@masterguard08, because of that i hope there will be an option to mute the people that are enoying, so that you hear only the people that speak and use it normal

I'm a little concerned about the implications of this "game chat." I don't want kids yelling and cursing me out. It better be optional.

Game chat in mk8
people moan and complain when its not known to be offered
still moan and complain when its confirmed

me and my friend who live a ways away: YAY!!! maine for me, florida for him
personally i will rather feel great enjoyment hearing what people say when i launch a blue shell, hit them with green shells, etc.. its gonna enhance the online experience more than anything, and its a G.O.O.D thing to have game chat in 2014.

Someone just mentioned on Gamefaqs that Mario Kart 8's file size is now on the eShop, it is said to be under 5 GB. Actually 4.83 GB. Looks like I'm gonna go with the digital version.. :)

Edit: I Just checked the eShop page, it is a little higher than 4.83 but STILL under 5GB.

Same, I'm glad its around 5GB of course the download will still take awhile but not nearly as long as say, Tropical Freeze (11GB)~

So I assume the game has 30 characters then? So 2 characters are just metallic clones, 5 characters are just baby versions of other characters and 7 koopalings?
That my friends is a terrible roster. At least the game looks good

I'm not keen on all these pallet swap characters metal Mario was bad enough but Pink Gold Peach is just ridiculous.

I can't belive I'm saying this, but I really think this roster is a bit worse than MK7....There I said it.

Whatever, the game still looks awesome.

  • Once again, Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach are in
  • Crazy 8 item is the spiritual successor to Mario Kart 7′s Lucky 7
  • Super Horn: emits a sonic blast around your kart
  • This pulse can knock out other racers or ward off Green, Red, and Blue Shells
  • Super Horn is a rare item
  • Acts as a counter measure to the Blue Shell
  • Voice chat in lobbies for games with friends only
  • Tournaments are one of the bigger features in the game
  • Choose an icon and input name for it when they Create-A-Tournament
  • Select rules next
  • Can change the speed of the race (50cc, 100cc, 150cc) whether you want to allow racing as teams or even multiple rounds to decide a winner
  • Can also set if a tournament is public or restricted to friends
  • Other tweaks: restrict control schemes used in a race, whether computer players can fill in empty slots, and vehicle types (kart, bike, or ATVs) allowed in the race
  • Takes player ratings into account
  • You can set up a race so only players who achieved a certain online rank can join
  • Once a tournament is created, you have a number code to share with your friends, or it can be discovered publically via search
  • Daily/weekly/monthly recurring tournaments supports
  • Can set start/end times
  • Ex: a player could host a race for friends that occurs every Sunday night between 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. PT
  • Can set a tournament that has a specific start and end date, or even a number of races allowed within a set time
  • Whenever you create a tournament, you can choose which item sets are allowed in a race
  • Players can choose between: all items, shells only, bananas only, mushrooms only, bob-ombs only, no items, and Frantic Mode
  • Frantic Mode: higher frequency of powerful items like Lightning Bolts, Bullet Bills, and possibly Blue Shells
  • Game records all races you participate in
  • Game retains the events of the last 12 you competed in on the Wii U itself
  • These replays save everything that happened in the match, so you can use simple editing tools to tweak certain parameters
  • Replays aren’t finalized video, but gameplay footage you can quickly edit in Mario Kart TV
  • Not a complex editing system
  • By tweaking certain parameters, you can focus on specific drivers and moments
  • Video focuses on action, big hits, items, or drifting
  • Clips are 30, 45, or 60 seconds
  • You can also render a highlight reel to display the full race
  • Once a highlight film is edited, you can output a video to Miiverse or YouTube in HD
  • Unclear if 720p or 1080p
  • Players sign up with a Google Account and, while it’s uploading, you can edit a Miiverse post with stamps
  • Battle Mode features new and existing courses re-engineered for this mode
  • Battle mode replays can also be edited and shared by Mario Kart TV.
  • In multiplayer, the GamePad mirrors the same four-player split-screen that was on the television
