TGS 2011: Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land get release dates; new details on Mario Kart revealed

Posted By | On 13th, Sep. 2011

Nintendo announced at their TGS 2011 presser that the two highly anticipated Mario games on the 3DS, Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, will be released December 4th and November 13th respectively. This comes after Nintendo announced the names and the release windows of these gamesa while back.

Mario Kart 7 will be released in Japan 3 days after its release in Us, on December 7. Super Mario 3D Land, however, will release ten days early in Japan, on November 3.

See some of the gameplay footage for Mario Kart 7 here, it looks great. We, personally, cannot wait to get our hands on it.

Nintendo also released some new details on Mario Kart 7. Two new characters will be featured in the game. Lakitu with a cart similar to the cloud he is always riding, and Metal Mario.

New modes like a cockpit view which can be controlled via the 3DS’ in-built gyroscope, will also be included in the game, and a trick system similar to what we saw in Mario Kart Wii will also be featured. An 8-player online mode will also be featured.

You can also connect to your friend in Mario Kart 7 via Niontendo 3DS Friend Codes, a feature that no other 3DS game sports right now.

Stay tuned to GB for more updates.
