Basic gameplay is retained from the previous games in the series, in that racers race across various tracks while using items to help them in placing first. The game feature eight cups with four tracks each. Single player modes consist of a mode where the player races computer-controlled opponents, a mode where the player battles computer-controlled opponents, a mode where the player attempts to make the best time in which a ghost can be saved and shared online, a mode where the player races such ghosts, and a mode where players compete in online competitions with various challenges. For multi-player modes, players can race or battle with up to four players locally, or race or battle with up to twelve players online. The aforementioned Battle mode is divided into two modes: Balloon Battle, where competitors use items in an attempt to pop the most of their opponents' balloons, and Coin Runners, where competitors try to collect the most coins while using items to steal coins from their rivals.
