    • The system must be updated to Ver 4.0.0 or higher to use this feature.


  • Now more difficult to float down using the glider when Smart Steering is ON.



  • Blue Shells no longer hit the second place player when the first place player hasn’t yet crossed the finish line.



  • Extended the invulnerability period after spinning out or crashing.



  • Changes made to Online Play prior to Ver.1.2.1 now apply to Wireless Play and LAN Play as well:
    • When further back in a race, will receive better items to help catch up to other players.
    • No more than one Piranha Plant will appear at a time.
    • Updating to Ver 1.3.0 will prevent users from Wireless Play or LAN Play with users on Ver.1.2.1 or lower.
