Mario Kart U (alternatively known as Nintendo All-Star Racing) is the latest entry in the Mario Kart series, though it is often called the first entry in the Nintendo All-Star Racing series.

GameplayEdit

The game takes pages from every previous Mario Kart game. There are two racing modes: Single, the traditional mode, and Double Dash, which plays like Mario Kart Double Dash.

Kart customization is removed, and motorbikes are reinstated. The physics are somewhat a little more realistic, with tires popping, engines shutting down momentarily, characters sustaining visible injuries, and showing emotions such as anger, frustration, satisfaction, or fear.

CharactersEdit

For the first time in Mario Kart history, there are a plethora of guest characters, which often leads to this game being known as Nintendo All-Star Racing.
