Mario Kart: Switch Up! is an upcoming game, releasing on the Nintendo Switch. This is the second Mario Kart game to be released for the Switch, as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was a port of Mario Kart 8. This game returns the Two-Player per Kart format, from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as a separate mode and you can switch between items during races and during Battle Mode.
Gameplay and ModesEdit
Like past installments, Grand Prix works the same way. 50cc, 100cc and 150cc are available by default, with Mirror and 200cc being unlocked by 150cc and by unlocking all characters, respectively. The Flower Cup and Banana Cup become default cups, something that never happened since Mario Kart Wii.

In Super Mario Kart, and Mario Kart Super Circuit, 5th or worse forces the player to retry the race. If the racer fares this badly three times, the Grand Prix must be started over. In Mario Kart 64, 5th or worse forces the player to retry the race, but without the restrictions on how many times the player can retry a race. In Mario Kart: Double Dash to Mario Kart: Switch Up!, the Grand Prix normally goes forth.
There are a total of 40 tracks in the Grand Prix mode. This returns old new and retro cups, featuring two newcomer cups, the Egg Cup and the Bell Cup and goes back to Mario Kart Super Circuit's Grand Prix, where they had 5 cups in the Grand Prix. This time, there are 5 nitro cups and 5 retro cups.
