    somewhere
    Metal Mario has. Gold is new. And completely pointless, too.

    This is what Mario Kart 8 Wii U should've been TBH.

    Edit: Lol Nintendo locked comments

    Ah, right. Metal Mario not Gold Mario. Another pointless gold character.

    Mario Kart 8 has tons of pointless Gold and Baby versions of characters.

    Most of it can be acquired on the WiiU version. Except for the new content, of course.

    One stage means the entire game has given a remake?

    Gold Mario uis suposed to be a reward for completing all 200cc Grand Prixs. And it's placed as an alt. appearance for Metal Mario (like female Villager and Inklings and alt. Shy Guys/Yoshis). Plus, there is a new drifting boost tier, we've seen purple sparks. Finally, DK dabs at 2:45.

    Beginner mode...hmm I think they should had the same difficulty levels but with the option in settings to turn off track fall offs. I barely play mario kart 8 and it came with my wii u with all the dlcs, due to track fall offs. They are the stupidest part of mario kart

    Screw Mario Party, now we have a pseudo-juggernaut type game in MK, shines and coins return, and well....battle mode! at least! it might be worth buying it even if you had MK8 on the wii u.

    Really? They're putting in a proper battle mode now? The thing that fans had been clamoring about through the entirety of that game's relevance on Wii U?

    "What's that? You want a proper battle mode? A staple of the series up to this point? Okay, you can have it three years later, on a different full price port, on a new system you have to buy, where the new controllers you need for multiplayer are expensive."

    Also arcade systems have several, and only a couple of years apart in some cases.
    No system ever lacked an exclusive zelda, until it did.
    There is never more than one "generation" of pokemon on a system, until there was.
    The wars series was on every system/handheld, until it wasn't.
    Never had a system without mario in the launch window? Don't tell me Luigi's mansion counts.
    Square and Final Fantasy are Nintendo staples.
    Nintendo sell Rare? Are you mad?
    Europe always gets things last. There were even exclusives in some instances.

    Likewise "we have never done it before" is probably not great business sense. Feel the market out, play to that is the better plan.

    Anyway the only features and modes I am interested in is being able to create a tournament with these specific tracks, in this order (or maybe random), with this many laps and maybe a selectable CC as well. It is not even a hard thing to do, and various Nintendo games have such granularity already.... maybe I will go back and make some hacks.
    That said if they want to trim the sprawling mess of mechanics that seem to be infesting modern offerings I am OK with that too.
