Players can choose which drivers, karts and gliders to use in races across a variety of courses, including new courses, new takes on classic courses and special city courses.
City courses, which are special in-game event courses inspired by real-world locations, will be available during specific time periods at launch and beyond. In addition to courses based on iconic locales, some Mario Kart characters will get variations that incorporate the local flavour of cities featured in the game.
