Choco Island 2 is the second course of the Star Cup in Super Mario Kart. It was subsequently reused in Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the fourth and last track of the Extra Lightning Cup, in Mario Kart DS as the first track of the Lightning Cup, and in Mario Kart Tour starting with the Tokyo Tour. Set on Chocolate Island, the course features a large "lake" of mud.

Course layout[edit]

It is very similar to the first Choco Island course; however, it is harder due to the bigger chocolate rivers making the karts slide. This, as well as the hard turns, bumps, and narrow roads making it hard for heavy karts to finish in first place. Again, Piranha Plants are located along the way, and the darker ground off the road slows karts down. The center of the track is a rectangle area surrounded by four walls, and a ramp, which can be used to escape from the area when entered, is placed by one end of the walls.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

Choco Island 2 reappeared in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and is the fourth and last track of the Extra Lightning Cup. It uses the background from Sunset Wilds. The Piranha Plant hazards were removed from the track and an extra item box can be found along the left side of the track shortly after the large mud lake. Since the game does not feature the Feather item, the closed-off rectangle area in the center is now inaccessible; the ramp within that area is also removed.

Mario Kart DS[edit]

Choco Island 2 reappears in Mario Kart DS as the first course of the Lightning Cup. Despite its short length, it is considered to be one of the more difficult courses to recover from a mistake on because of its length and having only three laps. It was available on Wi-Fi.

In this version of the course, item boxes replace some of the coins from the original, while in Mission Mode, some of the coins are in the same place as in the SNES version. The walls within the course are thinner. Many bumps were removed, yet they still remain a challenge to drive through.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The course in Mario Kart Tour

Choco Island 2 reappears in Mario Kart Tour, starting with the Tokyo Tour. It retains its Mario Kart DS layout. A Glide Ramp was added on the right side of the large chocolate lake. The course now has a starting banner with the classic Mario Kart logo. Like all other courses, it has a reverse, trick, and reverse/trick variant, known as Choco Island 2R, Choco Island 2T, and Choco Island 2R/T respectively. The reverse and trick variant was introduced in the Ice Tour. The course is a favorite of Wendy, Nabbit, Rosalina (Halloween), Baby Peach (Cherub), Daisy (Fairy), Mario (Chef), Penguin Mario, Dr. Mario, King Boo (Gold), and the Pastry Chef Mii Racing Suit. It is also a favorite of Petey Piranha if he reaches level 3, and Black Shy Guy and Mario (Santa) if they reach level 6.

While most retro courses in Mario Kart Tour use their original music, Choco Island 2 reuses the arrangement from Mario Kart DS, which is also reused for Choco Island 1, RMX Choco Island 1, and RMX Choco Island 2. This and Choco Island 1 are the only SNES courses to use their Mario Kart DS arrangement, as the others all either use one from Mario Kart Wii or Mario Kart 7, or their original one if they were not featured in one of those two.

The course icon for the Reverse/Trick variant erroneously features a ramp that does not appear on the final turns before the finish line. The large, red ramp is also absent.

  • Websites
    • Flag of USA.png "Choco Island 2 takes you off the asphalt and into the mud. Little ramps scattered along the course are more likely to slow you down than to launch you over trouble, so keep your eyes peeled!"
    • Flag of Europe.png "Make sure to fit your mudgards for this one, as this track is surrounded by icky sticky brown goop that will slow your kart to a crawl in a split second. Also avoid the bumps that bounce you around. If you hit them, try not to oversteer and they'll prove less of a problem."
