New or returning features include:

  • Dual Item Capacity: Players can hold up to two items at one time.
  • Drive Assist: This optional mode makes it so a player cannot fall off a course.
  • Boo and Feather Item: The Boo item allows for a racer to steal an item from another, while the Feather allows for big jumps.

Most important is that Battle Mode makes a triumphant return to the franchise with this re-release.
