Mario Kart Wonderland is an upcoming Kart Racing Game for the Nintendo Switch, it is the ninth mainline Mario Kart game released in the series (tenth if counting Mario Kart Tour). The game features various features from previous games mainly those seen in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

GAMEPLAY

Mario Kart Wonderland has similar gameplay to the previous Mario Kart game on consoles, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe using a multi-terrain racing system where players race in a variety of vehicles across numerous race tracks (some new and some returning from prior games) with the goal of passing the Finish Line in first. Alongside this are several additional game modes which shift up gameplay in various ways.

GAME MODES

In Mario Kart Wonderland there are four selectable modes to play in; Grand Prix, Battle Mode, Mission Mode and Online Mode. Although functionally Online Mode simply provides a wireless multiplayer option of the Grand Prix and Battle Modes.

GRAND PRIX

Grand Prix is the primary mode for Mario Kart Wonderland. It focuses on racing against other racers either CPU or player controlled (LAN). The mode uses "Cups" which have four tracks each. The goal of each Cup is to get 1st and achieve a podium position. The first two Cups of the Nitro Tracks are available from the beginning. The other Cups unlock as the player completes each of the other Cups. In total there are eight main Cups grouped into two groups of four. First, are the Nitro Tracks (Mushroom, Flower, Star & Special). Second, are the Retro Tracks (Shell, Banana, Leaf & Lightning). There are two Bonus Cups which are separate being the Globe Cup and Falcon Cup.

The player is able to unlock new Cups as long as their score in the pre-requisite cups is 3rd or higher. The player's score is their position in each of the four race tracks in that cup. The player can have a mixture of high and low placements and still be able to unlock new cups. Cups have different appearances depending on the player's total score. Third gets Bronze, Second gets Silver and First gets Gold. The player can also get a Platinum trophy if they get 1st on all four tracks in a Cup.

Along with the main cups there are also Cumulative Cups . Cumulative Cups have more than four tracks in them and use tracks from other courses. There are three Cumulative Cups known as the Cumulative Tracks and are;

  • Nitro Cup - Uses Tracks from Mushroom Cup, Flower Cup, Star Cup and Special Cup
  • Retro Cup - Uses Tracks from Shell Cup, Banana Cup, Leaf Cup and Lightning Cup
  • Grand Cup - Uses Tracks from all other Cups (including Bonus Cups)

Unlike the regular cups, these cups select their tracks at random. The last tracks in these cups is always Rainbow Road.

The player can also select Reverse Mode once they've beaten a Cup with Gold (or Platinum). Reverse Mode Cups play the tracks in reverse with modified track designs. There is no trophy reward for beating a cup in its Reverse Mode.

New to Mario Kart Wonderland is Mirror Mode. This is not the same as the Mirror Mode in prior Mario Kart games which describes Reverse Mode. Mirror Mode in Mario Kart Wonderland reverses the track and changes the theme. The themes of these Mirror Tracks are the opposite of their regular counterparts. Tracks are also designed to be more challenging in this mode with more hazards. To unlock Mirror Mode the player must beat the eight Cups from the Nitro & Retro Tracks with Gold (or Platinum). The player can also have both Reverse and Mirror Mode active to play the Mirror Tracks in their reverse.

BATTLE MODE

Battle Mode returns once more with the player able to select from a variety of minigames. Unlike Grand Prix, Battle Mode focuses on achieving a goal that is more focused around strategy and team play as opposed to speed. The following are the Battle Mode Minigames available in Mario Kart Wonderland (New Game Modes are bolded);

