Mario Kart 8 (Wii-U)

Recommended Posts

Also they missed that scene in the Thunder Cloud in Cloudtop Cruise where Bowser drives by Mario, who is indeed dragging a Green Shell behind him.

 

 

I personally did loved Wii's Tracks, especially the entire Star Cup, that diversity from the Scenic Daisy Circuit, to the coastal and fun Koopa Cape, to the beautiful Maple treeway to the Destructive and road dissolving Grumble Volcano.

 

In 7, I wasn't really a fan of the two Wuhu tracks that much cause they were only one lap around the whole track, same said for Rainbow, but I loved DK Jungle, Music Park, and Wario's Shipyard and a couple others.

 

DS, I thought the DS had the most creative and most diversity of all the games.

 

Double Dash I didn't really like a lot of the courses and music from that game, I don't know, it felt lacking. But the items in it like the Giant Banana, chain Chomp and Bowser Shell were awesome.

That would be nice, we got bikes, we got Hand gliders and propellers for Air and underwater sections, then they should add on Double dash karts and have them customizable.

Holy mustard of Doom that is awesome, WAY better than the last 3 games Box covers that were all white in the background (DS, Wii, and 7). I think that's Rosalina all the way in the back their.

 

Honestly I cannot wait for this game, I'm gonna play the living shit out of it.

I was about to post myself saying this is the first time Rosalina has ever appeared on a cover.  They're really pushing her as a character huh.  Weird that it's come a generation late rather than when the Galaxy games were relevant, but cool all the same.

Goodbye, Mario Kart bland boxart trend that over stood it's welcome. See you in hell, Mario Kart Wii's invisible car bullshit! And hello Mario Kart 8's awesome colorful boxart. That's a box art that definitely screams "BUY ME"!

Yeah Rosalina has certainly come a long way eh, to actually being playable in a Main Mario game, through only post game. She's even now appearing in Mario Part Games, not playable yet through.

 

It's only a matter of time till she's playable in a sports related Mario Game, possibly in the upcoming Mario Golf game on the 3DS.

 

 

Feels like the Year of Rosalina.

 

 

but yeah Daisy is still very fun to play as.

Actually I think she was on the cover for Mario Party: Island Tour, but this is the first time she'll have been on the cover of a game people legitimately care about :P

Shame Bowser's car from Super Mario 3D World didn't make it in.

That would've been a thing of legends to drive!

How do you know it's not in?

 

We've only seen 6 Cars and only 3 Bikes so far from both trailers, as well as 3 Wheels, the Standard, Monster and Slim and only one glider.

 

Also only 13 tracks were seen so far out of 32 (two of which were referenced in Sunshine Airport and 3 of which are Retro Tracks) and only 17 characters have been seen so far out of a possible 24 or more.

 

We barely seen any new other items either aside from the usual (and the worthless Blooper), it's still unknown if the Bullet Bill, thunder Cloud, Mega Mushroom, Boo, and Super leaf are back yet or if their are any new items instead. 

 

 The game ain't due till May, so their was still plenty to do between the time of the second trailer and it's release.

Mario Kart is quite weird for always wanting to do its own thing and not referencing other games much.  In fact Mario Kart 7 blew my mind for taking that long to have a Wario track that actually remixes some Wario game music into it, and Donkey Kong having a course directly based off something from his own series.

 

Still, even though most of the time Mario Kart does its own thing, it still manages to fit right into the overall universe, so kudos to that.

Totally didn't notice that the Statue face in front of the Boo Manor was of Boohemoth from NSMB:2, They also worked Bouldergeist in the track too as the entrance of the underwater section.

 

You spotting more references and details every day eh.
