The usual cast of characters (from Mario Kart 64 and Super Circuit) return with several unlockable characters. The game returns to the original style of kart-racing. The game has twice the amount of normal race tracks due to having two seperate cups - the Nitro Cup (which contains all the new tracks) and the Retro Cup (which contains cups from the previous four Mario Kart games, not counting the recently-released Mario Kart Arcade GP).
In addition, there is a challenge mode where players can perform a variety of tasks. The challenge mode includes boss races for the first time in the Mario Kart series. Battle mode again returns as well.
The game can be played with up to 8 players in a immediate group of players. It can be played online against three other players with a variety of options to play with. The game itself launched alongside the Nintendo DS WiFi system and was the first game to use it.
