I'm thinking Dry Bones, Diddy, and Bowser Jr. MiI would likely have a separate row just for then like they do in MK Wii.

Well, the separate row for Mii in MK Wii look pretty reasonable. But imagine that on the MK8 selection screen. I don't know.
Maybe Dry Bones get the cut and the Mii will get one of the question mark spot.
Or Miis won't be in this game.. Which is pretty unlikely.

It''s looking like there won't be a third DK character like in Wii, which is slightly disappointing, but at least DK might not be alone like last time.

I dunno. No matter how you slice it, this roster just feels lacking. Birdo, King Boo, Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, Mii, Diddy, Petey Piranha, E Gadd,, ROB, Funky, Queen B, Dry Bowser, on and on, yada, yada. It just feels like there are a lot of characters not returning, many of which were one-shots and many of which don't deserve to be cut. Especially not for the fourth baby, seventh Koopaling, and fifth enemy character. I dunno. This entire roster just feels of. DLC, perhaps?

meh, it isn't like the roster has mattered much to me. Even in the oldest games, I use maybe 3 or 4 of the 8 characters.

I think bowsers castle from MK7 is gonna be the last retro track, there already water and gliding sections in there, and nintendo if you gonna look they put since the 2nd mario kart alsways 4 tracks in the game from the last MK and from MK7 untill now we only have , so there is untill today not ab BC announced so that makes sence!

It won't be a 3DS track. These tracks are more-or-less confirmed for the last two cups:
N64 Rainbow Road
N64 Yoshi Valley
GCN Sherbet Land
DS Tick Tock Clock
Wii Grumble Volcano
3DS Music Park
3DS Piranha Plant Slide

It's unlikely they will have two tracks from the same system in one cup. So the "unknown track" almost surely won't be from the 3DS or N64.

@Skywake Actually, they've remade three Bowser Castles from Mario Kart: Super Circuit (GBA), and not a single one from Super Mario Kart (SNES). Kind of interesting, actually. As for potential Bowser Castle tracks for retro courses, there's:

Boswer Castle 1, 2, and 3 from Super Mario Kart
Bowser Castle 4 from Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Bowser Castle from Mario Kart Double Dash
Bowser Castle from Mario Kart DS
Bowser Castle from Mario Kart Wii

For some reason, I thought the Double Dash one was redone in MK7, but it wasn't so maybe it's in MK8? Well, maybe, but after watching, I don't think they'll go for that. There doesn't seem to be much they could do with it, on this game. I also agree they probably won't do a flat stage, since they only did a GBA Bowser Castle in 7. I'm still leaning towards DS. It may be too soon to do a Wii Bowser Castle, but those do seem to be the two main choices, don't they?

Hmm, again I'm wrong. They did actually do three Bowser's Castles from the GBA. I don't know why they're so into the GBA Bowser's Castles. Maybe the SNES version is still a possibility? As for it being too soon for the Wii track well it's about the same amount of time since the DS game. Plus on Mario Kart 7 the only two games they pulled four tracks from were the Wii and DS versions. Then it was 3x 64, 2x GC, 1x GBA, 2x SNES.

I'm safe. I'm always Yoshi, but yeah, it's not like anyone will refuse to buy it over the cuts being made. I just think it feels off, is all.

Another look at the current roster.

All the villain characters (maybe minus DK) are on the bottom two rows, so I'm going to guess that the very last one could be Bowser Jr. (makes sense to put him next to the Koopalings) and less likely but maybe Dry Bowser. The other two could be Dry Bones or Diddy Kong, but maybe we could even see a Baby Rosalina?

However this is already a sizable roster, even if my favorites aren't in there. Something tells me there could be more spaces than what's in that picture, though.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is another row on the bottom there. If you were designing this for that number of characters wouldn't you centralise it?

Not necessarily. The current design let the A+B button info stand out more, and the eye focus in windows is more comfortable a bit above the vertical center (that's the approach OSX uses when auto-positioning dialog boxes, for example).

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Stealth Inc. 2, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Bayonetta 1+2, Rayman Legends, Wind Waker HD
Looking forward to:
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, SSB U, Affordable Space Adventures, X, Hex Heroes, Yoshi's Wooly World, and more

In conjunction with the release of MK8 new copies of MK7 will also have a red casing.

The full roster?
Newcomers:
1. Nabbit
2. Kamek
Returning characters:
1. Diddy Kong
2. Birdo
3. Bowser, Jr.
4. Dry Bones
5. King Boo
6. Mii
Looking at these icons again, some of them look rough, like the ones for King Boo and Dry Bones. I'd be cautious if I were you, unfortunately. I was getting pretty happy until I looked closer.
