They fixed major exploits in MK7 so they'll probably do the same if anything turns up here.

I really hope they don't bring back the lightning cloud. I dislike that thing more than I ever did the spiny shell.

Agreed, I hope the tanooki tail doesn't return as well.

@Booboos35 Seconed. POW block aside I personally thought the Tanooki Tail was the worst MK power up ever made.

3'd!!! Nuy Nintendo is unpredictable, espescially with that game! The only power-ups revealed so far are the classic (and the Blooper, unfortunately)

Ugh! The Tanooki Tail was useful at times but many more times have I been on the receiving end of a racer trolling me by slowing down to hit me with the tail... It's like a slap in the face. The Blooper should get a slight buff if it's returning. Cover more of the screen to justify its worth.

In your case, the tail actually was a slap in the face.

I hate the tail. It lasts slightly longer than the time it takes to get to the next set of blocks, so you have to drive slower (the opposite of what you are supposed to do in racing games, by the way) so that it goes away in time or not get an item. Not having an item always means getting red shelled, so it is an even worse option.

Blooper would be fun if it covered more of the screen and gradually washed off. As is, it is useless.

Come on, friends,

Actually, I kinda liked the POW Block, but if it were to return, it's attack should be remade/reinvented. Instead of hitting all players in front of you, it should be like this...
Untitled

  • The POW Block creates a shockwave when used.
  • It has a small radius at first.
  • The shockwave makes players spin out (& maybe lose their items)
  • It can be used 3 times, with each shockwave being bigger than the last.
  • Since players can now see items in other players hands, on the last use of the POW Block, it's colored red to indicate the biggest radius blast.

Thoughts?

If he's excited for Mario Kart 8, then that must mean he's got a Wii U! I wonder what his NNID is...

Okay, if they revert the item system back to the way it was in Wii, I'm not even touching this game. Wii had tons and tons of annoying items that made the game just plain not fun.

I got a feeling the item system will be incredibly similar to MK: Double Dash's item system...

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

This.
So many times in Mario Kart 7 when I get the tail I find myself just holding onto it for the remainder of the race or until I get attacked, just because I don't want to leave myself with no item.

Worst item ever is definitely the Lightning Cloud though, please let that never return.
Nothing worse when you're sitting in second or third and trying to catch up and then you get one of those.
It's especially bad online, where lag can be an issue.

Double Dash? With everyone having their own special item? I don't think that would work in a game with single racers, there's far too many characters for that.

I just hope that they don't add any more super destructive items, having Starman, Blue Shell, Bullet Bill, POW Block, Mega Mushroom, Lightning, and Lightning Cloud was way overboard.

@Spanjard I know there was a way to change the odds of certain power-ups or remove them completly in MKWii. But I never played MK7, but I guess the limitations of this portable system did not allow it.....

An item select menu like in the Smash Bros. series would be wonderful, I think.
