I know there are mixed opinions on DLC, but if Nintendo released map packs from all of the previous Mario Karts…
I’d have to just hand them my credit card!

I couldn't imagine why DLC would be a BAD thing...if you want it, it's available to download...if not, you don't have to get it! It's as easy as that
Mario Kart DLC would be really cool, but knowing Nintendo, it probably won't happen. I'm sure they will include more than enough tracks this time around, however. They said that there would be more than the usual 32 (16 new/16 old).

I'd honestly tolerate them putting the retro courses as DLC later if it meant more focus on more new things for the game.

When and where did they say that? That would be cool if it's true.

I know it's not a 100% reliable source, but the guy WAS at e3 after all and the information he wrote sounds very plausible

A couple of people on the internet are sayin' that this game reminds them of F-Zero. The antigravity thing does feel Fzeroish....

DLC of old tracks would be awesome. I haven't played many Mario Kart games and I wasn't planning on picking this one up, but the presentation at E3 sold me. It looks amazing, allows me to support a great company like Nintendo and looks like it should satisfy my racing needs on some level. It also helps that my wife is more likely to join in if she can use a cute character.

Getting to game with the wife is the number one reason I am looking forward to this and Smash Bros.

Which probably means the F-Zero series is done for.

On a somewhat random note...I hope that the Wii rating system makes a return. Getting a 3 star ranking on all of the cups on 3DS was way too easy. It took me MONTHS on the Wii (only using the Wii wheel too!) before I got my 3 star rating + golden wheel icon. I felt much more accomplished doing it on the Wii than the DS. I also hope the VR/BR system is closer to the Wiis. I had 9999 VR on the Wii, but it fluctuated a lot depending on my performance. On 3DS it just seems to go on forever (although I know 99999 is the cap, I'm only at like 8000).

Personally, I very much hope Nintendo do not go back to the broken ranking system of MKWii. The limit of 9999 was far too low & once you hit it there's no incentive to keep playing online. I even saw people who had 9500+ points win races & still lose points simply because everyone else's number was too low. Whereas 3DS fixed this issue by raising the ranking points cap & fixing the point loss when you place bad balance I think. The ranking points going on forever is a good thing for an online MK, means there's no reason to stop playing

Even if it comes to EU in April, NA could still get it in March.

I hope not! I've been getting really into F-Zero GX recently.

I doubt anyone will ever really notice the antigrav mechanic while actually playing the game. The game looks purdy and it's nice that bikes and coins are back, and I'll buy it eventually... but I'm not really excited about it.

Nintendo really needs to scrap the 10 coin limit, it really cuts down on the amount of fun in coin battle mode..

I wasn't surprised at all when Nintendo said MK8 was coming out in Spring 2014. Mario Kart Wii also came in the Spring, and Nintendo also needs a strong system seller for Wii U in the Spring. And if they release MK8 this Fall, then people may be still tired of Mario Kart.

I've decided. I want all 7 of the Koopalings to be playable! They are each very unique but I feel they don't get as involved in the Mario series as they should. They really only show up whenever the newest New Super Mario Bros. game comes around.

No, just no. I'm a fan of the Koopalings myself, but 7 more Mario characters is far too much, especially considering they'd be taking up valuable space that other more unique characters could've gotten.

EDIT: Wow, I forgot that this is the Mario Kart thread, not Smash Bros., my bad. Man my brain has been entirely out of whack today...

I would really like a few Koopalings like Lemmy, Ludwig, and Wendy, but all of them would be a bit much, unless this Mario Kart was to have the biggest character roster yet.

This may just be NSLU talking, but I agree, I would like to see some if not all the koopalings make their debut in the series.
