New Mario Kart 7 details have surfaced after Nintendo’s 3DS Conference.  For starters two brand new characters, never before playable in the series, have been announced.  Metal Mario and Lakitu are proud additions to the Mario Kart roster.

Mario Kart 7 will also feature a tricks system like Mario Kart Wii, and feature a new First Person Driving mode that takes advantage of the 3DS’ gyro sensors to control the steering of the Kart.

The new Mario racer will be taking advantage of the 3DS Street Pass feature as well.  Players will be able to Street Pass Ghost data to one another.  After Ghost data has been exchanged these players will then be able to find and race each other online!
