Nintendo America and Nintendo Europe have both announced a release date for the forthcoming Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS. The game will be released in Europe on December 2nd and December 4th in North America. Time to put down those pre-orders!
Mario Kart 7 will include a new optional first-person driving mode that is controlled using the gyro sensor. The game also introduces new playable characters like Lakitu and Metal Mario, and a tricks system like the one in Mario Kart Wii
Now I need a 3DS

Shut up and take my money!
wow.. great trailer.. but they need really new characters not Metal mario!
i mean wtf? they could put it as unlocked clothes or something
i want to see link, pit and all other SMB characters joins the best karts game around
Link and Pit aren’t SMB characters :^
It’s called /MARIO/ Kart for a reason. I don’t know if you know this, but having MARIO in the name tends to denote that the game is about the Mario franchise and it’s close relatives, such as Yoshi or Donkey Kong. It’s not a cross-series racer. Unless it’s called Super Racing Bros. or something, just don’t expect characters from other franchises. And by the way, unlocked clothes would have to be for every single character, not just Mario. And I’m pretty sure Link and Pit wouldn’t be taken very seriously if they’re put into a game like Mario Kart. They’re fighters, they’re not all-around like Mario.
Well why is Wario in it then? Wario was never really in Mario games expect party.
Wario was the final boss in Super Mario Land 2: 6 golden coins
Wario was in Super Mario Land 2? O_O
LOL! Game. Set. Match
Wario is obviously a character within the Mario universe? Are you dull?
For once I’d like to see Nintendo put Fawful and Midbus as characters in a Mario Kart game or something.
I’d like to see Fawful throw delicious mustard sandwiches at his opponents, and then steal their voices with his hat.
Metal Mario, Lakitu as playable characters. First person mode. Gyrosensor controls (which is pretty stupid, since the 3d will not work) and the Fire Flower as an item. This is gonna be amazing.
All we need now is Professor E.Gadd as a playable character.
Why did that clip ever have to end. I wanted to watch more awesomeness. ;~;
i am pretty sure i saw a tanooki leaf in the item reel…
i definitely saw a “7” in the item reel, exactly like the “7” in the title, and i am quite sure i saw a tanooki leaf item. I really hope birdo and waluigi are charcters and i hope there are buttload of karts
yes you did and the leaf! maybe the 7 gives you alot of coins?
I hope they didn’t get rid of Rosalina…
Also they totally need to put in… uh, uhm… I dunno, someone cool from Galaxy 2. :3
like the chimp or Lubba
Roasalina is confirmed. She was seen in the footage showed at the conference last night.
But wait, I am confused,..in first person mode do you HAVE to use gyro controls?!? Hopefully not,…
Smh *sign*……………..TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!!
I’m so happy they kept the trick system! I think this might be the best mario kart. Only thing that will hold this back is the music.
The Streetpass feature is so awesome!! First you 3DS’s exchange ghost data, yeah cool.. But you can also register the other players to your friend list to play against them online! :D
(SpotPass gives you ghost data, too)
That is the time I want it.
Hey sickr! Are you sure metal mario is a playable character and not a power-up?
That was taken from the press release, so yes, Metal Mario is a playable character!
hmmm, the ign live blog seemed to think it was a power-up that let each player deflect items?
Metal mario! WOOT! I forgot what game metal mario is from. What game was metal mario from, It’s not sunshine or am i remembering that game wrong?
Well, he’s in Smash Bros. But I don’t know if that’s where he originated.
mario 64 i think
No, Metal’s in the game, you can see that he’s the one Mario’s throwing fireballs at, in the distance.
That wasn’t metal mario that was luigi
Anyone notice Europe are getting games before NOA now? A game later on this month is 30th for Europe, next month for NOA.
Xenoblades NOA does not get EU does.
Mario kart, Europe gets it 2 days before. 3DS EU gets it 2 days before. i’m not complaining but why has it all changed, Even games NOA are making are getting released in EU first :S anyone else noticed?
First-person mode for the WIN!
how does the trick system work? is it motion based again or is it a new control like the dpad?
I would like it like Star fox 64 3D. Just like in Star fox 3DS, they should have Gyro controls to move left and right so the 3DS is like a stearing wheel, Nintendo should have the normal circle pad controls just like the d-pad in mario kart but in the circle pad type for better stearing.
Oh thats not how it would work though. Nintendo has not confirmed any of this its my opinion. the Circle pad is most likely true. Nintendo if your developing controls still, Put the Gyro thing in.

Is Professer E.Gadd a playable character?! He was in Luigi’s mansion which is a Mario game!
I paid this game off weeks ago :D
I like what I see hopefully they release some 99 cents or even free DLC the game can get boring if you play the exact same thing all the time
This looks like a hit before it even hits the shelves. Good work Nintendo.
This will be a game I will play for a long time! I can’t wait! :D
