Mario Kart Arctic is the ninth istallment (not counting arcade games) Mario Kart series developed and published by Polar Inc. exclusively for the ARCTIC. It is set for a planned 2017 release date.


The gameplay is similar to previous installments. The gliding, underwater and anti-gravity features are kept from Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8. Mission mode also returns from Mario Kart DS as well as a double dash mode which makes it so there is two players in one kart similar to Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. This time round a new feature has also been added: the ability to change the season and weather on the courses. This could make some courses harder of just make them look different.