  • Balloon Battle (Points) - Players have Balloons attached to the back of their Karts, the goal being to pop the balloons of the opponents, the item pool in this mode is limited with a heavier emphasis on Mushrooms and Shells (ramming someone with boosted speed can steal their balloon). This can be played in Solo or Team mode, in addition on the course itself are balloons which can be popped for additional points, sometimes a gold balloon will appear which is worth three points if popped.
  • Balloon Battle (Survival) - Similar to the other Balloon Battle mode, however this one has players limited to a set number of balloons (three or five) and once a player is knocked out they're eliminated appearing as a ghost that can't interact with the living players. Like the Points variant, this mode can be played in Solo or Team Mode although unlike the Points mode there are no neutral balloons on the course itself.
  • Renegade Roundup - Returning from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this game mode is similar to Cops and Robbers with half of the racers being the Chasers and the other half being the Runners. The Chasers goal is to use the Piranha Plant attached to their vehicle to catch all the Runners, in addition to the Piranha Plant, Chasers can also get a number of items from item boxes that help with trapping the Runners. The Chasers win if the Runners are all captured. The Runners by contrast must focus on evading the Chasers, the item pool differs for Runners focusing on helping them evade the Chasers, in addition when a Runner is captured they're sent to a jail area located around the arena, Runners who are free can help their other Runners by running over Key Panels on the map which will unlock the Jail freeing the caught Runners. The Runners win if at least one of them is not in jail when the timer runs out.
  • Mud Trooper Tag - A new game mode which is functionally similar to Zombie Tag, the game mode is Solo Mode only in contrast to Renegade Roundup which is Team Mode only. One character at the start of the game is selected as the Mud Trooper while the others are the Runners. The goal of the Mud Trooper is to catch each of the other players turning them into Mud Troopers as well, and wins if they succeed in catching all the players. By contrast the Runners like in Renegade Roundup must avoid the Mud Troopers and win if they're not a Mud Trooper by the end of the time limit. Uniquely the Mud Troopers are not able to use items and as such disable an Item Box for a short period of time when they pass through it, by contrast the Runners start out with a fairly standard set of items however as fewer players remain relative to the number of Mud Troopers the item pool improves significantly.
  • Bob-Omb Blast Off - A new variant of the Minigame Bob-Omb Blast that had appeared in prior games, unlike the original the goal of this game is to load the player team's rocket with Bob-Ombs to launch it into space, like the original game mode the player can collect up to 10 Bob-Ombs and use them offensively to attack and stun opponents knocking their Bob-Ombs off their vehicle as a result. Bob-Ombs can be collected from Item Boxes or by by passing over wandering Bob-Ombs in the arena. The first team to fill their Rocket with the necessary Bob-Ombs wins.
  • Bob-Omb Blast Away - A new variant of the Minigame Bob-Omb Blast that had appeared in prior games, this is functionally more similar to the original than Bob-Omb Blast Off although features some new mechanics in the form of stage destruction. The goal of this mode is to knock out all other players by using Bob-Ombs, the only item obtainable in this mode. The player can once again carry up to ten Bob-Ombs although can sometimes acquire Red Bob-Ombs which have a larger blast radius and King Bob-Omb which only one can appear on the arena at any given time and has an enormous blast radius. In contrast to the original parts of each arena can also be damaged and destroyed if struck by a Bob-Omb this includes structures falling as well as the floor disappearing. The minigame has both a Solo and Team Mode option.
  • Coin Runners - Returning from previous games, Coin Runners is a game mode that focuses primarily on picking up as many coins as possible and holding onto them, the minigame can be played in Solo Mode or Team Mode. While collecting coins the pool of items the player can get is relative to their position overall with the characters with the most coins getting the weakest item pool while those with the fewest coins getting stronger item pools.
  • Shine Thief - Returning from previous games, Shine Thief sees players attempting to hold onto a Shine Sprite for a period of time, the game can be played in Solo or Team Mode and has two options for the timer being either a sustained timer or resetting timer which refers to whether the timer records how long the player had held the Shine Sprite for or not, sustained timer has a longer overall time required relative to resetting timer. The player with the Shine Sprite is slightly slower although their item pool is improved.
  • Delivery Rush - A New Game Mode which sees players take on a delivery role where they must bring a particular item that is scattered across the arena to Lakitu who moves around the arena. The game is able to be played in both Solo Mode and Team Mode and can have both a Score and Time based system (i.e. a player wins when they reach a certain score or there is a timer). The various items that need to be delivered can vary wildly and some have helpful or hindering attributes, in addition characters can steal each others items assuming the thief isn't already carry the item, like in Balloon Battle this is done by ramming the target player with boosted speed.
MISSION MODE

Returning for the first time since its original appearance in Mario Kart DS, Mission Mode allows the player to tackle unique scenarios both on the Grand Prix Tracks and Battle Mode Tracks. Mission Mode is split into 45 Missions which are grouped into Nine Worlds (five Missions per World). Missions can vary significantly with some using mechanics not seen anywhere else in the game, every fifth level is a Boss level where the player must go up against a Boss Character, these are often similar to the ones seen in the original Mission Mode with some taking place on Grand Prix Tracks while others take place in Battle Mode Tracks and some using unique arenas of their own, the goal of each Boss Level is to knock out the Boss by depleting their health bar, this can be done by ramming them with boosted speed, knocking them into obstacles and hazards or attacking them with items.

The Game mode is able to be played as Single Player or Co-Op with a star denoting completion of that mission in each mode.

GAME MECHANICS

As with prior Mario Kart games, the core driving mechanics are fairly straight-forward and intended for a more casual audience.

CHARACTER & VEHICLE SELECTION

Before actually racing at all the player is able to select their Character and Vehicle. Characters are split into five Weight Categories which denote the types of vehicles they can drive with the second and fourth weight classes able to drive a mixture of the first & third and third & fifth weight classes respectively. The five weight classes are; Feather, Light, Medium, Cruiser and Heavy. Each Character has secret stats which cause them to vary slightly from one another within the same weight class, these stats are not directly shown to the player although can be inferred by picking two characters in the same weight class and having them choose the same vehicle composition which may show slight stat variation.

The Vehicle selection system has been completely overhauled in Mario Kart Wonderland resulting in somewhat of a mixture between the system in Mario Kart Wii and the one in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8. Players now select the Shell, Core and Paint Job of their vehicle. For all intents and purposes the Core is the only part of the vehicle now which affects stats with the Shell and Paint Job being purely visual. Shells and Paint Jobs are available to all characters while Cores are specific to each Weight Class. The Shell of the vehicle is the visual aspect being what that vehicle looks like while the Paint Job determines the colouration, all vehicles have a default colouration with additional paint jobs being unlockable.

