In coin runners, you collect the most coins. You can pick the difficulty of the computers, the items and whether to have teams. There is a time limit of 2 minutes in both modes.
Balloon Battle -
Balloon battle is back in this Mario Kart. You must pop other players balloons to increase your score. If you lose all your balloons, you will lose 1,2 or 3 balloons, depending on your score. Hitting another player with a mushroom or a star will steal one of their balloons, giving you an extra life before you lose your balloons.
