Mario Kart: Double Dash

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is a racing game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. The game is the fourth installment in the Mario Kart series, following Mario Kart Super Circuit from 2001. It was followed by Mario Kart DS in 2005, and Mario Kart Wii in 2008. It has a CERO: A / ESRB: E / OFLC: G / PEGI: 3+ rating. Double Dash!!'s features differently from the other Mario Kart games, where instead of just one player per kart, there are two (One to drive, and one to use items). Players also cannot hold items behind themselves, which makes it more difficult to block incoming shells.

Features

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is also the first game in the series that forces players to drop their items when hit by a weapon. The game features multiplayer battle modes, with enclosed battle arenas and varying architecture and a constant arsenal. Two new games have been implemented; the first game involves capturing a Shine Sprite and maintaining possession of it for a time period and the second game involves throwing Bob-ombs at each other. Double Dash!! allows LAN play by using the Nintendo GameCube Broadband Adapter. Up to eight GameCube consoles can be connected, allowing for 16-player multiplayer games, with two players controlling each kart. Players can choose from a cast of twenty Nintendo characters, eleven of which are new to the series. Characters have different special items and their weight classes of light, middle or heavy determine the karts in which they can ride. Eight karts are available from the start, and another thirteen can be unlocked by successfully completing races. There are sixteen courses, divided evenly into four cups. A fifth cup, the all-cup tour, has the player race all sixteen tracks. Each track is also playable in “Mirror Mode”, available after winning the all-cup tour, in which the tracks are mirrored.
