Bowser's Castle looks so epic.

Well, this has been a wonderful morning! I am excited to play as Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach (or Metal Peach as I am going to call her). Bring on May 30th!

I was watching the Direct with my kids, and my daughter also got very excited about Pink Gold Peach.

I am disappointed by the Direct. Baby Rosalina and Golden Peach are complete throw-away characters, and if there aren't any additional unlockable characters past the 30 we've seen in the Direct, this will be the worst Mario Kart roster in terms of what the power of the system could provide. The Koopalings are OK, but are no replacement for characters like Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr., or even King Boo.

The Crazy 8 is just a lazy re-hash of the Lucky 7 with a coin stuck on. And the fact that coins can now be gotten from Item Boxes will just add more randomness to the game by making stuff like bananas and shells to block items harder to get to block other items. It will be even harder now to hold a lead than what it is currently. The Horn is OK, but depending on the places you can get it in the race, the higher it is, the more overpowered it will be. If you can get it at any place above 6th, it will be just as annoying as the Blue Shell.

And the layout of the Direct itself (at least the UK one) was just so childish, boring and patronising. There was a lot of good things that we saw, like the online modes, the track designs, the phenomenal music, but overall the Direct has dampened my expectations of the game. Even though I will still be getting it at launch, I'm not as excitied for it anymore, and frankly I'm looking forward to my free copy of Monster Hunter more.

I agree!!!! This is the best Bowser's Castle I've ever seen!

I'm pretty sure that this game is gonna be the killer app for the Wii U. But there's only one thing I didn't get, does this game make use of the gamepad?

man, this is the closest Nintendo is trying to do for the mass appeal and you're still not satisfied?

Granted the presentation of the direct is a little cheesy but it still announced the good stuff and its kind of funny at times.

Yesterday I walked next door to my friendly GameStop store and cancelled my Mario Kart 8 pre-order.

Today, I paid in full, a new pre-order for the game at BestBuy.com.

Can't wait to get my ten bucks in gas and Pikmin 3!!

Yeah, I'm not sure which way I'm going to go; Best Buy for $10.00 off gas or Target for the $5.00 gift card and the key chain. Yeah I know the key chain is pretty cheap but it's still semi-cool. Definitely going to get Pikmin 3 too though.

Why would the roster matter, really...? The selected character doesn't affect gameplay, it only affects the look and the animations during jumps etc.

@Blast Correction. It lowered his hype, for the game. That's his opinion, and he can say if he wants/likes it or not. And you kind of have to admit, his words somewhat speak the truth.

Not in general, I see that the Direct has hyped up the game for most people, and the Direct has definitely sold copies of the game. But for me personally, I am no longer as excited. It will still be a great game, but not a fantastic one. Some of these changes are being made to cater the the wider casual audience to sell copies (and Wii U consoles, which Nintendo deeply needs), but in my opinion are detrimental to the quality of the game from a 'core' gamer perspective.

Diddy has his clothing line to worry about. No time for racing.

This alone is enough to justify their inclusion in the game if you ask me.
Not everybody is going to like the addition of Pink Gold Peach as a character (including myself), but there will be others who are really excited by it.
There are plenty of other characters in the game that I'm happy with using (should be for pretty much everyone, plenty to choose from) so I'm not going to complain about them adding one character I'm not particularly fond of.
