No Nintendo console is complete without a Mario Kart!
Mario Kart 3D
Having a friend over at your house and playing Super Mario Kart on the SNES all day was the essential part of your childhood. I know it was mine. After the huge success of Mario Kart DS on the Nintendo DS, Mario and his friends (and foes) fasten their seatbelts once again to race for the crown. And the Banana Peel trophy.

Unfortunately, Mario Kart 3D has no official release date yet, but I reckon that it will be out around May or April 2011. As of now, we don't really know what characters you will be able to play as. Confirmed are Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Bowser, Peach and Toad. I love Yoshi. Best driver. Period.

I'm excited for the new power-ups and the 3D effects. Definitely looking forward to seeing the ink blot. And real-life shell-dodging. I also wonder what the new tracks could possibly be. With the release of Kid Icarus: Uprising, I hope for an Angel Land Grand Prix.
Aside from just racing, Mario Kart 3D will feature online multiplayer (just like its predecessor) and a lot of fun game modes. Balloon fights like in Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 will be back for us having a blast. Literally.
