Recently, Hideki Konno, producer of Mario Kart for the DS, has mentioned more details about the future of the game.
The game was already known to be one of the first games that utilizes Nintendo’s new online wi-fi service. Konno said that Battle Mode will be available to online gamers. There will also be four player racing.
The game will feature over thirty tracks, fifteen of which are new. And, for the first time, gamers will be able to race as the same character. In order to avoid confusion, the characters will be dressed in unique color schemes with the player’s name hovering over their heads.
