I still don't understand what they were thinking when they added the Honey Bee Queen (Random is an understatement.) and Metal Mario (We're making power-up forms separate characters now?) as characters in MK7.

But anyways for MK8, I'd love to see forgotten characters like Tatanga and Wart appear in the roster.

Also Cacketta just because she's awesome moreso than Fawful IMO.

Apparently, Metal Mario's been his own character for a while now, like in super Smash Bros, Mario Golf and Dr. Mairo 64. I still think Tatanga and Wart should be in it, though, Tataanga could have a modified version of his own ship!
Also, am i still the only person who wants Gooper Blooper?

I would be nice if they included one of the Bowser kids in this game (and then I don't mean Baby Bowser, but one of those first introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3). I'd love to drive as Iggy or someone:)

They would have to include all seven then! It wouldn't feel right having one or two then leaving the rest out

I think it still would be better to have only one of them instead of Baby Bowser. Don't mind which one, cuz I think they all have such cool designs:) And Bowser's always been one of my favourite characters in the MK series, so...

I hope the roster isn't as terrible as Mario Kart 7's. I mean, Honey Queen? Wiggler? Really?

I'd be happier if they kept MK8 at 12 characters, rather than force unnecessary characters in. In saying that, I'd be pretty surprised if Diddy kong, Bowser Jr., Baby Mario, Baby Luigi or Miis aren't added.

I don't know about that..Mario Kart Wii had twice that number of characters, and two more if you count Mii A and Mii B
It seems that since Double Dash, the console versions of Mario Kart will have more characters than the handheld versions. Plus, Mario Kart 8 is 12 player racing rather than the usual 8, so that means you would see the same characters every single race

If I may ask a perfectly valid question: WHY DOESNT SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD LOOK THIS BEAUTIFUL?! Which, I'm not saying the graphics in 3D World are bad by any means, they look great as well, but Mario Kart 8 surpasses it by a longshot. 3D World should look like this!

Well, 7 is probably similar to DS and it looks like this will be very similar to Wii. Bikes, characters, and now positions. Though the future review may be 8/10.

Super Mario 3D world is probably built upon 3D land way more than Mario Kart 8 is built upon 7. Like I've said before I do think at some point 3D world was going to be a 3DS game but got expanded to Wii U when they needed software for it quickly.

Plus Racing gamers are easier to make technical showcases compared to regular games.

Hey, we should've stopped discussing on page 8 and asked a mod to lock the topic.

Excited about the online feature the game offers. Having communities will be a boon and being able to record matches for the Mario Kart TV will be a great use of miiverse.

How come I haven't heard of this! If it's not too much trouble shingy, would you please direct me to the details? This sounds as though it could be neat!

I don't think so, the graphics look great, and they have said that they started working on 3D World not long after 3D land. They said it was interesting to see how they could do different things on different systems.

Should be on a system level but it still sounds cool. Also from the video

_Miiverse/NN lets you play with others around the world.
-Host tournaments
-set rules
-and play with others in the community
-!2 Karts in local and online.
-The game can create a 30 second highlight reel of the match.
-You can share replay data on miiverse
-Its like a channel where you can watch replay data and watch your wins and losses.

The graphics look great but not anything compared to Mario Kart which was the best looking internally developed Nintendo game. I'm saying at some point in time the concept for and prototype for 3D world probably started on 3DS but full development was transitioned to Wii U for the xtra power.

@Sony_70
The Mario Kart 8 Miiverse features will probably be available(they probably already are) for any developer to implement.
If features like that are proven to get people's attention and give a game more chance to sell, they'll add it.

Those sort of Miiverse features can technically be added for any title, and with PS4 and Xbox One already having those features, it's likely they'll just link these games to the community and let the Miiverse online network handle it instead of the actual console.

With Miiverse, you can also share things between other devices besides just the game consoles. That's one thing Nintendo has done that Sony hasn't. Game videos and such are locked onto PS4 consoles as far as I know.

As for the local 12 player, I wonder how they're gonna do that. I'm guessing 3DS systems or wireless LAN between WiiU consoles might happen.

EDIT: UStream works for PS, but Xbox One basically has the same thing. The difference is that you don't need more than one account for Miiverse to work.
So yes, there are differences, but they all closely appeal the same way pretty much.

Wow, the online features of this entry really seem promising. This one really looks like it may very well be the best Mario kart game yet!

Game looks great. I'm still blown away at how much EAD G1 has been able to accomplish given the short deelopment frame between this and MK7.

Naw Sony's already confirmed mostly how the system will work.

The System will automatically cache the last 15 minutes of gameplay for upload and you can go back too Take a screen shot pr edit the video to get the piece you want. You also have the option of doing a straight up live stream to services like Stream and Twitch.
