The Legend Of Zelda: Karting (ゼルダの伝説ゴーカート), also known as Zelda: Karting is a brand new spin-off game in The Legend Of Zelda series. It plays very similarly to the Mario Kart franchise, aside from a few notable differences. It was released for the Wii U and 3DS on November 20th, 2016 worldwide.

The game is shown to be largely centered around The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, as the characters' designs are from that title. Many of the advertisements and promotional content, and even the boxart, feature tracks like Hyrule Field.


The core gameplay is about the same as the Mario Kart series, but with new features, such as Special Moves. Up to twelve players race on a chosen track with its own unique style and potential hazards. Grabbed items can be used to put you at an advantage. There are three laps in a single race, although this can be customized.


There is a very large variety of characters, ranging from The Legend of Zelda to Hyrule Warriors. Each has their own costumes and colors.

Arguably the most important part of the game is the mounts. These act as the vehicles seen in most standard racing games. There are live mounts, such as Epona or the Loftwings. Despite this, there is still a large number of things fashioned into karts, like the Spirit Speeder.


Tracks are the areas in which the characters race. They are split into five different cups, each containing ten tracks.
