I think that last unknown spot is Mii, so it's just the question of what those two characters after the baby characters are.

Its.... King Boo and Petey Piranha. Those guys were in Double Dash. Bowser Jr. isn't coming back.

I kinda wish they'd stop shoehorning Petey Pirahna into these games. When was his last actual appearance?

I THINK.... Petey was in either Super Mario Sunshine OR Mario Galaxy. King Boo has been everywhere from Super Mario 3D Land to Luigi's Mansion 3D to Super Mario 3D World.

Petey was in Sunshine, and had lookalikes in both Galaxies. More so the first, with Dino Pirahna. But it's not Petey.

I would still prefer Petey over Bowser Jr.

I think the most obvious point is that this still isn't finalized. Character code can still be in the game without them having a roster spot, here, yet. I'd also like to point out that this game doesn't even come close to suffering the same limitations of roster space that Smash might have to deal with. I'm personally very shocked at the lack of DK representation. I'm hoping at the very least that DK and Funky return, though I'd be cool with Funky being dropped to make room for other DK characters. Just so they don't feel so neglected. Keep in mind, they've got... what? 26 gigs of space to work with? And Nintendo's the master of VG compression, so that's a LOT of space for characters. And since this is Mario Kart, and not something with super high hardcore competitive potential, like Smash, balance is hardly even an issue.

I dunno. I could just easily see them going up to the next square of 49, if they wanted to. I think it'd be odd for them not to at least have King Boo, Bowser Jr., Diddy, and Miis in this game, so I'm guessing the first three fill those spots and Miis are tacked on somewhere, when available, like they were in MK Wii.

Also, Petey Piranha's most recent appearance outside of Mario Kart was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Just wanted to point that out. It doesn't mean anything by any means. But I just wanted to point that out.

Good lord. That looks frikkin' amazing, possibly the most gorgeous looking toon based racer i've ever seen 10x taco infinity. zoink! Really... I'm sorry, but i don't need a better looking mario kart. Nintendo realises how important 60fps is, unlike the goober heads down at sega who plunked Sega Team racing in 30fps just so they could achieve more detail....

Anyways,this is going to look absolutely amazing on my new 55" 2014 LED(RIP plasma for 2015) i plan on getting in less than a month. If anything, i'm disappointed by the lack of game pad features...

@UGXwolf Well DK is already in and Diddy will very likely be also, seeing as Funky was so popular in MKWii he has a good chance of returning but Cranky or Dixie may get his spot.

That picture just reminds me of how far Mario Kart has come and how I feel it evolved in the Mushroom Kingdom. At first it was a fun little hobby/pastime (Super, 64, Super Circuit) for the Mario crew; but then it became something bigger than that, a social event of sorts (Double Dash, DS). Then it became a tradition (Wii, 7), and now it's a full-on sport! (Mario Kart 8)

I love it!

I'd say that MK8 is the first Mario Kart game where the artistic intentions by Nintendo can start to bloom without being so limited by the technology. Using re-recorded music tracks by "live" musicians makes so much sense for this version.

Current Top 15: Splatoon, MK8, Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Terraria for Wii U, Super Mario Maker, Affordable Space Adventures, SM3DW, Yoshi's Woolly World, Twilight Princess:HD, Stealth Inc. 2, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Runbow, Bayonetta 1+2

I'd love them to bring back Bowser Jr. Diddy, Birdo, Dry Bones, Dry Bowser, King Boo, Petey Pirhanna, and Mii.

I can tell Petey Piranha will not be returning.
He was a big thing back in the days of the Sunshine Generation but then he lost that popularity as time flew by.
Rosalina seems to have replaced him as the Generation Spin-Off Character and Metal Mario's making a comeback too.

I haven't seen much or any discussion about the battle mode in this game lately. I imagine the battle mode is going to be very good this time. I don't want to be restricted to teams only and I want to have an option instead. I also hope for huge battle courses like what Mario Kart Wii had.

What retro battle courses would you like? I'd like a battle course from Super Mario Kart, N64 Double Decker, GCN Luigi's Mansion, Wii Funky Stadium, and 3DS Wuhu Town.

I can definitely see a gliding ramp in Luigi's Mansion on the roof going horizontally. It's kind of a medium-large stage...

Oh man, imagine if they put Tilt-A-Kart with more 8-Bit characters, using gliding to get to each of them? Mario, Peach, Toad, and Bowser, all in 8-bit. Maybe they can start glowing red, meaning that they're going to start breaking apart, and at the last minute, there are only two 8-bit characters left.
