You've already seen the Banana and Flower Cups and now you can check out the Leaf and Star Cups plus the Battle mode by watching these great new Mario Kart 7 gameplay videos. We also spotted a shortcut on Wuhu Island.
Star Cup features all-new tracks including Piranha Plant Slide, Wario Shipyard, Neo Bowser City and Maka Wuhu. Piranha Plant Slide takes place mostly underground, although you do shoot up to the surface in what looks like a retro Mario scene, all green pipes and old school brick work.
Wario Shipyard takes you through an underwater cavern while Neo Bowser City is a road race through the rain in a modern city, complete with neon Boswer signs. As for Maka Wuhu, this is the second course set on Wuhu Island and it takes you around the volcano. Did you spot the good shortcut through the castle? It looks like you have to go up a ramp, through the arch and you'll come out the other side.
Finally, the Battle Stages are a mix of the new and retro with stages set in Battle Course 1 (Mario Kart Super Circuit), Big Doughnut (Mario Kart (Mario Kart 64), Palm Shore (Mario Kart DS) plus Honeybee Hive, Sherbert Rink and Wuhu Town.
What do you think of the courses so far? Which one is your favourite.
