Nintendo Dimensional Derby is a 20XX racing party game developed by Nintendo. It features characters from the Smash Bros franchise. It was released instead of a ninth installment in the Mario Kart series, meaning it is meant to take Mario Kart's place as Nintendo's premier racing title. The game features extensive online functionality.
