Mario Kart Arcade GP DX
From the Super Mario Wiki
Grand Prix, Clone Battle, and two-player modes are featured in the game. The player can choose between seven karts, five of them being unlockable. Before starting a race, the player can take their photography and decorate it with twelve included features, such as a samurai helmet and a pirate suit. The player can choose to play in 50cc, 100cc and 150cc, with the latter two being unlockable. The player then must choose which one of three themed tracks (Toad, Mario, Don-chan) they want to play. Like Mario Kart Arcade GP and Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, there are only 6 racers in each race rather than 8 or 12. Every circuit has a time limit, and when the player is at first place their photography has a crown. When the player completes a lap, lights between the game screen change the color. The main feature of the game is that players can now play in cooperative, similar to Mario Kart: Double Dash!! in that a player is the driver and the second shoots items. Cooperative play is only possible by gaining a special power-up which transforms the player's kart into a tank that will drive and the second player is called to control the turret and shoot unlimited amounts of Green Shells at any direction for a limited period of time. Additionally, gameplay elements from Mario Kart 7 such as the use of gliders and underwater courses are present.
Instead of Mario Cards like the last two installments, the player can use a Banapassport Card to save their progress. As such, the cabinets will have online connectivity, but it is currently unknown if the game will have online leaderboards or multiplayer.
The commentary from Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 returns and this time, it is voiced by Rica Matsumoto in the Japanese version.
The game features a total of twelve playable characters (nine are default, and the other three are unlockable). Characters are divided into four weight classes (feather, light, medium, and heavy).
There are twenty-three karts to choose from, and gliders are automatically preset when selecting a kart.
Mario Kart Arcade GP DX has the most items out of any Mario Kart game.
The game features 10 race tracks, all of which share the general track layouts of courses in Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 but modified significantly, mainly to alter their theme. Only the Mario and Bowser Cups keep their tracks' original branding, while the Yoshi Cup becomes the Toad Cup, the Donkey Kong Cup becomes the Don-Chan Cup, and the Waluigi Cup becomes the Bowser Jr. Cup. The Wario, Pac-Man, and Rainbow Cups are removed entirely.
