Once upon a time in Club Penguin Island, it was a normal day, until ... dark clouds started to appear everywhere in Antarctica, a voice from a radio station said that it appears that Darktain himself is trying to take over the Antarctica, he also said that he would do it in a game of go-kart racing, if anybody is able to stop him, the whole continent would be safe, but if they didn't, the entire Antarctica is doomed and everyone else there would become brainwashed servants of Darktan.
Meanwhile, in a subplot, Fudd looses his tuba to Darktan and decides to take it back by blowing up the castle!
After the Antarctican driver defeated Captain Str00del of the Darktonian Realm, Darktan is still nowhere to be found while a mysterious cave opens up, the driver then drives into a cave, suddenly, Darktan appears in a big screen, he says that he is located somewhere else in the outskirts of the Darktonian Realm, and he is waiting for the driver to challenge him.
Meanwhile, the driver unsuspectingly defeats Darktan in a race, the evil penguin then has to give up the plan and do something else better for him. After the rise and fall of Darktan's Plan happened, the driver, along with some of the playable characters, celebrates in the Darktonian Realm, and then the credits appears.
After the credits a bonus ending is shown.
In it, Fudd grabs the tuba from Darktan and runs out of the cave just before it explodes.
Out of the cave comes Darktan who throws a boot at Fudd and it hits him in the face, much to the enjoyment of the other racers.

The player can change settings for the items to disable or enable them.
The Battlerina mode can also be exchanged with Coin Collecting mode by using the options menu.

If the player collects at least 10 coins, the player is able to 'Mix Up' the weapon to improve it. The coins can be obtained by smashing a plain box with a coin symbol on it, or by collecting single coins found on the track and battle arenas. If the player gets hit by a weapon, or fall into a chasm, they will lose a random amount of coins they have depending on the weapon types.
