It makes your speed a little bit faster and you take them with you at the end of the race to unlock parts or characters

The more you collect, the faster you go.

That and buy stuff. (unlockables and all that)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I just find it baffling how people are saying about cancelling preorders because of the roster. If anything the battle mode is the most disappointing thing tbh, I doesn't sound like it will online either

That also surprised me as well. I have never really liked Battle Mode but some of the maps made for it were so fun and cool. I would like Nintendo to explain their decision on changing it up.

And I was really hoping that the best battle course ever was going to make it into the game....

That's not Double Deck.

4 floors with an arena in the middle along with 12 players online. This stage was ahead of it's time and it would've been perfect for Mario Kart 8. All the fun that could've been possible.

Well, the unlocking part is only in Mario Kart 7 up to this point. We don't know the uses of coins outside of the race track in Mario Kart 8.

Ok, Double Deck was fun too. And probably a better fit for Mario Kart 8. But in their original games, SNES Battle Course 2 takes the cake. It also had some awesome music.

Wouldn't be surprised. What can you improve upon that's not live performed when it's only a generation back?

I've been listening to some of the music and Grumble Volcano sounds very similar to the Wii version. Though I hear minor differences, like that one bit from 0:24. It sounds a bit different to me.

Love the 70's funk vibe of one of the tracks can't remember the track, the one before Moo Moo Meadows.

It's going to have a great soundtrack!!! The music from the Nintendo Direct was absolutely amazing.

In Mario Kart 7, yes. But we don't know if that's the case this time around.

Coins were also in Super Mario Kart and Super Circuit and did nothing outside of the race track.

I already own 3 of the 4 games being offered for FREE. Looks like i'm going with Wii Party U (as long as the digital version counts toward the promotion, which i'm guessing it does.)

I'm in the same boat. Kind of a slap in teh face for those who have already purchased all of these games. I guess its Wii U party for me.

It seems one of the biggest complaints is the roster, but if it turns out Diddy, Boo etc are unlockable it shouldn't be a problem. I'd rather unlock a cool character like Diddy then Metal Peach.

We all know Wii Party U was shoehorned in for all the people who bought the other three games so they don't feel gypped.

What I'm implying is that there was nothing to unlock in those games but seeing as karts come in separate parts there is something to use the coins on.

Though Mario is the "main guy," of the Mario Kart series do many people actually use him? I'm no Mario Kart expert and haven't played MKW in a few years and don't have a 3DS, but seems like from comments I have read people don't seem to play as him.
