    Official Discussion


    Mario and friends come back for a new installment of the infamous franchise, on Nintendo Wii. There are New features in this installement such as, an online racing mode, new motorbike vehicle types, a special balancing system for new and veteran players, and (in its initial release) a special Mario Kart wheel packaged with the game. There is also a new trick system, you can now perform tricks in the air by moving the steering wheel, or Wii Remote, respectively.

    Nintendo Wifi
    It will support an online racing mode where players will be able to go against each other in a single race racing simultaneously and an online battle mode.It has been confirmed that it will also feature 12 player online races. It has also been confirmed that there will be online leagues and rankings along with local rankings, which might be on a whole separate channel.

    Weapons
    The game would feature many of the old weapons and items that have been used in past Mario Kart games, and that a number of new items are also being added.

    New:
    1. POW block: it will hover over your players's head, and you'll need to jump three times in a specific rhythm to get rid of it…or you'll spin out. - Total CTR rip off

    2. Cloud : it will give your player a boost of speed for as long as you hold it, but it has the side-effect of zapping your kart with lightning which will shrink your kart if you hold onto it for too long. It's an item that can be passed from kart to kart by bumping into your competition, almost like a shrinking hot potato.


    Confirmed Characters
    * Mario
    * Luigi
    * Princess Peach
    * Yoshi
    * Toad
    * Baby Mario
    * Baby Luigi
    * Baby Peach
    * Koopa Troopa
    * Bowser
    * Donkey Kong
    * Diddy Kong
    * Wario
    * Waluigi
    * Boo
    * Play as your own Mii

    Rumored: Daisy, Birdo, Baby Boo, Baby Wario, Toadsworth, Dixie Kong and Sonic The Hedgehog


    Karts
    There will be multiple karts for each character. Each weight class appears to have their own vehicles, from a muscle car-like hot rod for Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, and Bowser to a baby stroller/pushchair for Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and Toad. Also, there appears to be a basic "Kart" and motorcycle for each character.

    Hm, I kinda don't hope that Sonic will be the new guest star of every Mario game. We only wanted him in Smash. =/

    i'm still wondering, if you could snake?
    With the new balancing system, i would assume that it would be difficult to snake.

    Snaking only possible if Snake is in MKWii! XP

    Yeah, I didn't even want Sonic in SSBB so please people stop with the Sonic-is-in-every-Nintendo-game rumor! [​IMG];

    You didn't want Sonic in Brawl??? He is going to be an awesome character and he is one of the most prominent figures in videogames.

    It will be interesting how the bikes handle. And if they would go faster than all the other karts off-road. They're also light weight so I imagine they would have better exceleration... and if its anything like the same system in MKDS, more exceleration = longer lasting MT's [​IMG]

    The bike thing is a good idea IMO. Hopefully the new trick system is nice and deep. They needed to add something to keep mario cart fresh IMO

    Just what the doctor ordered! Mario Kart for the Wii. Man life is good.
    Every version just kept on getting better and this one should hold true to that theory I hope.
    It has been my favorite game for years.
