Mario Kart 3DS trailer shows gliding, customizing and underwater

If you missed Nintendo’s E3 2011 press conference you may not have heard what was revealed about Mario Kart 3DS, today we will show you the game’s official trailer which boasts some features which we have never seen before in any previous Mario Kart title.

The trailer has been embedded below, it gives you a good look at the game’s visuals (although it is hard to do them justice without 3D), apparently the game runs at a 60fps frame rate and people who got some hands-on time with it at E3 2011 seemed very impressed.

What excites us the most is that it shows both in-air and underwater maps, the in-air segment of the video shows us a glimpse at a glider which attaches to your kart, whilst the underwater teaser shows us your kart with a propeller on the rear, this will certainly add to the game’s longevity.

Another thing which caught our eye takes place roughly 75 seconds into the video, you see a screen which allows you to customize your kart with different shapes, different size wheels and with what also looks like different colors, we can’t wait to see this particular aspect of the game in a little more details.

Check out the video below, does it surpass your Mario Kart 3DS expectations?
