Mute City is the fourth and last course of the Egg Cup included with The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content in Mario Kart 8 and in the base content of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This course is based on the F-Zero series. Coins are not present naturally on this course, and can only be obtained by driving over the Pit areas, Item Boxes, or picking up the coins dropped by other players.

Course layout[edit]

Mute City
A view of the cityscape surroundings.

The track takes place entirely in anti-gravity. Signs and buildings throughout the course depict and reference various F-Zero racers, including Captain Falcon, Samurai Goroh, Dr. Stewart, Pico, Jody Summer, and Mr. EAD. Right off the start, several boost pads and Pit areas (which gives them a maximum of ten coins) can be found. Some of the boost pads randomize each time the course is played. After a U-turn, the track begins to corkscrew before a large jump. Afterward, the track continues on a cylindrical route that continues to twist before another jump leads into an opening in a building. Here, two more Pit areas can be found before the race continues outside. After a few turns, the track becomes a downhill drive past a Rocket and a few signs depicting Captain Falcon before it arrives at the finish line.

In the second and third lap, a Dash Panel will activate along the finish line. This is a reference to the Boost Power from the F-Zero series, which is activated after completing a lap. A desert can also be seen on the outskirts of the city, possibly a reference to the Sand Ocean course from the F-Zero series.


  • There is an offroad section inside the U-turn after the exit of the building, that one can cut off if a mushroom boost or star is used.
  • The turn before the downhill section can be cut off by boosting through offroad leading to a ramp, which then leads to another platform that one can use to get to the main path.
  • One can use a star or mushroom to boost through two offroad patches before going off the final jump to the finish line.

Mario Kart 8 Original Soundtrack liner notes[edit]

"The combination of Mario Kart and Mute City is a real recipe for speed, and we wanted your hair to be standing on end with the sense of acceleration. For this, we got the sax and guitar to have an all-out soloing duel."
