Updated: Feb 17

The goal of the game is to either finish a race ahead of other racers, who are controlled by the computer and other players, or complete a circuit in the fastest time. There is also a battle mode in which the aim is to attack the karts of the other human players. This is an awsome opportunity to grab the console and game.

No. 1 Did you choose the right Vehicle?

Speed or Sharp Turns

First things first, for beginners, a kart with good acceleration and handling is easier to use, while for more experienced players, speed tends to dominate a gamer's preference. So you'll want to keep this in mind when selecting your bike or kart. Funky Kong and the Flame Runner as the best combination to use. I prefer tight drifting vehicles with good speed are the best.

Mario Kart is a series of racing games developed and published by Nintendo. Players compete in go-kart races while using various power-up items. It features characters and courses from the Mario series as well as other gaming franchises such as The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, F-Zero, and Splatoon.

No. 2 What are the best Characters & Weight Class?

Character Stats

Light characters give less speed and weight bonuses, but are better at everything else. Because they are light they can be bumped around more often. Medium characters have the most balanced stats (though once again, this usually depends on the bike/kart you choose.) Big characters give more speed and more weight bonuses but less of everything else, as well as an increased resistance to getting bumped around.

No. 3 Manual or Automatic Drift Type?

Keep in mind Bikes & Karts drift differently

Automatic allows you to drift (turn easily at corners) automatically without pressing buttons, but does not allow the usage of Mini-Turbos, which are miniature speed boosts. Manual drifting does allow you to use Mini-Turbos, which can be activated by releasing B (the drift button) when you see blue or orange sparks from behind your vehicle as you drift. Orange Mini-Turbos are only possible using karts. Keep in mind that bikes and karts drift differently, so try out both and see which one you prefer, although it is accepted in the Mario Kart Wii community that bikes are generally better to use because they can perform wheelies when not turning.

No. 4 Use a Rocket to start the Race.

Boost & Accelerate

Doing this gives you a quick advantage out of the gate. Mario Kart is a very fun game, but as it gets more competitive, you'll want to pull a few tricks of your own. Want to see all Mario Kart games?
