    Retro is collaborating in the development, they're not the sole developer according to live blogs from GameSpot and IGN.

    Same as Zelda?

    I wish I had more information. Like is that 60 FPS even with 3D?

    From what I saw at Nintendo's E3 conference the game looks just like the NDS version but with gliders :/

    Well most Mario Karts are similar, but the differences now being-
    - gliders and other vehicles
    - you can customize wheels, frame, and other vehicle parts now
    - larger environments
    - besides being new, the environments seem to have more terrain variation instead of basic slopes and such

    Then of course, you've got your standard graphical increase. For example...

    This-

    Is a huge upgrade over this-

    Most Mario Kart games will inevitably play similarly to each other. They always have new tracks (and some retro ones).

    You forgot kart customization, which is a very big and new aspect too, it seems.

    This game is the main reason for now I'm getting a 3DS.

    Also, out of curiosity, what Mario Karts DON'T run in 60 frames per second?

    This. I see no graphic difference whatsoever. Just a new gameplay.

    EDIT: Quickly changed my mind, I see the difference now with Granville's pics.

    Pretty sure Mario Kart 64 didn't. I dunno if any others ran below 60fps (don't think so).

    EDIT- i can't imagine someone not being able to tell the difference in the graphics. It's enormous. [​IMG]

    Nevermind, should have known someone would be able to tell when i posted direct comparison shots.

    I'm pretty hyped over the game itself, though the graphics were definitely underwhelming when I saw the trailer. A ton better than Mario Kart DS, but still miles off Mario Kart Wii. Maybe it's just the upped resolution of the screenshots... [​IMG]

    Mario Kart 64, I believe, ran at

    At first, when I saw the gliders, I was a bit concerned. Then I saw the underwater racing, and I was even more concerned.

    After seeing it in action, though, those concerns were tossed aside. The game looks awesome. It seems that they've gotten rid of tricks and bikes, which I think is a side step (as opposed to a step backwards of forward) - until I actually play it, I won't know if the glider/scuba is better than bikes and tricks, but it looks like fun. This might give us some track variation as well - it'll be interesting to see what the glider can do in Maple Treeway, for example: Will they ditch the canon and let us glide? Or will they even let us use it in the Retro Cups?

    I'm super stoked.
