Here’s Every Track You’ll See In Mario Kart 7

on November 23, 2011 6:00 PM

When video game sites get early review copies, everyone wins. Well, our review copy of Mario Kart 7 isn’t here yet, but IGN’s got theirs and they’ve already unlocked the full track list. As always, there are plenty of new tracks in the latest Mario Kart with an assortment of old tracks thrown in there as well.

I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who wish to remain as pure as possible until the game’s Dec. 4 release, so click past the jump for the full track list and a video of my personal favorite so far.

I absolutely love what I see of the Donkey Kong stage shown here. Donkey Kong Country Returns was easily one of my favorite games of 2010 and the course looks like it’ll do an excellent job paying homage to the title.

Here’s the full list of new courses:

Mushroom Cup
Toad Circuit
Daisy Hills
Cheep Cheep Lagoon
Shy Guy Bazaar

Flower Cup
Wuhu Loop
Mario Circuit
Music Park
Rock Rock Mountain

Star Cup
Piranha Plant Slide
Wario Shipyard
Neo Bowser City
Maka Wuhu

Special Cup
DK Jungle
Rosalina’s Ice World
Bowser’s Castle
Rainbow Road

And the retro stages:

Shell Cup
Luigi Raceway (N64)
Bowser Castle 1 (GBA)
Mushroom Gorge (Wii)
Luigi’s Mansion (DS)

Banana Cup
Koopa Beach (N64)
Mario Circuit 2 (SNES)
Coconut Mall (Wii)
Waluigi Pinball (DS)

Leaf Cup
Koopa Cape (Wii)
Dino Dino Jungle (GCN)
Airship Fortress (DS)
Rainbow Road (SNES)

So what do you think? Any surprises?  I’m pretty thrilled about the inclusion of Airship Fortress from Mario Kart DS and Mushroom Gorge from Mario Kart Wii. Even if IGN doesn’t have video of all the stages, you can decipher what to expect from the course titles. I’m also pretty stoked to try out the new Tanooki Tail power up and the Fire Flower as well. Mario Kart 7 hits Japan Dec. 1, Europe Dec. 2, Australia Dec. 3 and comes stateside Dec. 4.

Keep a look out for our review and thank IGN for the source material here.
