Mario Kart: Switch Circuit now features Smart Steering, first appeared in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It features two new features. The first one is Surface Racing and the second one is Mega Drift.

Gameplay[]

The objective in Mario Kart: Switch Circuit is to place first in the races, as with most racing games. Each race has a total of 10 drivers. As in other Mario Kart games, players can drive through Item Boxes which contain items, which can aid the players. On the course, coins are collected to increase the vehicle's speed. If the player has no coins, the numbers in coin bar are red. The player starts the race with 5 coins, and there is a 20-coin limit. The 200cc Time Trials return, along with Mission Mode, Double Item Boxes and Ultra Mini-Turbos.

This game has five new cups, five retro cups, five DLC cups and extra DLC cups. Each has four race courses. The cups with new courses are the Mushroom Cup, the Flower Cup, the Star Cup, the Egg Cup and the Special Cup. The cups with retro courses are the Shell Cup, the Banana Cup, the Leaf Cup, the Mario's Cap Cup and the Lightning Cup. If the player manages to collect a gold trophy in all 200cc cups, the background for title screen changes to a sunset. If the player manages to collect 4-star ranking for all cups including the DLC cups, are the Power Pellet Cup, the Chaos Emerald Cup, the Krabby Patty Cup, the Bob-omb Cup and the Rabbid Cup, and the cups with the extra DLC cups, are the Warp Star Cup, the Mega Mushroom Cup, the Super Bell Cup, the Boomerang Cup and the Power Moon Cup. The background for title screen changes to a night-time setting.
