A few more Mario Kart 8 details: http://nintendoeverything.com/a-few-more-mario-kart-8-details/

"NintendoWorldReport has published a new preview for Mario Kart 8. Information rounded up from the report (mostly a recap of what we knew previously, with a few extra bits) can be found below."

  • Unlock tracks by racing in Grand Prix mode, which is standard
  • Given 1-3 stars depending on your performance in races
  • This is based on coins collected and finishing place
  • Unlockable gear returns
  • Each piece unlocks for every 50 coins
  • These include tires, bodies, or specific gliders that will impact your stats
  • Stats alter significantly if they are applied to the right character
  • Time Trial and Vs. Race modes
  • Time Trials: play alone or compete against a ghost
  • Race against Nintendo staff member ghosts
  • Beat a Nintendo staff ghost to receive a Miiverse stamp
  • Pull more ghosts from Miiverse and race them
  • More racing battles can be had in the Vs. Mode, where you fight randomly a bunch of computer opponents
  • Play any track you have unlocked in Vs. Mode
  • Again, Battle Mode features existing courses
  • Play all of these modes with four players locally
  • Create private lobbies for your friends online
  • From here, you can also join a friend if he or she is already playing a match
  • Set up tournaments that can be held weekly, daily, fixed period of your choosing
  • You will get a bunch of tools to make the tournament to your liking and allow only a certain group of players
  • After each race, you can go into a menu and view the best moments of that race for Mario Kart TV
  • You can then cut it down from 30 to 60 seconds, and let the clips focus on specific elements like action, items, drifting, among others
  • You can also watch the full race if you’re interested
  • Upload clips to Miiverse and YouTube

I can't believe coins will factor in your performance when it comes to stars... -_-
This was in previous Mario Kart games, but now that they're bringing it back, it'll be a whole lot harder to get them.

Is it still random or is there a fixed order now?

This still makes no sense. I know I've said this three times already, but they should really do a shop instead.

I'm confused with this free game promotion. in Terms and conditions it says you get a club Nintendo PIN on screen after buying the game from eshop. But don't you get the star points automatically after buying a downloadable copy, without any PIN?http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Campaigns/Mario-Kart-8-Bonus-Game-Promotion/Terms-Conditions/Terms-Conditions-879237.html

Not sure what to think about the battle mode yet. I'm hoping They will bring back some of the old battle courses through dlc.

Surprise, surprise! I disagree. I think that having tracks that can function as battle stages is brilliant. Yoshi Valley and Sherbet land are great choices for this. That said, I still feel they should've made specific battle arenas and just Pitt this alongside of those.

The problem I see is that for some of them you can't turn around quick enough to defend yourself from the rear, the tracks needed to be modified in my opinion.

This, I do agree with, as we saw that Moo Moo Meadows makes for a boring and rather infuriating arena. Not even the God kind of infuriating that Mario Kart is known for.
