Diddy Kong racing was a great game but I don't think they need to make a sequel at this point. Mario Kart is the better franchise and most of the characters from Diddy Kong Racing other than Diddy, Banjo and Conker are totally forgettable and most fans don't have a connection to them.

So you play MK8 for the memorable characters, rather than for the fun gameplay and good online?

I play it for both but if it was the same game with random characters that I didn't know, I probably wouldn't be as interested in it as I am.

Well, there's no evidence I know of suggesting more Mario Kart 8 downloadable content after May, so at this point I'm assuming there is none.

But I would like to see one more downloadable content pack that includes actual arenas for battle mode. They could offer more than 3 characters to make it a better deal for people who don't play battle mode. I'd also like to see a number of missing characters that are strange omissions, like Bowser Jr., Diddy Kong (both are in Super Smash Bros.), Birdo, and King Boo. It's strange that despite having a much smaller roster, I still consider Mario Kart Wii's roster the best.

Battle mode should have been patched with arenas instead of having it be DLC. I don't like some of the choices for the roster (Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario, Pink Gold Peach, etc) but the Koopalings won me over.

Yeah, the Koopalings are a great addition. It's just strange having insignificant characters and even non-character skins when there are such glaring omissions. Both Diddy Kong and Bowser Jr. are relatively important characters at this point. I still don't understand how they aren't in the roster. The director of the game even addressed the issue, so I assumed they'd be some of the first characters included with any downloadable content, but that hasn't happened either. It's not game breaking or anything like that though. I like Mario Kart 8 more than Mario Mart Wii. But from a design perspective, considering characters at all, I don't understand how they reached what we've got.

You might want to browse back in the thread and read what I wrote before.

I don't expect more DLC, although I'm still puzzled as to why Nabbit isn't a character in MK8.

I wouldn't call them insignificant. But then I remember them from the Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World cartoons where they had a large presence.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

@Bass_X0 Please don't revive old threads. I think I already told you before...
