In Mario Kart 8, the player can pick up coins. Having never played the game (only watched You-tubers play it), I don't see the importance of these. But, the people I watch seem to make a big deal about getting as many as they can, up to a max of 10.

What is the point of collecting these coins?


3 uses.

  • boosts a little bit of overall speed of your car, max out at 10 coins
  • gives a very very tiny speed boost
  • unlock unlockables (Every 50/100 coins will unlock a part)
