Mario Kart 8
It is an Egyptian-themed desert with Egyptian-themed music. It is very humid, and the entire track is a yellow, sandy road. The darkest sand is considered "out-of-bounds". It features and introduces Pokeys as moving obstacles that cause spin-outs when touched. If hit by a powerful item (such as a Starman), they will topple over. Also featured is a prevalent tornado that will move along the track in the opposite direction, sucking up racers and items in its path. There is also a tricky part with quicksand that must be driven around quickly, as driving/being sucked into the middle without protection results in being eaten by some type of Piranha Plant. There is a similar track in Mario Kart Wii called Dry Dry Ruins.
Dry Dry Desert reappears in Mario Kart 8. Many new features have been shown to be in the course, including the pillars from Dry Dry Ruins in Mario Kart Wii. The hill section of the course has been removed, and replaced with an oasis instead. The tornadoes have been removed from the course entirely. It is now a playable stage in battle mode.
- At the first section of the track, use a Mushroom to bypass all of the turns. ✱ for all games
- In the oasis, stay towards the left and exit the oasis by using a Mushroom to the right of the palm tree closest to the track. ✱ for MK8
- This track and SNES Donut Plains 3 are the only non-DLC retro courses in Mario Kart 8 to not involve air gliding. Coincidentally, both take place in the Banana Cup.
