In Mario Kart Online, during races, an announcer provides colourful commentary.

Race introductions

  • Mario Carnival - "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Mario Carnival! Racers will have to make sure the bright and colourful atmosphere doesn't distract them from the nail biting race!"
  • Yoshi's Island - "We're here live from Yoshi's Island! It's the home of the lovable dinosaurs where they all live in peace... but will the racers be able to make it past the attacks from the big, bouncy Burts? Only one way to find out!"
  • Waluigi's Nightmare - "It's time for a race in Waluigi's Nightmare! It's dark, it's frightening, and it's absolutely crazy, just like the man himself! Racers will have to be careful not to get caught in the terrifying traps included in the course!"
