They sure are. Absolutely stunning. :)

Gyro controls are optional right?

Bloom... Deal with it.

I don't get the people hating on this. It's a major step forward in graphics and gameplay. This will be the Ultimate Mario Kart.

@Jimonfire: What hate? I've seen nothing but praise for this game so far. I guess you would always have those obnoxious few who just want to be different...

I could be wrong, but the graphics in this game are going to be the best a Mario game is ever going to have.

Most wanted Smash Bros. newcomers

2. Mii
3. Takamaru
4. Kat & Ana
Little Mac was on the list, but he's been confirmed.

Supposedly the Gamepad is a little useless however,
With the touch screen only getting used for a obnoxiously dramatic car horn. Which is admittedly a slight shame, As I would have personally preferred a more Miiverse-intergrated option. Where those who have already passed the finish line are able to message everyone across a local match-based Miiverse thread

I might get this game, but only if there's a good amount of new content. Especially on the online scene, I want to get into more online games and it'd be nice for Nintendo to fully deliver in this regard (which they've said is their focus for this game).

I don't know what anyone can do with a touchscreen on a racing game--especially on frenetic Kart-racers. Your hands are always busy either steering, or pressing the gas. The only thing that can be done with the screen is to use it for a mirror, a map, or for checking lap times. Basically, just for glancing at, not for touching.

The touchscreen is perfect for telemetry, and for setup changes, and for other menu-derived things. But that isn't a feature in Kart racing games.

Considering it's been the case since at least Mario Kart 64, I unfortunately don't see that pattern changing. Mario Kart has always had pretty big problems with character/kart balance.

Just look how many people in the Mario Kart DS era used the Dry Bomber because it was good for 'snaking'. How most used lightweight characters in the oldest games. There was also a preferred kart in Double Dash, but I can't remember what one.

Yeah, sure it can be annoying when a bunch of other racers always pick the exact same character, but the party nature of Mario Kart means you always have a chance to win. A slight character or kart advantage will not drastically swing the favour.

Also yeah, touchscreen use is minimal. At best, it can copy the 3DS and DS use of the mini map.

They should bring back the Fake Item Box, and character-specific items (i.e. in Double Dash).

This Super Mario Sunshine avatar clearly illustrates how I'm feeling.

I actually own a few Pianta outfits at home.

Examining magical paintbrushes is one of my hobbies.

Nah, I'd rather no more remakes for a while.

Instead, how about a new Mario Kart game like Double Dash? New tracks, new characters, better graphics and music, online play... except the two person kart gimmick returns complete with online co-op. That'd be better.

So I was going through Mario Kart DS's wiki page and I found this line in the "development" section

"They considered letting players place items anywhere on the track instead of just behind their kart. However, the developers found it too confusing because the game already had too many distractions, making it difficult to control where to place items while racing."

Seems like a very overly-ambitious idea for the DS that could work PERFECT for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U dontchu think? I think the Wii U is perfectly capable of handling something like that and it would make fantastic use of the Gamepad.

What do you guys think?
