We've all got our own personal preferences when it comes to Mario Kart. Some of these have been built up over the past two decades since the SNES original was released, while others are founded on more recent instalments. Which character a person picks says a lot about their play style and temperament — and thanks to an exchange with the actor Michael Cera, we now know that talk show host Jimmy Fallon likes himself a bit of Bowser action on the track.
Fallon was interviewing Cera on his show when the two revealed that they played a game of Mario Kart 8 before the filming began. Cera emerged victorious, but Fallon revealed that he deviated from his usual favoured pick — Bowser — in order to "be nice" and let Cera win. The conversation is sure to bring a smile to the faces of many a Mario Kart fan, and it's great to see Nintendo being talked about on such a high-profile show.
Do you agree with Fallon's pick? Do you think Cera made the right choice by sticking with his favoured selection, Wario? Do you think the vehicle or kart selection is more important? Let us know what you think by posting a comment below, and while we're on the subject be sure to check out our guide to choosing the perfect set-up in Mario Kart 8.
Lol Jimmy Fallon
I definitely feel certain ways about people who pick certain characters. I'm anti Wario, for example, and I'm usually anti Mii. Their voices are so annoying!
@crimsoncavalier I'll agree that the Miis are terribly annoying ("GO GO GO!"), but I will never accept hate on my main man Wario.
I'm a Comet Bowser man but I feel the upcoming Dry Bowser DLC might switch things up!
I've always been partial to Bowser and Wario, Bowser was all i used in the orginal SNES title, and Wario just stuck like glue to me after i played as him the first time on N64.
I agree with you. Don't see what is so bad about Wario.
Waluigi, on the other hand....
What about Jimmy Kimmel?
Was always a Toad man back in the day, then switched it up to koopa troopa i think with double dash and mario kart wii. these days Peach is my first choice.
Waluigi all the way folks ......often have a bash at others(link and black yoshi since the dlc) for a bit of fun but always back to the lanky purple one!!
Why still no diddy Kong aswell!!! He was a much picked character in my house.......only reason he's not in this I can think of is the diddy Kong racing rumours are true!?!?!
Pipe Frame Wario user here. I swtich to DK on occasions but I'm most comfortable with Wario on both MK7 & MK8. And playing with a Club Nintendo SNES classic controller too ^^, so D-Pad only (yes, I'm weird like that ☺)
I still have no idea what my preferred set-up is for MK8. I think I settled on a small selection of vehicles on MKW pretty quickly but MK8 seems to have many more subtle and incremental differences. I still haven't even scratched the surface with the game. It's a good thing that Nintendo give us 5 years to learn everything.
Hahahaha what a random explosion of emotion! That's Mario Kart for you I used to choose Bowser too until the DLC came out & now I choose Link. I'll probably alternate between Link & my Mii character once I get my hands on an Amiibo, some of the outfits look really cool
Jimmy Fallon will always be a weaseled face puppet. Nothing remarkable about him.
I like playing as a Reggie Mii.
I usually DK it up in multiplayer and well who doesn't use wario or bowser for time trials
I go between Luigi, Mii, and Link depending on mood. Luigi generally is my main, although Mii in a Link Suit is becoming a favorite.
"It's good to be bad." As soon as I saw that, I thought of the trailer for the original LEGO Batman...but I'm probably the only one.
Wow who knew jimmy was so intense about MK8? Im surprised he is obsessed with talking about the cyber slick wheels too. He must actually play it a lot. I still don't like him. Such a tool to the modern consumerist society.
I always knew Jimmy was a Mario Kart nerd.
Heavy characters stink... Baby Rosalina, Gold Kart, Crimson Slim, and Cloud Glider, baby!
Oh my lord, I really need to start watching Jimmy Fallon. I never had anything against him, I just don't normally tune in to 'tonight show' type programs... Actually I don't watch much TV that's not on my Hulu queue anymore.
As long as your not a mii player then your fine with me. For some reason, whenever a mii passes me, I get highly annoyed.
Love Jimmy Fallon. Even more now!
Freaking love jimmy. He's hilarious.
