I hope someone uses that video as proof that this is a bigger leap in graphics than other game consoles.

yes I am suggesting someone will use N64 to Wii U to try to prove Wii U is better because it's a bigger jump than PS3 to Ps4.

Alternatively you could just point to Mario Kart 8 running at 60fps, HD resolutions, all of the shiny with two player split screen. Then point to the PS4 and its complete lack of any split screen multiplayer games as well as the general trend towards 30fps just to keep the visuals up. Drop the mic, walk away.

It'd be cool if they add Nabbit.

This.

It would make sense too cuz Marios always, like, trying to catch up to Nabbit. That would be 20% cooler with cars and bikes involved ;D

My hype for Smash Bros. 4 is Officially OVER 9,000!!!!!! >8D

Though I still got plenty of hype left over for Mario Kart 8, Persona Q, Yarn Yoshi, anddddd Sonic Boom ;D

Does anyone think Retro will get to design another DK track? The one that did for Mario Kart 7 was great, and a Tropical Freeze track would be (and look!) amazing. Especially if David Wise composed the music for it!

Retro is not involved in the DK 8 development. Resources from Retro were added to the MK 7 team to be ready in time for the 2011 holiday season.

If Tropical Freeze courses would be added to MK8, Nintendo would adapt the visuals and music to the MK 8 style, which would be an interesting mix. Some of the David Wise soundtracks for Tropical Freeze (specially world 2) would sound much better with a live-musician treatment as in MK8. Looking back on the path the Nintendo music department (not counting composers-for-hire-projects like Tropical Freeze) has been following during the past 7 years, I think the main target Nintendo is aiming at right now is a complete Zelda HD game with a full live-symphonic soundtrack.

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Stick it to the Man, Wind Waker HD
Looking forward to:
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, SSB U, Affordable Space Adventures, Bayonetta 2, X, Hex Heroes, Yarn Yoshi, and more

Anyone looking forward to voice chat in MK8 might want to forget about it, it looks like the game won't have it. Just a warning to those wanting voice chat, though I don't know if there really was anyone here who was expecting MK8 to have the feature in the first place.

Anyways, bring on May 30th!

@mystman12: Since Retro Studios isn't involved in Mario Kart 8, I doubt there will be a Tropical Freeze track, unfortunately. It's not impossible, but it's not likely.

Not really a deal breaker, I end up muting everyone half the time anyways.

Now playing:
Hyrule Warriors (Wii U) | Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS) | UP NEXT: Fantasy Life (3DS - Out on October 24)

Starting with Yoshi. I always do.

And what retro track am I missing? I thought we were still short two of them.

And what else am I missing? When was voice chat ever on the table?

Oh, and I would like to point out what GameXplain did in their MK8 discussion. We have no new DK track and no new ice track. This doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot, but It's still worth pointing out.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.

No new DK track at all? That's too bad. I hope there's a new Wario track, then.

I've noticed that Mario Kart 8 is deviating from the rest of the series in that there's not that many tracks that are specific to a character, such as DK Jungle and Wario's Shipyard from the last game. There's Toad Harbor (which honestly looks like a Peach track to me because of the statue of liberty parody), the standard Mario Circuit, Shy Guy Falls, and the upcoming new Bowser's Castle. What I'm pointing out is that there's more tracks that are not character-based, like Cloudtop Cruise or Sweet Sweet Canyon, if you get what I mean.

@DestinyMan They meant /yet/. We still haven't seen a new DK track or a new ice track, so a Tropical Freeze track isn't all that far-fetched. Doesn't mean anything for sure, but it's a valid speculation.

INTERESTING... There still are some character themed tracks.

So my local Gamestop is already filled with some Mario Kart 8 advertising things, so that's cool. The entire window to the right of the entrance essentially a gigantic Wii U ad for everyone to see.

This game looks beyond incredible.

Sorry if this has been discussed already, but do you think we'll get a Rosalina themed level set in space on various galaxies? You can even boost from one galaxy to another using the star launcher things. I can just imagine the karts driving around a large circular galaxy and what not.

I mean the Mario Galaxy games are all about manipulating gravity, so is this game. Combine the two together and you have a world of crazy right there.
