Mute City is the fourth and final 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.
The track takes place entirely in anti-gravity. Signs and buildings throughout the course depict and reference the 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. 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 in 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.
Mario Kart 8 Original Soundtrack liner notes
"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."