DRIVING

Like with prior games the driving controls for Mario Kart Wonderland are functionally straight-forward and intended to be easy to make use of. The player is able to Accelerate (A-Button) and Brake (B-Button) as well as steer with the left control stick or D-Pad (Left and Right only). Players can also change their view to Third-Person View (default), Rear View and First-Person View with the X-Button. Drifting is able to be performed with the Right Shoulder Buttons (R or ZR) or the Y-Button as long as the player is also steering left or right respectively, when driving straight the player will instead hop which can be used to jump small gaps and dodge some obstacles. Pressing the Left Shoulder Buttons (L or ZR) will have the player beep their Horn or use an Item if they have one. Items can also be held behind the player by holding the Left Shoulder Button allowing them to be used defensively, the player can also press on the Left Joystick or D-Pad (Up and Down only) to swap between their Primary and Secondary Item Slots allowing the player to effectively hold up to three distinct items at once (two in slots and one while holding the Left Shoulder Button).

Alongside Drifting another technique players can use is Drafting which is performed by riding behind another character which causes a wind break to appear in front of the player which if sustained for a few seconds will give them a significant speed boost temporarily. A slight variation that appears in Mario Kart Wonderland is the introduction of the distinct Powerslide, a mechanic that is performed by initiating a Drift while at Boosted Speed. Powerslides are similar to Drifts however allow for much sharper turns and when the player ejects themselves from a powerslide will get a significant speed boost temporarily.

Returning from prior Mario Kart games are the terrain systems which allow the player to drive underwater, in the air and even in gravity defying manners. Driving underwater is functionally identical to how it served in prior games although gliding through the air has slightly changed with the player now able to perform dives and lifts by accelerating of braking allowing the player to more quickly approach the ground or glide for a longer distance. Perhaps the most changed mechanic is Anti-Gravity, in contrast to Mario Kart 8 where the mechanic was limited to certain sections of the track, in Mario Kart Wonderland, anti-gravity is constantly active allowing players to much more significantly adjust their position around the track, this is most notable in cylindrical sections of track where the player can now functionally drive all along the track. The anti-grav bumpers also return giving the player the same speed boost if struck however unlike in Mario Kart 8 hitting other players will not result in a speed boost anymore.

ITEM MECHANICS

Items are a core part of Mario Kart being obtained primarily from Item Boxes which are floating rainbow-coloured cubes located across each course track and battle arena. Items can vary wildly in functionality with some being minor advantages to significantly helping the player. In general the items a player can get are determined by their position within the race with higher positioned players (such as 1st) getting generally weaker items compared to lower positioned players (such as 16th). As mentioned prior, the player can effectively hold three items as once by holding the Left Shoulder Button, having an item in the reserve slot and running over an item box to generate a new item in the primary slot. An items use can also vary somewhat from item to item with some being single-use while others can be used multiple times before being consumed and others are used once but have a prolonged effect.

CHARACTERS

Like previous Mario Kart games, there are a large number of characters that players are able to select from. Unlike previous games however there is a significant emphasis put on reducing the overall fluff of the roster by making characters Alternates of one another, this is similar to what was seen in Mario Kart 8 where the various Yoshi and Shy Guy colour alts were not designated as their own character slots.

Though listed under the same character slot, some alt characters have slightly different stats to their base counterparts.

VEHICLES

Mario Kart Wonderland changes the Kart system from prior Mario Kart games. The selection process has players select parts of the vehicle; Shell, Core and Paint Job. Unlike prior games only the Core affects the vehicle stats which act like Mario Kart Wii. The Shell and Paint Job are cosmetic affecting the vehicle's appearance and colour.

Although, the Shells are generally cosmetic, they are also grouped into classes. Classes of shells have unique qualities giving them effects other than their stats. There are six vehicle classes; Kart, Bike, ATV, Rocket, Gyrocopter and Quadbike.

  • Karts - The standard vehicle, balanced with no unique effects.
  • Bikes - Capable of performing wheelies and having a smaller hit box. They lack the second level of drift turbos and are lighter than other vehicles using the same stats.
  • ATVs - Better at handling off-road terrain and having a short spin-out time. This is in exchange for an inferior road speed and worse turning angle.
  • Rockets - Faster than other vehicles by comparison, especially on straight road sections. Their turning radius is far larger than any other vehicle and so often need to brake when turning. Rockets also have a longer spin-out than other vehicles.
  • Gyrocopters - Unique in that they do not touch the track and as a result aren't affected by some hazards. Gyrocopters also don't get a penalty from driving off-road, but this is at a reduced speed. Gyrocopters also have a faster gliding speed, but slower underwater speed.
  • Quadbikes - Quadbikes have the smallest frame of all vehicles and can take much sharper turns. They suffer from being lighter than other vehicles and slide on slippery surfaces.

Vehicle stats have five categories; Speed, Acceleration, Weight, Handling and Traction. Cores fall into weight classes which denote which characters can use them. Shells and Paint Jobs are available to all characters regardless of weight class. Below is a list of each vehicle part with associated stats for the Cores;
