The king of kart racers has returned with Nintendo's Mario Kart: Double Dash on the Nintendo GameCube. Mario, along with Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Wario and more, are back for more multiplayer, single player and versus action. The new Mario Kart features updated graphics with detailed character models, and colorful interactive racing environments. For the first time, two characters ride in a single kart as one drive while the other uses items, opening up the possibility for two-player co-op racing. Along with the classic four-player competition, Mario Kart: Double Dash offers a new eight-player mode, where players can link multiple systems for a new level of multiplayer kart racing.
# Double the fun! Each kart holds two racers that can switch places at any time
# Choose from a huge cast of favorites: Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Wario and many more, and pair them up in any combination
# The character in front handles the driving duties, while the character in the rear doles out damage with six different items plus eight special items that only specific characters can use
