|Developer(s)||Outer Limits Co.|
|Release Date(s)|| TBA 2012 |
|Media Included||Machinima Disk|
Mario Kart Machinima is a typical Mario Kart game. It features 3 types of gameplay, third person, first person, and the brand new aerial view. Aerial view allows the player to see their racer, along with the surrounding environment, from a high-up view. This allows racers to see upcoming hazards, how far in the lead they are, and any incoming items. Although helpful, it can prove to be hard to maneuver.
The player also has the choice between manual and auto drift. Auto drifts allow you to focus on the track, but manual allows you to get a speed boost after drifting. This proves useful in passing players.
Tricks and Coins both return in the same manner they did in Mario Kart 7, as well as both gliding and propelling.
Each class has its own pros and cons; each class and their performance is listed below:
- Light - Low speed, low weight, medium acceleration, high drift, high handling, high off-road
- Medium - Medium speed, medium weight, high-medium acceleration, high-medium drift, medium handling, high-medium off-road
- Heavy - High speed, high weigh, low acceleration, low-medium drift, low handling, medium off-road

Boss Mode from Mario Kart DS will make a return. Some bosses from MKDS will return, along with a few new bosses. The mode will cost 75 HavoCoins.
Each boss will be battled in order in Boss Missions with a certain character. This is sort of like a mini story mode.

Once a boss is defeated in Boss Missions (not counting the original four; Big Bully, Eyerok, Goomboss, and Big Bob-omb (King Boo, despite being in MKDS, counts as new as his appearence is different and his battle is different)), they will be able to be battled with any difficulty and any character.
- Big Bully
- Big Bob-omb
- King Boo
- Boom Boom
- Koopalings (random)
- Dry Bowser
There will be 4 new items available for download. The set of items will cost 25 HavoCoins.
