Top 10 Features that Should Be Added to or Brought Back to Mario Kart

Mario Kart has been known for having some excellent features that continue to get better every game. I know it’s a bit early to know when Mario Kart 9 will happen but it’s never too early to speculate what they could do with the next game. Here’s some ideas Nintendo could use.

The Top Ten

1 Missions Mode

I had a blast with this mode back in the day. Would love to see it come back. - RadioHead03

The nostalgia is real. Please bring back missions mode, Nintendo. - PackFan2005

I am absolutely stunned that we have yet to see this mode come back. Missions Mode was so much fun and seeing how much the series has evolved since DS I’d love to see them expand missions Mode even more and maybe even throw in some new bosses - Randomator

2 Double Dash Mode

I want that to appear again in MK9. - yamionthetrap

Double Dash has one of the best gimmicks in the series yet it hasn’t come back? I’d love to see this be revamped especially considering we can go underwater, glide, and use anti gravity. There’s way more characters now and maybe They could even bring back special items as well and I’m pretty sure everyone misses those - Randomator

3 All Cup Tour

This was a pretty fun mode that not a lot of people really talk about. Considering that retro tracks and DLC exist now this mode could be expanded and be even more fun. - Randomator

4 Elimination Style Battle Mode

But importantly, I want a single-player battle mode of where you can battle with other opponents on your own. That might replay value. But yeah, respawning after being touched is losing the fun for the elimination type. So I want that to return. - yamionthetrap

It would be cool if there was an option to turn off the time limit. - RadioHead03

Battle mode is great but it’s not quite the same as the older games. For example, in 64 or Double Dash if you lost all your balloons you were out. In The newer games you just Respawn back in. It’s fine but it’s just not as fun as the older games. Battles aren’t usually as intense anymore - Randomator

5 Ability to Turn Off Certain Items

You know how in smash Bros you can select specific items to turn off? I’d like to do this in Mario Kart. Technically you can choose which items appear but I wish it would be more specific so for example if you hate blue shells you could simply turn them off - Randomator

6 Story Mode

I don't think it's needed in my opinion. - yamionthetrap

A lot of older Mario sports games have this and it’s pretty fun for solo players as it provides more to do. The story itself doesn’t even need to be in depth or anything just give us something to do and throw in a few bosses here or there and I’d be alright with it. - Randomator

7 Leagues

Okay so I know a lot of mobile phone apps have something where you can join with a number of players and go against other leagues. I’d like to see something where you have a league with like 30 people and basically what would happen is you compete online in league mode so all your points go directly to your league total and then you could compete with other leagues. That would be a cool idea - Randomator

8 Track Builder

This doesn’t even have to be as in depth as Super Mario maker is. All I’d want is for them to allow us to create our own track design and insert a few jumps and obstacles - Randomator

9 Online Voice Chat

I would hear screeching from 12th place. - TeamRocket747

This would be fun. - Userguy44

I’m pretty sure it’s in 8/deluxe but it’s only in between matches don’t quote me on that but I’m pretty sure that’s the case. Assuming it is I’d like to be able to chat online during races instead of being limited - Randomator

10 Logo Creator

I always liked the logo creator. - RadioHead03

This was in Mario Kart DS and it was really cool. I’d love to see this be brought back with more colors and since the touch screen technology has significantly improved I’d love to be able to make a logo again and then use it online or something - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Bowsette

This would be a character not a feature - Randomator

NO - RadioHead03

HELL NO - Randomator

12 Non-Nintendo Characters

Okay this is where I draw the line. I think it’s fine if they add in Nintendo characters but this is still Mario Kart not Smash Bros - Randomator

13 Reverse Tracks

Would be much better than Mirror Mode - Puga

14 Blood

Why blood in Mario Kart? I don't see the point of it. - Userguy44

What? - Randomator

15 Make your own character

I mean technically it’s possible because Mii characters exist but really though this isn’t Sonic Forces - Randomator
