It brought the ''Mario Kart'' series to handhelds for the first time, combining gameplay elements from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'' and ''VideoGame/MarioKart64''. In addition to 20 all-new tracks, it also includes [[NostalgiaLevel every track from]] ''Super Mario Kart'', resulting in 40 total tracks, the most of any game in the series until ''VideoGame/MarioKart8''- and that only won out because of DownloadableContent. In addition to single-player and multiplayer racing and battling, it also allows players to download time trial ghosts through the Game Link cable.

This is the only ''Mario Kart'' game that was developed by Creator/IntelligentSystems who also made ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMario''.

** Like ''Super Mario Kart'', this game gives you limited lives when attempting a GP- you lose one each time you finish below 4th place, or if you restart a track at any time. Also like ''SMK'', the tracks are entirely flat.

* EmbeddedPrecursor: The "Extra Tracks" are the tracks from ''Super Mario Kart'', though they are rearranged into five cups of four rather than four cups of five. They still, however, last five laps instead of the three laps that the Super Circuit tracks last.

** The Lightning Cup, introduced in this game, started life as having a skill level higher than Flower Cup but lower than Star Cup, unlike its further incarnations from ''DS'' and up, all of which have a similar skill level to Special Cup. Plus, this is the only Lightning Cup that is in the form of a nitro cup instead of usually a retro cup.

* NostalgiaLevel: The entire library of ''Super Mario Kart'' is available as extra cups. This is the only ''Mario Kart'' to feature all of the tracks from a previous game, which leaves this installment as having the most retro tracks in a game so far.
%%** Then again, this could all change because while this game has 20 retro tracks, ''MarioKart8'' has 16 retro tracks and the first DLC adds 3, which leaves the total at 19 retro tracks. If the second DLC features more retro tracks, it has a chance to dethrone this game as having the most retro tracks!
