Ok, this thread has treaded far too deep into spoiler territory. I understand this is a thread about a game gearing up for release and that discussion about said game will likely be about the gameplay that has already been revealed by people who have played the game.

That's fine, but I just don't want people to ruin the magic when I play for the first time and going into several aspects of the game with my mind already made up because of someone else's opinion. Personally, I find a game much more fun when I don't already know everything about it.

Continue to go about your business, you guys did nothing wrong. I'll just be sitting out ths thread until the game releases.

Yeah, now I know the names of all 32 tracks and the final modes and roster all before reading this thread....:(

Get ready for the HYRULE SPIDERMAN! Coming to Wii U and 3DS this summer!

With all the extra places to go in Yoshi Valley, it makes for a good battle mode track. If they have to use existing courses, that was one of the best to choose, I think.

Another look into Rainbow Road from the Nitro Cup.

By the way, when you watch it, you'll see that you can Spin Boost while gilding. A nice little touch.

I limited myself to just the intro of the track in that video (love the music for that btw ^^) and it looks pretty cool. Like a modernised Rainbow Road. I understand why some people may not like it though but I refuse to see the whole track. Like the Blooper rocket floating in space there.

For those of you who are disappointed about the new Rainbow Road, cheer up. Have some Brawl in the Family.

I actually feel a bit disappointed with the new Rainbow Road. The music isn't nearly as good as the N64 RR in the retro cups and the course seems really short and doesn't seem to have much to it at all.

EDIT: Haha, thanks for that Viridi. I really love BitF.

Well, if it can destroy spiny shells, you would have to get one in first place. I wonder how rare they are?

And if the new Rainbow Road disappoints, the new Bowser's Castle sure doesn't.

I agree. Bowser's Castle looks pretty darn sweet. And I suppose we still have the N64 version of Rainbow Road, which looks phenomenal. And it has one of the greatest tunes in gaming remixed with a big band... SO EXCITED.

Hopefully, they're (the super light thing) about as rare as a Green Shell or Banana.

Practically? I'm expecting them to be about as common as a Mushroom (aka plausible to get, but never there when you need it).

As for Bowser's Castle, looks awesome to me.

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.
