I'm pretty sure standard ones will be fine. Mine has worked with SM3DW, so why not MK8?

I will still be downloading the game. Physical copies are losing their appeal for me. I have a small place and when Nintendo goes into the NFC stuff I will have plenty of physical items to showcase my fandoms lol

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Inside drifting still looks like the better choice unless there are other things that help balance it out. Do inside drifting bikes not gain boost as fast? Or is there something else?

As I got told, bikes don't gain any "top speed" stats as karts apparently get. What actually makes sense since they said in the direct, that karts are faster on straight lines. What gaining boosts considers; I don't really know, but I can imagine that you have more time to gain boosts with outside drifting karts/bikes since you have to start drifting earlier. And since you do the outside drift before it actually gets inside, you can't do short sharp curves one after the another that easy any more.
I think it is pretty much balanced.

Edit: I just noticed that in the video they say you can't steer your vehicle to increase or decrease your angle. But I'm not sure if he means MKWii or MK8. But I'm pretty sure you can do it to some degree in MKWii. He might be wrong at this, if he means Wii at this point.

I'll always love Daisy whether she's overpowered (MKWii) or not (MK Double Dash).
I also really like Rosalina, Mario, Toad, and King Boo (well, I did T_T). I'm also looking forward to racing as Ludwig and Shy Guy.

I'm not a big fan of the babies in general...but Baby Daisy and Baby Rosalina are just adorable :3
I also never really liked Miis (like the poster above the voices grated on me), Bowser Jr. (I know people love him, but I won't miss him), and Funky (it's annoying when 60-70% of online racers are the same character...what is this Ryu on Street Fighter?)

I'm indifferent about Pink Gold Peach. I know people hate her, but I'm going to wait and see...

Dark-Luigi

Baby/Mario, Baby/Luigi, and Bowser remain my faves.

Least favorite? Obviously, Pink Gold Peach. To think Metal Mario wasn't stupid enough. Ah well, the baby characters are weird to be in, but they do fit in the mario series, so it makes sense.

Favourite character is Peach, pretty fond of Rosalina too.

Least favourite, Metal Mario.
Also don't like the Mii or the babies.
If we're going to have Metal Mario, then Pink Gold Peach is fine by me as a character, because at least this one is Peach.

I'm fond of Yoshi in any and all contexts. I'm not very fond of playing as most of the heavy characters, though.

The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.

Favs: Toad, Shy Guy, Baby Luigi, Yoshi, and any lightweight Koopalings
Least: Metal Mario, Pink Gold Peach, Lakitu

Apparently someone pointed out that in the credtis, Bandai Namco help with this game...
Looks like they're more involved in Nintendo games other than Smash Bros.

What surprises me the most is that the person used Toadette (my favorite character btw) to unlock the "special part".
This game must be more balanced than I thought.
