    Ignoring anything resembling good design practices in designing a console, ignoring the market, providing few games for their device, delaying a game originally cast for the current console so as to make it for the next one and finally releasing a thing that, even taking some of the odd design choices as unassailable dev choice, is a fairly good case study in split focus game releases?

    If that is how Nintendo treats their friends...

    Nintendo shot itself on the foot with the WiiU so even though it was their fault how the WiiU (the name didn't help it at all) commercially failed, it also had a small userbase to cater to but I'm glad Ninty released Zelda:BotW. I own the original version on the WiiU (sealed) and the superior and ported Switch edition.

    Though the name is hardly blameless I don't care to pin half as much as some do on it.

    It's MK8 but it feels like a new game in its own right.

    I just wish those of us who bought the DLC early on could get a little discount or something.
    Though hopefully the game will get a price drop fast enough since its just a port for the most part.
    Hopefully it'll be cheap by the time the New Switch Pro XL Plus Star version is out.

    These are my two biggest wishes as well. On the 3DS you can create a custom cup but you can't play it - only people you streetpass can. Having Grand Prix and Endurance modes where the lap count was increased to 15 & 30 (for example) would make for great boredom relief on long journeys.

    Hmm what about last place eliminated on a 16 player race?
