourse GCN DK Mountain GCN DK Mountain returns from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as the final course of the Boomerang Cup. The course's layout has changed a bit compared to other retro courses, as the Barrel Cannon at the beginning will shoot the players inside the volcano. While inside, the players must avoid lava geysers, as well as avoid not dropping into lava. They will exit the volcano near the second half of the course.
SuperHornMK8
Horn Cup
InfinityRemixCourse GBA Yoshi Desert GBA Yoshi Desert returns from Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the first course of the Horn Cup. Similar to how GBA Cheese Land was remade in Mario Kart 8, the course has been given a massive visual upgrade, with a less flat landscape and now being set at dusk. Several Yoshis from the background are also cheering. The Piranha Plants in the original version were replaced with Sandmaarghs, which travel underground and rise up to chomp on drivers nearby to spin them out.
InfinityRemixCourse 3DS Rosalina's Ice World 3DS Rosalina's Ice World returns from Mario Kart 7 as the second course of the Horn Cup. The layout hasn't changed too drastically, though the course is now similar to Frosted Glacier from New Super Mario Bros. U. It also takes design elements from the Comet Observatory in Super Mario Galaxy, with domes all around the course, as well as Lumas and Star Bunnies populating it as spectators.
InfinityRemixCourse DS Bowser Castle DS Bowser Castle returns from Mario Kart DS as the third course of the Horn Cup. It has been given a visual overhaul to resemble U Bowser's Castle, with a more detailed interior. Several enemies such as Dry Bones, Hammer Bros., Magikoopas, and Goombas also sit by the sidelines, cheering on the racers.
InfinityRemixCourse U Mount Wario U Mount Wario returns from Mario Kart 8 as the final course of the Horn Cup. Aside from slight adjustments, the course is the same both visually and mechanically. However, some jumbotrons have been added around the course, advertising WarioWare, Inc.

Trivia

  • Infinity Remix was originally created to be an answer to several Mario Kart games that could be considered unoriginal or cookie-cutter, as well as to how it would be difficult to make a Mario Kart game interesting and unique.
  • Baby Rosalina's hair was changed from cream to red, referencing Rosalina's hair color in the illustrations of her storybook in Super Mario Galaxy. This change was made to address complaints about Baby Rosalina going against the series canon regarding Rosalina's backstory.
  • Infinity Remix marks the first playable appearance of several characters, particularly ones hailing from spin-off titles such as Captain Syrup, Queen Merelda, Croco, Luvbi, and Jonathan Jones.
  • Pokey was included as a playable character to reference the flash game Mario Racing Tournament, which included it as a character.
  • The course logos are similar to those from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, making it the first installment since then to include logos for every course.
  • Infinity Remix is the first game to bring back courses that were already reintroduced as retro courses in a previous game.
    • However, this mainly only applies to a few select games, being Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart Wii. In an interview with the director of Crash Co., this decision was made because "all the worthwhile tracks in [the aforementioned games] were brought back already" and "to give some of the best courses of the series new life".
