    This game already sounds perfect. I hope they have a remake of baby park from double dash.

    Zero G is here. Nintendo, you have no excuses. It's time to make F-Zero U [or FU for short, if this game is never released].

    Crossover F-zero track DLC. That or one from Kirby Air Ride.

    First we get an entire day of Mario Kart info blow out, now were getting a Smash Bros specific Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, MY BODY CANNOT SUSTAIN THIS HYPE.
  • J-Fid - April 4, 2014 8:02 a.m.

    I've thought of doing nothing but stare at the Smash Direct page until Tuesday due to the ridiculous amount of HYPE! Really hoping we get a release date.

    I'm just glad we are even getting something like this so we can get info about the game instead of the usual character reveals, not that those aren't awesome hell we'll probably get one but info about the game in general will be neat. Fingers crossed for a release date.

    Never was a fan of the bikes in a "kart" game. It's like when SSX had its stint with skis (and I don't want to believe 2012's definition of the acronym as canon and even still skis weren't included)

    So, does zero G in Mario Kart mean even less progress in the F-Zero department?

    The game's visuals are looking absolutely fantastic. I'm glad they put a little bit of elbow grease into it. The main thing I'm hoping for is a 4-player Tournament mode(or 5-player) like double-dash had. It's fun to be able to unlock items and characters together.

    Can't wait! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sP2CT-KPos

    Although it's more of the same, it looks really awesome. Hopefully it'll give some fuel to the Wii U.

    Well I've gone from "It's Mario Kart. I'll play and love it." to "HOLY BLEEP WORDS WHY IS MAY 30 NOT APRIL 3?!?!?" Also, koopalings are a cool addition, but I expect I'll just use Yoshi every time as usual. I have a tradition to uphold, after all.

    Glorious and Delicious. The game is really shaping up awesome and there's still more to.come. The antigravity mixed with Gliders and Underwater only equal awesome and fun track designs. I'm loving the water park and what is shown to be a Disco Bowser's Castle. There's also word that the Item customization on the communities will be expanded for more personal rules and the new items you mentioned seem great. Now we just gotta see how that Battle mode is going. Mario Kart is making a massive hit to be the best game in the series with so much customization, fun track designs and amazing and beautiful Graphics. And given its an online usage game, its definitely gonna last a long time. I'm Pumped.Now with that said I gotta go to bed its almost 4 am here in Brooklyn!
  • Vonter - April 3, 2014 1:12 a.m.

    Me wants. I also like that it is still confirmed 4-player local mode (would have wished 5) but still is something games rarely put these days. I like the N64 rainbow road was revamped, also how now it is a single lap, since it is so freaking long.
  • shawksta - April 3, 2014 4:37 a.m.

    If there's anything I want them to add, its to bring back Funky Stadium as a Battle Mode Map. That was one of my personal favorites. Also its a stretch given they already did it in 7, but maybe they can bring back Waluigi Pinball, that could've been awesome but its a shame 7 used it already so they might not bring it back but hey, Toads goddamn Turnpike is back, lets see if they'll be massive dickheads with Mirror Mode,.which I hope they do.
  • J-Fid - April 3, 2014 6:30 a.m.

    Forget Funky Stadium. Bring back Funky KONG!
  • shawksta - April 3, 2014 9:07 a.m.

    Given that they are bringing back Metal Mario and Lakitu from 7, and all the babies, maybe we'll get lucky. Also apparently the Zero G sections makes the karts go FASTER, making it even more awesome.
  • Vonter - April 3, 2014 10:12 a.m.

    They have said there are still characters to be revealed. I didn't play the Wii or 7 versions but I think this is the largest ensemble of characters in a Mario Kart. 27 characters have been confirmed so far.
  • shawksta - April 3, 2014 11:10 a.m.

    27? Damn, Mario Kart wii was the last biggest game and that had 23 including your Mii. http://pad3.whstatic.com/images/thumb/d/d7/Unlock-All-Characters-in-Mario-Kart-Wii-Step-13.jpg/527px-Unlock-All-Characters-in-Mario-Kart-Wii-Step-13.jpg

    Here's a breakdown of all that has been confirmed, so far: http://www.gonintendo.com/s/225462-mario-kart-8-ultimate-info-round-up-tons-of-details
