Mario Kart Fueled is the 9th Mario Kart game, developed by Molten Blaze Studios for the Wii U and Nintendo Flare. Underwater driving, bikes, anti-gravity, ATVs, kart customization, coins and gliders return.

Game modes

Grand Prix

In this single-player mode, you race against 11 CPUs across a group of 4 races, called a cup. You gain points based on your ranking in each race.

Time Trials

Here, you can race yourself for you best time, either solo, or against a "ghost", a recording of your past races. There are also "staff ghosts" of Molten Blaze and Nintendo employees already programmed in the game. You start each Time Trial with 3 Mushrooms.


Here, you can play alone or with others. You can customize what the engine class is, which items there will be, what tracks to play, how many races, who the CPUs are and what they use, the CPU's difficulty, and the number of CPUs.


In this mode, you battle it our with items on either an arena or racetrack in 1 of 4 different modes.

Balloon Battle

Balloon Battle returns to the way it was done in MK8, where you gain points for popping balloons, and if you run out of balloons, you become a ghost, where you can do anything but win.

Shine Runners

Shine Runners returns so there could be no limit to how many you can have, as coins are already in the game.

Grand Star Capture

Grand Star Capture is basically Shine Thief, only with a Grand Star, as Shine Sprites are used in Shine Runners.
