1NavySphealTue 19th Feb 2013 With the news that a new Mario Kart on the way to Wii U, I figured I want to share my ideas. <Gameplay> I believe the gliders and underwater sections should be brought back from MK7. The same style of drifting is good as well. Some people don't like the hop, so make that removable if they wish. (It's not used for much except tiny shortcuts anyway) Many people have different opinions on 8 or 12 racers, so this should be adjustable in the Options menu. The Wii U GamePad would be used in many ways. You would get a overhead shot of the track like that is in the corner of the screen like most racers, which would be in the corner of the GamePad. I also can't decide whether to have a rear view mirror on the GamePad, in the middle of the screen, or the close-up of the track as seen in MK7 and DS. Customization would return with all of the parts from MK7 and more. Tricks would return as well. We would see the Grand Prix mode, Time Trial, VS for quick games, Mission Mode, and Online Play. I would like to see hand-drawn emblems available too. <Tracks> There will be five cups: Mushroom, Flower, Acorn, Star, and Special. All new tracks. The Retro will be Shell, Leaf, Block, Banana, and Lightning. I would prefer more GBA tracks to be included like Ribbon Road and Cheese Land, unlike the whopping 1 GBA track in MK7. <Characters> All characters from past Mario Karts return, with new characters. For the new characters, I don't have much ideas on me, but lots of people want E. Gadd. I know that's not going to happen. People want Dixie Kong, Cranky Kong, Tiny Kong, and even Kiddy Kong in the game. It's not Donkey Kong Kart people, it's Mario Kart. It's a bit of a stretch to include Funky Kong. Fawful would be a great addition, although not too mainstream. A Luma would be a fun character. Maybe a Noki, or a Pinta. A Hammer Bro would be fun to drive as. Can Goombas drive? I also support the ideas of skins, like changing Mario's color so he looks like Metal Mario, or maybe changing Yoshi's color. I love Double Dash, and maybe the game can live on by being a mode in the game, like single mode and double mode. Just an idea. Coins make a return. <Items> As for new items, all return, and include a Freezie from Mario Bros.(and GCN's Sherbert Land) that you can throw and temporarily freeze enemies. You could get Spiny Eggs and chuck them forward at foes, spinning them and slowing them down for a few seconds. Make sure the Boo item returns. I thought Star Bits could be a alternative to Fire Balls. I'd LOVE to see the Chain Chomp return or maybe replace the Bullet Bill(that's just opinion.). You could use F.L.U.D.D. to shoot a limited amount of water at foes and slow them down, or maybe make puddles that karts can spin out in. The fake item box returns also. Yoshi's egg returns from Double Dash, and upon breaking, drops three random items like Bananas, Mushrooms, or even Stars. The Rock Mushroom item will turn you into a speeding rock that can flatten other karts, and it lasts a limited time. Swerve into a wall, however, and the rock around you shatters. That's my take on it. Please feel free to add upon this list or even make your own. 3DS FC: 4596-9744-5868 Buffalo wings are a gift from the gods themselves.
