Singer-songwriter Ella Eyre and her band spend a lot of time traveling and rehearing together and love to play Mario Kart 7 letting off steam and enjoying some healthy competition. "Mario Kart 7 is just a really fun game, it's so intense!" says Ella. In My Life in 3DS Ella Eyre gives an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her life, and with her friends and family explains the important role that gaming plays for her.
Ella loves competing on who's the fastest or who's won the most races with her band, making sure she's choosing her lucky charm driver Yoshi, the best kart frame, tyres and glider to create her custom kart and have the best chance of winning the race. You also collect coins during races to unlock additional parts and construct a vehicle that suits your style! Ella loves the variety of tracks that have different themes and great attention to detail in the design, making sure to pick up items by driving through the item boxes found on every course to use against other players.
As well as trying Grand Prix or Battle in Single Player mode, Ella's favourite way to play Mario Kart is with her band. Even if someone doesn't have the game, as long as they have a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS they can use Download Play to join in the fun by linking to someone who does have the game. You can also connect to the internet to race with players from all over the world! Other ways to play include Time Trials to help you hone your skills, Balloon Battle to battle other players and Coin Battle to choose a stage and grab as many coins as possible to emerge victorious!
Ella has a few tips to help make winning easier: her biggest tip is to keep calm, secondly once you've sussed out the track Ella recommends to use the shortcuts - it's more fun! - and finally, always use your items wisely - don't let them go in a panic! Save them for when you need to get ahead.
