Mario Circuit is a new stage based on Mario Circuit in the Wii U game Mario Kart 8 in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Unlike Mario Circuit in Brawl, this stage is based on the actual course.
The main stage element is the anitgravity course. While the fighters will always be orientated parallel to the ground, the course's surface turns in the shape of a Mobius strip. As the travelling platform stops, it builds into however the course is at that point so the fights can fight on a sign with the course above them, the railings with course sideways behind them, on a sign connecting to the railings with the course acting as a wall and a few more.
The additional stage element are the Shy Guy racers. Like in other Mario Kart stages, these guys race on the track as the fighters duke it out alongside the course. They are hazards though they can be knocked out. However, unlike other Mario Kart stages, this one has antigravity so, the Shy Guys come from all sides, even the ceiling, the wall and across the back of the stage.
This is the music that plays in this stage. Bold indicates unlockable song. Italics indicates returning song.

This stage is based completely on Mario Kart 8 though the textures in background are less detailed than in the original game. The stage takes the anti-gravity of Mario Kart 8 to each stop and even the traveling platform as seen by the hover pad in the platform.
