    well, you got a point there, It would be nice to have a new MK since it's actually a long time since they released MK8 (almost 3 years). They better add more items an 8 player-local play.

    I'm really excited for this as I skipped the WiiU completely. Hopefully they bring all of the best WiiU games to Switch!

    Not likely. You're gonna have to get a wiiu if you want to play its best games aside from botw and mk8 and smash.

    There is litterally 2 Wii U ports. BOTW and MK8 Deluxe. Don't see your point.

    Yeah. MK8 sure is worse than MK7's broken Metal Mario, MKWii's broken Funky and bikes, and MKDS's broken snaking. And sure, the 1080p gorgeous graphics are sure worse than MKDS's amazing 144p 2-polygon models. Sure.

    That's were you're wrong. A vast majority of the future or current Switch buyers don't have or won't have bought MK8 Wii U before. MK8 was launched on one of the worst-selling Nintendo home consoles yet. Do you want them to say 'OK, so to play the current Mario Kart title, you'll have to buy a system that is now abandoned, has outdated HW, and was launched in 2012.' ? Or you want them to launch a third MK to manage online at once with MK8 and MK7? Come on, don't be ridiculous.

    Actually, using Japanese releases, the time seems to be quite average :
    Super Mario Kart to Mario Kart 64: 4 years, 3 months, 18 days
    Mario Kart 64 to Mario Kart: SC: 4 years, 7 months, 7 days
    Mario Kart: SC to Mario Kart: DD: 2 years, 3 months, 17 days
    Mario Kart: DD to Mario Kart DS: 2 years, 1 month, 2 days
    Mario Kart DS to Mario Kart Wii: 2 years, 4 months, 3 days
    Mario Kart Wii to Mario Kart 7: 3 years, 7 months, 21 days
    Mario Kart 7 to Mario Kart 8: 2 years, 5 months, 28 days
    Mario Kart 8 to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 2 years, 10 months, 30 days

    Still, they actually added 8 player local play, man.

    Well those 3 are literally the best games right?
    Oh and Bayonetta 2, which I'm sure will come at some point.

    Ssme here, I was actually super happy that it got announced for the Switch because that was one of the only games that made me regret not having a Wii U

    Don't forget Mario Maker (which is bound to someday) and Splatoon (which is getting a sequel)

    That's my point! they have enough time to make a brand new MK but choose to make a remaster instead, go figure why, cuz I dunno, but well, let's take what's there in my case, I don't know everyone else.
    And good to know! this remaster perhaps it's worth the hassle.

    I really hope they fix the stuttering, that drove me crazy in the Wii U version

    Well, kinda. There's new tracks for the Battle Mode.

    The 59fps thing? I honestly can't see what's the fuss about and I've played Mario Kart 8 since its launch on 2014. Can't wait for the Deluxe edition to be released, I'm itching to play it with the Switch Xbox One Control-- I mean, the Switch Pro Controller. :P

    hmm, looks interesting, my wife likes it a lot more than I do, wish it was more than just battle courses and some new characters. I might double dip when the game gets cheaper.

    indeed, cant argue with that, if they added new courses this game would be worth it imo, but right now it really is a just a sexed-up port.

    The WiiU was already pretty much dead (officially) before Zelda:BotW was released for it. Nintendo did the WiiU customers a favour.
