Ever since Mario Kart Tour launched, fans have been asking, demanding, and praying for the inclusion of Luigi. He was promised to be a playable character but was strangely missing from the starting lineup, so yesterday's big announcement went down well with the green plumber's fan base.
Doing what he does best, though, Waluigi has now burst onto the scene to ruin Luigi's big day. Yet another announcement for Mario Kart Tour sees the return of Waluigi Pinball, a great little track from Mario Kart DS which has racers darting through a giant pinball machine inspired by the Wah-master himself, and Waluigi is joining the party as a playable character, too.
The Luigi announcement we spoke about also revealed the introduction of the Luigi's Mansion course, which also came from Mario Kart DS.
Well, at least Waluigi has managed to get into one collaborative Nintendo title, huh?
Its funny that piranha got a spot. 😂 Its like sakurai saying shut the f#*# up trolls haha.
Why such an original course, Nintendo, please don’t make me come back to this game...
I don't get the amount of expansions this game is getting (extra racers, tracks etc) when the actual game hasn't had any love for years (I don't count Mariokart 8 Deluxe, as it is a remake)
GET ON WITH MK9 ALREADY!!!
I wish Waluigi Pinball was in Mario Kart 8
I really hope all this nonsense is just a massive advertising push for Mario Kart 9 as Nintendo's tentpole game for 2020.
Wow. This game is giving it all.
Seems like a lot of people expected a mobile game to have traditional button controls 😀
@TheLightSpirit It's almost like people can enjoy some things you don't. Weird.
@TheLightSpirit let’s see.... do I carry my DS or my phone everyday, everywhere I go?
There, you have your answer
I still say, playing a racing game purely on a touch screen alone holds as much appeal to me as having to work an extra day without overtime pay.
It's as appealing as visiting my racist uncle and listening to him call me a traitor for leaving America, again.
It's as appealing as watching political news, at Church.
ANOTHER Mario Kart on the way!? Can that be true?
What happened to Metroid Prime 4, Nintendo???
This is... Mario Kart Tour, I guess...
I know, but I'm referring to speculation of MK9 in 2020...
@nin10dobot Do you seriously think that the same teams make both Mario Kart and Metroid Prime? Even if these rumours are true they’re not suddenly ‘abandoning’ MP4, they make plenty games every year.
Good. He doesn't deserve anything more than a soulless mobile game.
Isn't it obvious this will be ported to Switch next summer?
I'm honestly not expecting MK9 until the Switch's successor in few years. MK8DX is still selling well enough to keep it as the system's major kart racing title, and the one MK per system/console cycle has served them well enough in sales and to keep the series fresh with each new iteration.
Mario Kart Tour is pretty meh, but it's the mobile space so I give it a pass. When they're giving you the game for free and you're basically relegated to using the touch-screen, it's never going to be a truly representative experience compared to the dedicated versions on console.
Uh, no I DON'T think the same team makes MK and MP, I simply mean MP4 doesn't seem to be very high on Nintendo's list of priorities as it was announced literally years ago for the Wii U and here we are, with STILL no release date... last time I checked, anyway.
Expecting Mario Kart 9?
Too bad! WALUIGI TIME!
Waaaaaaaaawaawaaaaaaaeaawaaawaaawa I want pikmin 4 already!
@nin10dobot MP4 announced for the WiiU? Not sure where you got that from.
@nin10dobot MP4 was A: Announced for Switch and B: They publically announced they were handing it over to Retro Studios and had had to restart development at the start of this year, which is why there's no news.
This is something I can play between online matches in CTR. Yes, it's a game with horrible loading times on Switch but it's my favourite karting game.
It doesn't exist unless either credible leaks or official confirmation say otherwise.
Waluigi does have a spot in Smash, as an assist trophy 😏
Yeah, I guess I'm remembering wrong. In any case it's disappointing to learn of Prime 4's troubled development, but I'm relieved it's back in the hands of Retro, where it belongs. Anyway thanks for the clarification.✌
Waliugi Pinball is Easily in the top 3 ALL TIME of Mario Kart tracks.
Come at me.
@TheLightSpirit While a DS is in fact portable, it's not really practical to carry it around, games and all with it, everyday. It's more like a thing for long trips.
