Mario Kart 64 HD is a remake and a mix between the first games of the series: Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 respectively; the game is set to be released exclusively for the Wii U. Not much is known about it.


The gameplay maintains the traditional elements of previous Mario Kart games, mostly from Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64. Despite this, the gameplay still features balancement handles between the karts and the hang-glider and underwater mechanics are reused again. Karts, which feature similar designs to the ones from the original Super Mario Kart, can be customized once again. Additionally, when drifting, some letters will pop out of the kart in form of smoke, a reference to Mario Kart 64.



There are 10 known characters in total, 7 being starters and 3 being unlockable. Characters are divided into three classes depending on their weight: Light, Medium, and Heavy.

*Bold means unlockable.
