Mario Kart Wii U in the works

Postby KH81314 » 23 Jan 2013, 17:05

I didn't enjoy Mario Kart 7 as much as I did for the Wii. I enjoyed playing Mario Kart with my family instead of just strangers.

Mario Kart Wii U in the works

Postby KoreeluStromboli » 23 Jan 2013, 17:07

That's cool to hear! ^^

Here's characters that I want to see as playable characters in Mario Kart Wii U: Pianta, (maybe) Noki, Kamek/Magikoopa and (maybe) a Hammer Bro. or a Chargin' Chuck.

Retro tracks I want to see: One of the two Wuhu Loops (3DS), Melody Motorway (3DS), Cheese Land (GBA), Lakeside Park (GBA) and (maybe) Ribbon Road (GBA).

A new Mario Kart, new 3D Super Mario, and new Zelda were inevitable. I'm looking forward to what things that Mario Kart 8/U will bring to the series.

This is looking to be one hell of an E3 show after 2012's disappointing one!
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

I don't have a WiiU, but I'll certainly be looking at Nintendo in E3 to see what they can devliver with these announced games.
That will make me decide.

But hey. New Mario Kart. I absolutely cannot wait.

Nintendo need to have a large character roster for this game, as there just weren't enough to choose from in MK7. But to make this worthwhile, character specific items need to return.
What could the game pad be used for, though? I think it should show a map, and a new item could allow you to place bananas or green shells anywhere on the track using the touchscreen! Just my thought, though. :D

I need something interesting to write here.

Is it just me or is anyone slightly disappointed after today. Its just my life seems to be on a cycle, going around in circles. Every 6 or 7 years I buy a new console, slightly better than the last one with a new idea, we then get new super mario bros, a 3d mario, a zelda game and a mario kart game and a few surprises along the way, then we start again. I just feel they are only making this because they feel they have to make a new mario kart rather than they have a brilliant that idea for a new mario kart. Im sorry, im not gonna lie. I love nintendo, really. I am gonna be playing games probably until I die and I didnt mean to sound cynical.

Edit-- I also forgot to mention Yarn Yoshi. Thats new :P
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

Finally some news on MK8! I really can't wait for this one. I hope it's more like the Wii one than MK7 and I want custom tracks!

Can't wait for the Classic Track predictions for this one.
But I'd still much rather have six cups for each type [Modern/Classic]. This gives more opportunities then for classic tracks, as well as the modern ones. But even if not, at least bring back the All-Star Cup for both cup types.

The controller seems perfect for this game, and off screen play will be great

Mario Kart is cool but hearing about a F-Zero would have been even cooler.
Dear Nintendo, GIVE US AN ALL NEW STARFOX!!! please...

I think the most exciting bit about this announcement was that it'll be at E3 in playable form.

It'll be interesting to see what it'll be like,hopefully Nintendo will bring back the mission mode that was in Mario Kart DS.
