Here is some footage from a recent stream of the game:

Shows of some neat stuff. A glimpse of the cup selection menu & lots of gliders & car parts. Be aware of next to no sound, low quality footage and bad players though.

@MasterGuard08 I believe the game actually drops from 60fps to 30fps but stays locked, youtube videos are all at 30fps so the game will look better in person.

@BusterRed123 It can't be a 3DS one. There is no 3DS stage in the Shell Cup, limiting it to three 3DS stages. I suppose they could always break their one-per-cup rule, but I just don't think that'll happen.

@DestinyMan The DS one is the most stylistically unimpressive because you're blocking out all memory of the SNES and GBA Bowser Castles. XD But no, seriously, it's because it had the lowest limitations of any non-flat Mario Kart to work with. MK8 could do a lot to improve that stage and make it really shine. Besides, I think it's too soon for Wii's Bowser Castle and I don't see a whole lot they could do with the GCN Bowser Castle, given these mechanics.

@DreamyViridi Fair point, but I think that's precisely why we won't see a flat Bowser Castle, this time.

Weird.

Believe it or not, this might actually make me pre-order the game. I always hate having to spend money on gas, and I'm going to cut corners wherever I can.

After taking another look at some of the older Bowser's Castle tracks, I think Wii is probably going to be the best choice for a retro Bowser's Castle, it seems like it would benefit the most from the antigravity. SNES would probably be too flat and boring like most of the SNES and GBA tracks tend to be, Double Dash and DS don't really benefit much from any of the new game mechanics in recent games, and 7 is too new and doesn't really benefit from the antigravity either.

I really didn't like 3DS Bowser's Castle. But, MK7, MKDS, and MKWii all had four tracks from the previous generation....So, It's Probobly gonna be a 3DS one. I hope it's Rock Rock Mountin. I don't know what they could do though....

I'd prefer they save Rock Rock Mountain for a later game, but there's a couple of neat things they could do with it right now if they wanted to. The biggest thing I think they could do is add antigrav paths on the sides of cliffs, the right side cliff on the first stretch of the track, and the uphill path leading to the finish line (this could be especially interesting if it was designed so the boulders can hit you if you're driving on the walls, so you would probably have to dodge them by going higher up the wall). probably being the best candidates. They could also possibly add an alternate route from the first gliding section that you would need to use the wind gust from the pipe to reach.
