Battle Mode Revealed for Mario Kart 8


Battle Mode is back in Mario Kart 8, and this time it’s going back to its roots! The fan-favorite mode was revealed today, showing off a match between four players, all fighting against each other. This kind of Battle Mode was last seen in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, although there is no word if any other modes from more recent Mario Kart titles will return.


One thing to note is that this Mario Kart is not using brand new battle maps, but will instead use the following eight tracks as maps to battle on:

  • Wii Moo Moo Meadows
  • GCN Dry Dry Desert
  • SNES Donut Plains
  • N64 Toad’s Turnpike
  • Mario Circuit
  • Toad Harbor
  • GCN Sherbet Land
  • N64 Yoshi’s Valley
