Outlast your opponents as you dash through hazardous environments on foot, grabbing weapons and powerups along the way! Race your amigos amidst explosions, stampedes, and all-round chaos! Those that can't keep up are eliminated from the current round. Win rounds by being the last amigo standing; win enough of them and you will be crowned as grand champion!
Face your foes head-on in a battle arena! Use the weapons at your disposal to annihilate your enemies, and tactfully trigger powerups to avoid being wiped out yourself! Get hit 3 times and your amigo will be momentarily eliminated before being thrust back into the action. Players get points for causing damage to their opponents; the amigo with the most points once the time runs out is the winner!
A series of events, either Races alone or both Races and Battles, that will truly test your stamina and skills against your amigos. There are 18 different Tournaments to choose from in total. Winning a Tourney truly cements your status as a champion amigo!
Every racetrack has its own Challenge for you to overcome! There are 3 different types of Challenges for you to master:
Guide two amigos at once around the racetrack with a single controller! You must get both of your amigos safely around a single lap before the time runs out.
Hot on your heels from the get-go is the dreaded Evil Stampede! If it catches you then you're toast! So run fast and complete a lap of the racetrack before that happens.
Only the speediest of amigos will be worthy of this challenge. Catch the Mystical Piñata (which, doesn’t want to be caught by the way) before the time runs out!
Truly test your speed in Time Trials Mode. Each racetrack has a Bronze, Silver and Gold target-time for you to aim for.
