Mario Kart: Swift Sliders is a new Mario Kart fan game for the Nintendo 3DS.

Name meaningEdit

Swift Sliders was chosen because this Mario Kart game has a mandatory ability you must learn to pass all cups. The ability is an upgraded version of drifting called Slide-Swift. You drift first by holding on the A and R button and swifting the analog circle pad left <-> right. Once you're at maximum drifting power (you can tell when the fire and the tires turn from yellow, to orange, to finally red), you will be prompt to activate the start of Slide-Swift by pressing the X button. You can cancel Side-Swift by pressing the Y button, during Slide-Swift by pressing the B button, or wait three seconds to cancel. During Slide-Swift, the race stops and you have to hold the A button and rotate the analog circle pad in either clockwise or counter-clockwise for three seconds. Release, to give you a very powerful speed boost for ten seconds and be invincibal for ten seconds (and to resume race).
